KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Cooler air is here for a couple of days, but our nice weather lasts until winds and rain spread out across the Southeast from Hurricane Ian.

Sunshine is here for your Tuesday, and the cooler air sticks around. We’re topping out around 72 degrees, which is 7 degrees below average. There is a chilly breeze out of the northwest, 5 to 10 mph.

Tonight is another colder one, as we drop to around 45 degrees, which is more than 10 degrees below average! The sky stays clear, so some fog can develop.


Highs on Wednesday only warm into the upper 60′s, so you might keep that jacket around. It’s at least another sunny day, but there is a chilly breeze out of the northeast.

As of now, the best chance of rain moves in Friday night through Saturday.
