KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - There are only a few stray storms out there on your Thursday. While temps stay pretty ‘average’ this coming week, there are some rain chances you should know about.


The outermost bands of Nicholas continue to bring stray showers to our southern counties overnight. That leaves us with fog Thursday morning. Rain will be pretty spotty Thursday afternoon, mostly well south of 40. There’s more sunshine and warmer weather to the north of 40.

Friday brings more early day fog, and then some good sunshine for a time. Still, we can’t block Nicholas’s cloud shield for long. Scattered showers are here Friday night.


Pack the rain gear for the Vols game this weekend. Point blank: Nicholas is NOT bringing us a ton of rain, and the rain is only the outermost ‘spokes’ of the tropical system. This storm is ridiculously tough to time out for the weekend, because, well, the storm just is not moving. Still, the rain is off and on. We’re pretty seasonal despite the clouds, with highs in the middle 80s. Looks like we’ll be even warmer Sunday, not all that far from 90 degrees in the bottom of the Valley floor.

Monday brings one of the final bursts of Nicholas’s rain. It will also drop our temps.
