Warm for two more days, ahead of rain and a big cool down
Chief Meteorologist Heather Haley is tracking the cold front to end the week.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Thursday and Friday continue on this warm trend. For reference, the seasonable temperatures are lows around 50 degrees and highs around 73 degrees. We are closer to 10 degrees above average for a little longer! A cold front moves in with rain and some storms Friday night, and sets up a week that’s actually below average.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Enjoy another day in the low 80s, with a mix of sun and clouds. It’s really a mild day, with a light breeze as well.
Tonight will be mostly cloudy at times, with a low around 63 degrees. Patchy fog will develop again in this high humidity.
Friday then warms to around 84 degrees, with more afternoon sunshine. The passing clouds and increasing humidity can create a stray shower or storm.
We’ve been talking about that cold front since before it was in the 8-day forecast, and it’s still on track for Friday night into Saturday. It times out for rain and isolated storms overnight Friday to the early Saturday morning hours. We’ll have scattered rain becoming spotty by midday to the early afternoon, with the sky clearing. Saturday starts out with a low of 57 degrees closer to 9 AM, then only warms to around 65 degrees!
Your I’m All Vol forecast is a chilly evening game! It will be mostly clear, with temperatures cooling from the upper 50s at the start of the game, to around 50 degrees by the end. Since it’s a checkerboard Neyland game, your white or orange should be some warm layers.
We’ll even drop to the mid 40s by Sunday morning, and then be in the mid 60s for a high Sunday afternoon too.
