KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The warmer temperatures return and it looks like a few stray showers continue as well.


We’re a little cooler tonight and (apart from the mosquitoes flying in) it’s nice night to sleep with the windows open. We’ll see those clouds clear out overnight allowing temperatures to drop to near 63 degrees. Some patchy fog is possible early Thursday morning.

Highs will get back to near 87 Thursday with mostly sunny skies. Can’t rule out a stray pop-up shower or storm in the mountains but overall remaining dry.


We will see more clouds Friday with highs in the upper 80s. Isolated showers and storms are likely throughout the afternoon hours.

The 90s return this weekend, with only stray mountain rain chances. The low 90s persist into next week, with limited rain chances to help cool off a few. Scattered rain and storms start pulsing up in the afternoon by the middle of next week.
