KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Some clouds and spotty rain chances stick around for your Easter Sunday, but most of us do stay dry. We have a better chance for rain and a few rumbles of thunder overnight Sunday into Monday. A WVLT First Alert Weather Day is in effect Monday morning as pockets of heavy rain arrive during the morning commute.

Temperatures will start out near 46 degrees early Sunday morning. By the time you are heading to church, we’ll be in the 50s with some sunshine. The kids will need the sweater as you are heading to church for Easter Sunday!

Temperatures will be in the lower 60s around noon and warm up to around 68 degrees for the high later Sunday afternoon. That mixture of sun and clouds continue throughout the day with more clouds by the afternoon. Spotty rain chances are possible by the later afternoon hours, mainly around 4 p.m. More rain arrives after midnight with a few rumbles of thunder possible by Monday morning.


Our WVLT First Alert Weather Day goes into effect around 5 a.m. Monday morning and continues through the morning commute. Pockets of heavy rain arrive which will likely lead to some slowdowns on the highway. The main concerns with this First Alert Weather Day are ponding water on the roadways and reduced visibility. We have the potential of some spotty high mountain snow on Monday. It’s not something most of us should worry about - it’s more of a talker.

Tuesday and Wednesday morning: If you are a gardener or a farmer you should prepare for patchy frost on both days. A hard or killing freeze it’s not likely. Both days we’ll see sunshine with highs only near 60 Tuesday but warming quickly to the lower 70s by Wednesday afternoon.

There’s a small bag of showers coming in on Thursday. Right now it doesn’t look too impactful. The 80s look to return by the end of the week and into next weekend!
