KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The week starts out chilly, but the afternoons are becoming more mild for a few days. Then another cold front moves in later this week, taking us back to below average temperatures.


It was a cool start to the day, with below averages temperatures for everyone. Knoxville dropped to 43 degrees, which is 5 degrees below average. Crossville hit 37, Middlesboro and Sevierville 39, and Oneida 37 degrees.

The views continue to be all clear, and that sunshine helps our comfort on an otherwise “chilly” day. Temperatures warm up to around 68 degrees, which is just a few degrees below average. There is a light breeze out of the northwest.

Tonight stays clear, with patchy fog again around the waterways. We’ll start Tuesday around 41 degrees, with a light breeze. (Seasonable low is 48 degrees for Knoxville.)


Tuesday is sunny and back to seasonable, with a high around 72 degrees. Wednesday inches up a little more, but that’s because a front is on the way.

Clouds and humidity increase on Thursday, as a cold front moves in scattered rain and storms in the afternoon.

We’ll wrap up the week with highs back in the 60s. If you’re planning some fall fun or festivals this weekend, we’re looking at stay mountain rain on Saturday and isolated rain chances Sunday.
