KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Friday is the first full day of Fall, and it feels like it! Now, this weekend does come with some changing views and some rain chances at times.

Join us on the WVLT First Alert Weather app for iPhone or Android, so you can stay informed on the go and in between newscasts. We share custom videos, plus you can choose to get message from us on the latest conditions and forecast.


This morning made it down to the low 40s to low 50s for most! Knoxville and Oak Ridge dropped to 51, meanwhile it was 48 in Sevierville, and 44 in Middlesboro.

We’ll stick with below average temperatures all day, as we top out around 75 degrees. It’s a sunny day, with very low humidity. The breeze out of the northeast, 5 to 10 mph, continues.

Tonight does become mostly cloudy, with spotty rain developing and moving through. Temperatures range from mid to upper 50s.


Those extra clouds are in and out throughout the day Saturday. This leaves the day overall partly cloudy, with some more afternoon sunshine and a high of 82 degrees. A stray shower is possible in the morning and then again in the late evening. The I’m All Vol forecast is right in the middle of the day, with more sun at times. We actually hit the high right at kickoff, so if you’re tailgating or in Neyland, at least it will cool off when we’re celebrating (hopefully) a win over Florida!

The clouds bring scattered rain Saturday night, with an isolated storm possible. A cold front is on the way, and as of now Sunday is looking to split up on the weather. Meaning, we’ll starting with more clouds and a few showers leftover, then see some partly cloudy views, but back to more evening clouds and a few showers and isolated storms Sunday evening into the early night hours. We’ll be around 80 degrees for a high Sunday.

The few showers and storms exit by Monday morning, and leave the First Alert 8-Day Planner in the 70s with sunshine for several days. We are keeping an eye on the tropics for you, as a system could church across the southeast late next week, and send more clouds and potential some rain our way.
