KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - This weekend features sunshine and warmer temperatures! I would say enjoy it because with the intense heat arriving next week, you might not want to be outside.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Temperatures start out near 66 degrees Sunday with some clouds.

Sunday is noticeably hotter, compared to previous days. We’re shooting for 89 degrees, but some could be even hotter. We have haze sunshine and dry weather with a light wind.

LOOKING AHEAD

Monday begins our string of the 90s. If things work out, and rain is really limited late week, we could readily have seven or more straight 90-degree days. The caveat here: we’re strictly talking Knoxville and the surrounding Valley. Others will be in the upper 80s, like Crossville and Middlesboro.

First up, Monday! We could tie or break the record with a high near 95 degrees. This could be the hottest day of 2022 so far! There’s a very small chance for a few sprinkles Monday with mostly sunny skies.

Tuesday and Wednesday both days have a high of 94, but it will feel quite a bit hotter! The heat index or ‘real feel’ is 100-103 degrees! Yikes! Spotty rain chances continue Tuesday and Wednesday.

Spotty to scattered rain and storms continues throughout next week. We could get a better chance for rain Thursday into Friday. That could “cool us off” to the upper 80s by next weekend.
