There’s beautiful bluebird skies overheard for your Sunday.

Sunday morning, we wake up to the middle to upper 50s, with 57 in Knoxville. From there it’s all about the sunshine, low humidity, and totally dry weather. We have a normal-enough high of 85 degrees. That is down two degrees from prior forecasts.

Monday begins our next string of 90s; this version should go well beyond five days. Monday’s high is 92 in Knoxville, with upper 80s for much the rest of the region. We’re totally dry Monday and Tuesday. Tuesday: well, check out the numbers below in the 8-day.


We move to the WVLT First Alert Weather Day not for storms, but for pure heat. That’s the hottest day since Knoxville’s hottest EVER, July 1, 2012. Seriously! There’s hazy sunshine and poorer air quality. In fact, there’s very little rain out there. Still, the mostly clear sky gives you a better chance to see the five planets aligned in the early morning sky. More on the details for that in the First Alert Weather App.

The 90s show no signs of stopping even well past the end of the 8-day.
