KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - We have a quiet few days, with colder nights and nice afternoons. A weak cold front moves through Friday, and while most won’t see any rain, we will all feel the effects this weekend!

It’s a beautiful sunny day, with a light cool breeze. We’re topping out at 72 degrees, which is a few degrees below average.

Tonight is colder though, as we drop to 42 degrees, which is more than 10 degrees below average. With the higher elevations in the upper 30s, patchy frost is possible in these areas.


Wednesday’s sunshine helps us back to the low 70s again, then back to the mid 40s by Thursday morning. Thursday warms up more, with a high of 78 degrees and still mostly sunny.

The next cold front moves in Friday, but we are only seeing spotty rain at best across our area. That cold front does push high temperatures in the 60s this weekend. At least it will be sunny too, but the nights are prime for more patchy frost potential in the higher elevations and sheltered spots.

In your First Alert 8-Day Planner, temperatures rebound to the low 70s next Monday and continue to warm next week.
