KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Those showers become more spotty throughout the afternoon hours. We’ll get a slight break Thursday before a cold front brings more rain by Friday.


Showers become spotty this afternoon with the gloomy skies sticking around. We could see some peeks of sunshine but overall expect those mostly cloudy skies. Highs will get near 61 degrees. Spotty showers continue tonight as well.


St. Patrick’s Day looks wonderful! There are a couple of morning showers way up on the Smoky Mountain peaks. We’ll still hang onto that mixture of sun and clouds throughout the day with a high near 69 degrees. Thursday is our day of ‘equal time,’ meaning nearly identical daylight and night-time. At our latitude, this is NOT the spring equinox!

Rain is still on the way Friday, but it is mostly in the afternoon and evening. This may linger through dawn Saturday. Saturday is colder behind the front. We actually drop to near average for this time of year.

Sunday is the first day of spring! Temperatures will top out near 64 degrees with lots of sunshine.

We get warmer with more sunshine Monday and Tuesday of next week. We’ll keep an eye on next Wednesday’s potentially stormy system.
