KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - An isolated sprinkle can’t be ruled out this afternoon, but just expect a mix of sun and clouds for the most part.


Overall, we’ll have partly sunny skies as we go through the day. A stray rain drop is possible, but we’re limited in coverage to about 10-20%. So most of us will stay dry. Temperatures will stay in the mid to upper 70s as we go into the afternoon.

Highs on Tuesday will be near 79 in Knoxville to 74 in Crossville.

Rainfall will only bring about .01″ to .02″ through the day.

Tonight we’ll have a mix of clouds and stars with patches of fog and temperatures near 61 to start Wednesday.


We could see a few sprinkles on Wednesday as well with partly cloudy skies. Highs will remain in the lower 80s throughout the week.

A cold front looks to push in late Friday night into Saturday morning. This front will bring us some light to moderate showers and a big cool down. Right now it looks like this front should push out of here just in time for the Vols Saturday evening. Temperatures will go from the 80s to the upper 60s for highs.
