KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Temperatures continue to warm up this week, so you might want to get outside and maybe do some outdoor decorating ahead of rain arriving late Thanksgiving.

A few clouds begin to work their way in at times today, especially through midday, with a stray shower possible, mainly along the South Valley to the mountains. Then we’ll get back to a mostly sunny view, and a high of 57 degrees, which is right at normal! Scattered clouds return this evening, and a stray shower is possible in the mountains.

We’re back to a clear sky tonight, and a frosty cold low of 29 degrees.


The warming trend continues for the next two days. Wednesday is a mostly sunny day, with a high of 63 degrees.

Thanksgiving day starts out in the mid 30s, with a mostly clear to partly cloudy view. But, we’re still on the warmer side with a high of 65 degrees. A spotty rain shower is possible in the late afternoon to evening, with more rain moving in Thursday night into Friday. We’re still seeing a 60% coverage through Friday morning, then more scattered rain midday to spotty by Friday afternoon.

In your First Alert 8-Day Planner, scattered rain returns again Saturday afternoon, with a high in the low 50s. The timing is now more showers Saturday night, with only a stray mountaintop snow shower possible through Sunday morning. We’ll keep you updated on the latest timing on WVLT News! (Keep in mind, rain is like plugging in your destination into a GPS. As speed changes, the arrival time changes too!)
