KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - What a gorgeous set of days we’re coming out of - and more are rolling in this weekend.

Storms are back by Tuesday. From there, we’re on to the 80s and some ‘summery’ afternoon storms.

WHAT TO EXPECT

There is one last cold night ahead. Frost is unlikely and we have lots of sun Saturday. That will supercharge warmth to similar levels to what we had Friday.

Sunshine, light winds and 70s for the final rounds at Holston Hills.

Sunday morning starts off at normal, thanks to a blanket of clouds. We’ll go from 54 degrees in the morning to 73 degrees in the afternoon, and the all day mostly cloudy view helps to create isolated rain chances at times from beginning to end.

Back to 80 degrees on Monday, but still mostly cloudy most of the day. While rain and storms are isolated, the wind is gusty at times to 20+ mph, because more rain and storms are on the way.

Monday night through Wednesday morning, we will have scattered rain and storms move through at times. It looks to taper off Wednesday and stay spotty Thursday, but a few more pop-ups are possible by Friday afternoon. We’ll still with warmer temperatures next week!
