KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Loving or hating the chilly temperatures? Freezing temperatures return Sunday and Monday morning, but the 80s are in the First Alert 8-day planner.

WHAT TO EXPECT

We’ll see lots of sunshine this afternoon with highs getting hear 56 degrees. A Red Flag Warning is in effect from noon to 8 p.m. for the Smoky Mountains as gusty winds and dry air are in place this afternoon.

Dew points are very low and winds could gust up to 30 mph. This means any fires that develop could spread quickly. There is a burn ban out for Blount, Knox, and Sevier Counties.

LOOKING AHEAD

Temperatures start out near freezing Monday morning as well. The sunshine continues to start the new week. Highs get back to near 57 degrees.

We quickly warm up Tuesday to the upper 60s with a few spotty showers and partly cloudy skies. Highs will jump to 80 degrees by Wednesday!

Rain and storms increase overnight Wednesday into Thursday. We’re keeping an eye on the potential for a few stronger storms, but it looks like areas to the southwest of us like Texas, Mississippi, and Louisiana have the best chance for severe storms.

We’ll cool back down into the 60s by the end of the week and into the weekend. A few showers are possible next weekend.
