KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The mild temperatures continue this weekend with more clouds as a cold front arrives early next week.


Clouds move into the area for the overnight hours. We eventually fall to the upper 40s tonight - so it’s really mild for early day plans.

Were you seeing what you thought were UFOs or even Santa debuting the sleigh Friday night? This was actually the Starklink train of satellites. No worry! By the way, they are back in view at 6:22 p.m. Saturday.

Saturday comes with more passing clouds and a high in the low 60s. A stray shower is possible, mainly along our hills and mountains.


Sunday is a little warmer, at 67 degrees, with more afternoon to evening clouds and a spotty shower possible ahead of the cold front.

Monday’s temperatures are upside down, as a cold front moves in. Showers move in overnight with our high being throughout the overnight hours. We’ll start out near 58 degrees Monday morning. Rain becomes spotty into Monday, with spotty mountain snow, and temperatures drop to the mid-40s by the afternoon. They’ll keep cooling to a low of 28 degrees by Tuesday morning.

We’re tracking another round of rain to move in by the middle of the week, keeping the cooler temperatures around.
