Cooler air settling in after storms
Chief Meteorologist Heather Haley says we’ll warm back up this week, gradually adding back in humidity.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - A cold front brought in storms and heavy rain for some, but now we’re feeling the effects through tonight. Temperatures rebound the rest of this week, ahead of increasing humidity and rain chances.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The First Alert is behind us, leaving a path of dozens of thunderstorm wind damage reports and an overall average of almost 1 inch of rain across our area.
Tuesday turns cooler and calms down! The afternoon is partly cloudy, with a high around 77 degrees, which is 10 degrees below average.
Tonight will be mostly clear, with a cool breeze, and a low of 55 degrees. It’s a brief break with a cooler, refreshing morning.
Wednesday rebounds a bit to 83 degrees with sunshine.
Thursday and Friday are back to seasonable highs, in the upper 80s. Spotty rain and storms can develop Friday, mainly in the mountains, as the humidity is climbing again.
This weekend, we’ll be in the mid-80s, with scattered storms. We’re looking at storms to develop, so the best coverage is during the heat of the day of the afternoon to evening hours.
