KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - We are staying warm Friday as a cold front arrives. This front brings us little to no rain, but a nice cool down just in time for the weekend!

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 messages from us on the latest conditions and forecast.


Tonight is mostly clear, with a light breeze, and a milder low of 50 degrees.

Friday has scattered afternoon clouds and spotty light showers at best. Highs remain near 78 degrees with gusts around 15 to 20 mph at times.


While most of us don’t see any rain from this cold front, we will all feel it this weekend! This weekend’s high temperatures are in the upper 60s. At least it will be sunny too, but the nights are prime for more patchy frost potential in the higher elevations and sheltered spots.

The Vols are on the road this weekend, so your I’m All Vol Forecast looks at a warmer LSU in Baton Rouge, LA. There are more clouds there as well, but temperatures climb from the upper 70s for that 11 AM CDT kickoff to the mid-80s.

In your First Alert 8-Day Planner, a warming trend is on track for next week. We will climb to 80 degrees mid-week, then we’re watching a cold front to bring scattered showers late week.
