KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Off and on rain chances will be the story to start the week, but more sunshine and more reasonable temperatures arrive this weekend.


Rain and storms will gradually taper off through midnight before becoming more spotty by Tuesday morning. The low will be around 70 degrees. Also watch for a bit of patchy fog that may limit your visibility.

Another hot and humid day will develop Tuesday. This time, we’re only expecting about a 20% chance for storms. The high will be around 89 degrees, feeling more like the mid 90s.


A few more isolated downpours are expected both Wednesday and Thursday. Most of the chances will surround the valley, but one or two may survive into the lower elevations. Highs both days will be the warmest of the week, hovering around 90 degrees.

Rain chances will taper off for Friday into the weekend. Highs will drop from the upper 80s on Friday into the low to mid 80s by Saturday. Morning lows will be a bit more refreshing this weekend, as well, dipping down into the low to mid 60s.

Labor Day will see a couple scattered storms as well as highs in the mid 80s. By the middle of next week, we should see our first real taste of some fall weather. We’ll keep you posted!

Scattered storms are possible much of this week.
