KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - We’ve almost made it to the weekend, and it should be a pleasant time to get outside. We’ll have a mix of sun and clouds in the afternoons with temperatures reaching into the 80s.

WHAT TO EXPECT

For the rest of the night, we’ll see mostly clear skies with some patchy fog beginning to develop across the region as we near sunrise.

Fog will burn off quickly through the morning and that will be the start of a warmer afternoon as well. Just a few passing clouds will be with us as well.

You may need a tent if you are tailgating at the Vols game as sunshine will be in full force with just a few passing clouds throughout the game. High temperatures on Saturday will reach the mid 80s for the most part.

LOOKING AHEAD

In the “I’m All Vol Forecast”, Akron is coming to town for the 7 PM kickoff. That timing is good since it’s hot and sunny for tailgating, but the sun will set on Neyland about 40 minutes into the game, letting temperatures cool. With those few clouds, a stray shower can’t be ruled out by the end of the game.

We’ll pick up on Sunday where we left off on Saturday with just a few clouds area. Overall, Sunday should be a beautiful end to the weekend with temperatures back in the low to mid 80s.

Limited rain chances stay with us for much of the rest of the week ahead. Tuesday looks to be our best chance, but that will be limited at best. We’ll increase the temperatures leading right on to Thursday and the start of fall as we get back into the low 90s.
