KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - It’s a very hot AND humid day, so that makes it feel like the triple digits at times! While a couple of storms develop today, we’re slowly building up to more at times the rest of this weekend and into the weekend.

Tuesday is another mostly sunny, hot, and humid day. Isolated rain and storms develop, especially afternoon to early evening hours. A couple of stronger storms are possible. We’ll top out around 94 degrees, but that humidity makes it feel like it’s around 100 yet again.

Tonight, a stray shower is possible, with scattered clouds and patchy fog. We’ll only drop to around 74 degrees.


Scattered rain and storms develop at times throughout the rest of the week.

We’ll see a few storms pop-up Wednesday afternoon and evening, after a hot high of 95 degrees. Storms are at a 40% coverage Thursday afternoon to evening as well, with a high of 94 degrees.

More on and off rain and storms start developing midday Friday and build up to a 60% coverage for Saturday. This takes from the low 90s to upper 80s, before rain tapers off Sunday.

In your First-Alert 8-day planner, next week starts off sunny and dry, before a build up in rain chances again.
