Chilly Monday but a warming trend ahead
Chief Meteorologist Heather Haley says we have a few mild, dry days ahead.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The week starts off below average with a wind chill, but that doesn’t last. The winds turn and the afternoon highs climb this week, with a decent dry stretch.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Colder air dipped into our area to start the week. We’re dropped to 31 in Knoxville this morning, but it feel at least 5 degrees colder due to the wind. Crossville started out at 26, LaFollette 30, and Middlesboro 24 degrees.
It’s a beautiful, mostly sunny day, but chilly. We’re only topping out around 46 degrees, and the breeze makes it feel a couple of degrees colder at times.
Tonight comes with a few passing clouds, and a stray shower for our part of Southeastern Kentucky. We’ll start Tuesday around 30 degrees, with a light breeze out of the Southwest.
That turn of the wind kicks off a trend for warmer air to flow in from the south. We’ll top out around 58 degrees Tuesday, with a mostly sunny view.
We’ll make it back to the low 60s Wednesday and even mid 60s Thursday and Friday, with some extra clouds at times.
A week system can bring us back to the upper 50s this weekend, but only spotty rain chances at first. The better coverage of rain arrives on Monday.
