Stormy Thursday evening before a cooler & quieter weekend
Meteorologist Ben Cathey tracks a nice weekend as rain rolls back in early next week.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Rain should taper off after 1:00 a.m. early Friday. Then it’s on to fog!
This cold front really knocks down our temperatures Friday and Saturday. Talk about great windows-open weather! A more active rain pattern rolls back in next Tuesday and Wednesday.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Rain is not done. Showers will try to re-form along the actual cold front later this evening. A couple other storms try to survive until dawn in the south Valley.
Fog is here for many, especially Hamblen, Cocke, and other nearby counties where it rained heavily. Friday is pretty nice and much cooler. There’s little humidity to speak of but there’s a fair amount of cloud-cover.
Friday night into early Saturday is a great chance to shut off the A/C and open the windows. This is the coolest morning in the extended forecast. Saturday is gorgeous, with some high clouds. We’re totally dry!
How about Sunday? There is more of those high clouds. We have just a small chance of late-day storms, mostly way up in the Smokies.
Next week starts calm enough, with heat building on a partially cloud-covered Monday. Most are in the middle 80s by late afternoon Monday. There’s a small chance of storms in our eastern counties later Monday afternoon and evening.
Emerging from the Midwest, rain is back on an active two-day-long pattern. That’s Tuesday and into Wednesday. Thursday and Friday should dry out a little bit.
