KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Rain chances start to increase Tuesday before our cold front arrives Wednesday and brings us more widespread rain and storms.

A few spotty storms are possible this evening, but most look to stay dry, hot, and humid. Tonight starts out with the last couple of storms tapering off, then a partly cloudy sky letting patchy dense fog develop again. We’ll drop to around 71 degrees.

Scattered downpours and storms develop Tuesday afternoon, a 40% coverage, with a high of 89 degrees that feels like mid to upper 90s.


A front moves in Wednesday to Thursday. We’ll see more bands of rain and some storms move in, especially by Wednesday afternoon to evening and overnight hours, then gradually tapering off later Thursday. This brings about half an inch of rain to our area, with isolated higher amounts. Temperatures are knocked back to the low 80s.

We finally dry out Friday with sunshine and temperatures in the mid-80s! That humidity will start to drop as well.

In your First Alert 8-day planner, expect sunshine, lower humidity, and dry conditions for the weekend. The humidity will be low so you’ll notice a difference for sure! Also, we could see lows in the lower 60s!
