KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - We’re in for a beautiful stretch of weather through Sunday. Unfortunately, the new work week starts with heavy rain, prompting a First Alert Weather Day.


Now that the fog is fading, we still expect to see plenty of clouds through lunchtime. The sun will try to peek out from behind the clouds later today, pushing highs to near 50 degrees.

Once you get past Saturday’s frosty start in the 20s, the weekend as a whole looks pretty nice! Saturday will enjoy plenty of sunshine while the clouds start moving back in on Sunday. Highs will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s.


The threat of heavy rain moves in late Sunday night through Monday. Monday is a First Alert Weather Day for the possibility of ponding on the roads, runoff issues and isolated flooding. The potential for 1 to 2 inches of rain is still there with locally heavier amounts possible. Even with all the rain, temperatures will actually climb during the day. Highs may top out just shy of 60 degrees.
