KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - A cut-off storm system with nowhere to go will bring scattered rain to parts of East Tennessee starting Sunday.

After topping out in the mid 80s on Saturday afternoon, another beautiful night is ahead. Later tonight, look for another clear, calm and cool stretch. Lows will dip to near 60 degrees.

The aforementioned cut-off storm system will start its residency in our area starting on Sunday. While the best chances for rain will remain over Virginia and the Carolinas, the Foothills, Smokies and upper East Tennessee will have an opportunity here locally. We’re going with a 40% chance of rain and storms for both Sunday and Monday with highs running in the low to mid 80s.

Lingering rain chances are still possible during the heat of Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons as the cut-off storm remains nearby. We’ll climb from the lower 80s on Tuesday into the upper 80s come Thursday.

Once the stubborn cut-off system leaves, high pressure brings back some of that heat just in time for the first full weekend of summer. Highs should jump back into the lower 90s.
