KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - We’re starting to see and feel some of effects of the added humidity. Rain chances will continue to ramp up as the humidity surges in late week.


A few showers managed to pop up across Upper East Tennessee Wednesday afternoon, but those have fizzled out for the night. That increased moisture also means our nights aren’t going to be as refreshing as in days past. We’ll only manage the upper 60s tonight with a bit of patchy fog.

We’ll have a few more showers and storms Thursday, but this time mainly outlining the Valley in the afternoon to evening. This leaves the lower elevations with an isolated shower or storm. The high will be around 89 degrees, but it feels 5 degrees warmer tomorrow.


Friday’s rain chances look to mainly reach the Valley to Smoky Mountains with a 40% coverage of our area. We’ll still be around 89 degrees but feel like the low to mid 90s.

A front drives into our area this weekend. This helps to create scattered storms Saturday, then on and off rain and storms at times Saturday night through Sunday.

Even past our greatest potential for rainfall this weekend, numerous spotty chances will be sprinkled about much of next week’s forecast.
