KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The humidity is back and so are the rain chances. We’re tracking up and down, spotty to scattered coverage, this week.

A weak cold front moving through to start the week. Isolated rain showers are developing throughout the day today, with spotty storms possible in the afternoon to evening hours. It’s a 20% coverage all day, but the potential for a pop-up to become heavier comes with that afternoon heat. We’re topping out around 87 degrees, but it feels about 4 degrees warmer.

Tonight becomes partly cloudy, with the last of the showers fading away and patchy fog developing. The low is around 66 degrees.


Scattered clouds continue Tuesday, with a stray afternoon to evening shower or storm possible, at only a 10% coverage of our area. We’ll have a light, northerly breeze and a high of 85 degrees.

Then Wednesday is around 80 degrees, with a few afternoon to evening rain and storms.

It’s back to spotty rain and storms Thursday, to only pulse back up to scattered in your First Alert 8-day planner Friday into the weekend.
