KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Today is the steamiest day in this current weather pattern, but it’s also the driest for our area. We’re tracking some developing storms at times for the next several days, then more organized bands of rain for next week.

It is a mostly sunny and hot, humid day. We’re topping out at 92 degrees, but the humidity continues to make it feel about 7 degrees warmer. An isolated downpour or storm can develop, especially in the late afternoon to evening. It’s only a 20% coverage of our area, but still where it rains it pours.

Tonight continues to see scattered clouds, with a stray shower or storm possible and then some morning fog. The low is around 70 degrees.


While storm chances go up, at least it’s up and down. Meaning, it’s not rainy all day.

Thursday and Friday come with a 40% coverage, peaking in the afternoon to evening hours. We’re still in the upper 80s for highs, and feeling hotter.

This weekend looks like a few storms developing outlining the Valley and spotty in the lower elevations Saturday, then scattered again Sunday afternoon to evening. That scattered afternoon to evening development continues Monday.

In your First Alert 8-Day Planner, we’re monitoring bands of rain and storms that move in Tuesday afternoon and continue at times on into Wednesday. This pushes the heat back to low to mid 80s.
