It’s a beautiful, sunny day! The average high for Knoxville this time of the year is 66 degrees, so today’s high of 63 is actually pretty “normal”. There is a cool breeze out of the north 5 to 10 mph, so it can make you feel cooler if you’re in the shade.

We have another frosty cold night, with a low of 36 by Thursday morning.


The sunshine continues Thursday, and is slight warmer at 67 degrees.

Scattered rain and isolated storms arrive Friday morning, and we’ll see more hit or miss rain throughout the day, at a 40% coverage. This puts our high closer to 69 degrees, with gusts around 20 mph.

Friday night, gusts increase to around 40 mph with the main line of storms. We’re monitoring for some stronger storms and ongoing gusts of 50 mph into Saturday.
