KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Rain chances from the remnants of Hurricane Sally have left us behind. The front responsible for kicking it east will usher in a longer stretch of fall weather.


Most of the showers have wrapped up for the night, but a small chance may redevelop along the foothills and into the Smokies Friday morning. Watch out for some patchy fog, as well. The low will be right on par for this time of year in the lower 60s.

Gusty winds will remain the story on Friday even as Sally has cleared our area. Winds may top 20 to 30 mph through the afternoon hours. A stray shower cannot be ruled out, as well. Look for highs in the mid 70s just ahead of the big fall cold front.


The cold front looks to bring us cooler mornings and more refreshing afternoons. Saturday starts in the mid 50s, only to bounce back into the mid 70s in the afternoon. A stray shower is possible in the mountains.

Sunday starts in the low 50s, but is a beautiful, sunny day and a high in the mid 70s.

Now, by Monday morning, we’ll have lows in the upper 40s and then a sunny afternoon in the mid 70s.

Fall starts on Tuesday, locally the Fall Equinox is at 9:30 in the morning.
