KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Temperatures will be well above the average high in the low 70s this week before rain chances arrive to close it out.


Showers from a stalled front will stay just to our northwest. Skies will gradually clear overnight, but a bit of patchy fog may be possible. Lows will start off around 50 degrees.

A warming trend is underway through the middle of the week.

Tuesday is still partly cloudy at times, with a high around 78 degrees. We’ll see more sunshine Wednesday, with a high of 80 degrees.

Temperatures are well above average but records stay safe.

Thursday’s high will also be around 80 degrees, but scattered clouds and a stray shower return.

The next chance for rain for our area as a whole comes Friday night through Saturday. We’ll build the clouds for a spotty chance for rain on Friday and more scattered rain chances Friday night through Saturday. That should be enough to knock temperatures down into the low to mid 70s, which is closer to average.

We’ll keep you updated on the latest forecast where you live on WVLT News!

Temperatures soar before the next rain chance.
