KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Temperatures are back to a normal chill, but winds make it feel colder today. This weekend starts off calm, but clouds and rain return for the second half of the weekend.

We are seeing a mix of sun and clouds on this Friday. The high is back to “normal” at 48 degrees, but the wind makes it feel colder at times. Stray light snow showers are still possible in the mountains where it’s stuck in the 30s.

Tonight is mostly clear at times, with scattered clouds moving around the area. This gives us plenty of time for frost to develop, with only a light breeze and a low of 28 degrees.


Saturday is mostly sunny, with a high of 50 degrees so you might want to get outside and enjoy this nice, winter day!

We’ll see clouds increase in the evening, then rain moves in again Saturday night. Sunday comes with light to moderate rain on and off throughout the entire day, and a high of 45 degrees. Scattered rain showers linger Sunday night and change to spotty snow in the higher elevations through Monday morning.

In your First Alert 8-Day Planner, we’ll get a break from rain chances Monday through Tuesday, but spotty rain is possible Tuesday ahead of a batch that moves in again Tuesday night into Wednesday, with a change to some snow showers in the higher elevations.
