More mild today, with more warmth ahead

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The warm-up starts today! Well, we’re at least back normal, then warmer afternoons ahead. We’ll see some extra clouds and feel more wind at times, before a cold front’s rain returns to our area.
WHAT TO EXPECT
It’s a mostly sunny day, and a nice climb in temperatures back to seasonable. Knoxville tops out around 58 degrees, with a Southwesterly breeze up to 10 mph and occasionally gusts up to 20 mph.
Tonight comes with increasing clouds, and a stray shower is possible. We’ll start Wednesday at a seasonable low of 35 degrees.
Clouds continue to increase now for Wednesday, as a system just to our north dips enough to give our area a mostly cloudy view. This could also create a spotty shower, but the dry air here limits most of the showers. It will still be a little warmer, topping out around 62 degrees, with gusts around 20 mph at times.
Thursday cranks up to 66 degrees, with a mostly sunny view, and the warm gusts increase to around 25 mph at times. Friday is also in the upper 60s, with a few more clouds at times.
We’re still looking at spotty showers this weekend, but more clouds on Saturday and a mild high of 61 degrees. We’ll take a small dip to the 50s on Sunday, but more sunshine before a cold front approaches.
As of now, scattered showers move in Sunday night through Monday. We’re monitoring the exact timing, as this could result in a drop in temperatures on Monday.
