KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The cold clouds linger Friday, keeping temperatures at and below freezing area-wide. This weekend comes with a big improvement in views, and gradually is more comfortable.


We’re stuck under the clouds today, and seeing some flurries fly at times. We’re only topping out around 30 degrees, with a Northeasterly breeze 5 to 10 mph.

Tonight becomes partly cloudy, and the wind backs off a bit. This allows for some frost to spread out, with a low of 19 degrees by the morning.

Saturday starts out really cold, but it’s a mostly sunny day with occasional extra clouds. We warm to around 39 degrees, which is still 10 degrees below average.


Sunday recovers from a morning in the mid 20s, to a high of 42 degrees. It’s also a mostly sunny day, but occasionally partly cloudy views.

Monday jumps to a seasonable high of 48 degrees, with more clouds at times, but still the most comfortable in this stretch.

We’ve increased the coverage for Tuesday’s rain to snow to 60%, which looks like mostly rain and spotty higher elevation snow during the day, then scattered snow showers in the evening. We’ll see a few snow showers Tuesday night become spotty by Wednesday morning.

Another system ends your First Alert 8-Day Planner with scattered rain to snow arriving again Friday.
