KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - While we’re in the middle of an active pattern this week, we’re getting a bit of a break today. A slow-moving storm system moving in from the west will bring back more likely rain chances to close out the week.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Scattered showers over Upper East Tennessee have moved on, but a couple lingering downpours will fade away through midnight over the Smokies. As we dry out overnight, a bit of patchy fog will move in to take its place. Look for lows around 70 Wednesday morning.

Wednesday starts off with spotty rain, but builds up to scattered rain and storms midday through the evening hours, especially over the areas surrounding the valley. Those across the lower elevations will see a mix of clouds and sun, sending highs into the lower 90s. The humidity stays very high, so it feels like the upper 90s. Highs will be in the mid 80s where we have more scattered rain and storms outside of the Valley.

LOOKING AHEAD

Rain coverage is starting to build up Thursday to Friday thanks to a slow-moving weather system. We’ll see batches of downpours and storms move through at times,knocking our highs back to mid 80s to end the week.

The pattern remains active but slightly “cooler” heading into next week. We may see things start to dry out briefly by next Wednesday.
