KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - We have a WVLT Weather Alert for Sunday, with damaging wind and hail a possibility out of the line of rain and storms that are moving through.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Storms are moving in from the Northwest. We have scattered storms developing ahead of the main line, dropping Southeast through the 6 p.m. hour. This hits an 80% coverage of our area until this evening. Temperatures are in the mid to upper 80s ahead of the front, then falling to the upper 60s to low 70s as the heaviest, most organized line of rain and storms. Main threats during your WVLT Weather Alert are damaging winds and the potential for some hail. Locally heavy rainfall could cause flash flooding.
Tonight comes with scattered rain and storms, and a low around 70 degrees.
We continue with what is more of an on and off rain and storm pattern for the next several days. This also puts high in the low 80s at best until late week.
While no watches are in place yet, locally heavy rainfall approaching 2 to 3 inches in spots will lead to runoff issues and rising creeks.
Friday and Saturday are warmer, in the mid to upper 80s, but we are still looking at scattered rain and storms to develop at times. Fourth of July plans need to have a contingency plan for safety indoors. Remember, if you’re close enough to hear the thunder then you’re close enough to be struck by lightning!
