KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Pockets of heavy rainfall are possible today creating a messy commute. We are tracking some breaks in the rain before the cold front finally pushes through the region later this week.

Highs will get to about 62 degrees this afternoon with more pockets of heavy rain on and off throughout the day. It does look like we hang onto some spotty showers this evening and overnight, but overall we are getting a decent break from the heavy rain.


We are hanging onto the low to mid-60s Thursday and Friday. We’ll dry out a little bit Thursday morning to mid-day before the rain returns once again later Thursday and especially overnight with about an 80% coverage. Rain could be heavy at times Friday morning as this stalled front tries to move out of the region.

Spotty rain does continue this weekend, but it’s not as heavy. In the First Alert 8-Day Planner, we’re monitoring some extra showers at times ahead of our next cold front by the middle of next week.
