Clouds are gradually decreasing, along with the humidity today. This leaves us with a stray shower or storm possible, especially in the foothills to the mountains. We top out around 83 degrees, which is right at average for this time of the year.

With scattered clouds and a breeze at 5 to 10 mph out of the northeast, we have choppy cooling as the drier air settles in tonight. This leaves our area ranging from closer to 50 degrees at the Tennessee, Kentucky line and closer to 60 in the Valley and South. Knoxville should start Thursday around 59 degrees.


After the below average start to Thursday, we’re just a few degrees below average with the mostly sunny day at 81 degrees.

Friday starts out in the mid to upper 50s, then we’ll have a sunny day and a high of around 82 degrees.

In your First Alert 8-Day Planner, we are tracking spotty rain and storms Saturday, but they’re more scattered overnight to Sunday morning then back to a spotty coverage Sunday afternoon. Temperatures gradually return to average next week.
