KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Get the rain gear out and keep it handy over the next several days as on and off showers and storms continue not only throughout the weekend but much into next week.


Patchy-dense fog is possible early Sunday morning with temperatures starting out near 67 degrees. We could see some light showers early, but most of the scattered downpours and storms arrive Sunday afternoon. It looks like another gloomy day with mostly cloudy skies. Highs are expected to get near 81 degrees.


As we move into next week, humidity, clouds, and, yes, rain from Nicholas will linger for the first half of the week. Temperatures will hover in the low 80s during the day and mid-60s at night through Wednesday morning.

On Wednesday, which coincidentally is also the first day of Fall, the season will deliver relief from summer’s heat in a big way. A strong cold front moves through. After more widespread rain ahead of the front, a refreshing air mass featuring cooler temperatures and drier air slides into our area. We’re forecasting sunny skies with highs in the 70s during the day, and clear skies with lows in the lower 50s at night.
