KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The lack of humidity has made for a beautiful start to the week, but as it creeps back in, expect a wet stretch leading up to the weekend.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Scattered storms will continue to rumble across parts of the Cumberland Plateau and southeast Kentucky into the early morning hours. The lower elevations still have an outside chance of seeing a shower by sunrise.. We’ll dip into the mid 60s by Wednesday morning.

Wednesday and Thursday come with more clouds and about a 40% chance of storms, more so by the afternoon to evening hours. The high will hover in the mid 80s.

LOOKING AHEAD

Friday comes with on and off waves of rain and storms throughout the day and on through Friday night as well. With the extra clouds and downpours, we’ll shave a few degrees off our highs, only reaching the lower 80s.

Saturday has a few leftover downpours, mainly in the higher elevations. By early next week, we should get to soak up a bit more sunshine. Look for highs to bounce back into the mid to upper 80s.
