KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Lower humidity adds up to cooler mornings! We’re tracking more movement from a front to our west and a tropical system moving up the Atlantic, and how much of each can reach our area.

Join us on the WVLT First Alert Weather app for iPhone or Android, so you can stay informed on the go and in between newscasts. We share custom videos, plus you can choose to get messages from us on the latest conditions and forecast.


It’s a great day to get outside, with below average temperatures all day! It’s a mostly sunny day, so enjoy the low humidity in the shade. We’re topping out around 79 degrees, with a cool breeze out of the northwest 5 to 10 mph.

Tonight will be mostly clear and cool again, with a low of 54 degrees by Tuesday morning. We’ll see some pockets of fog develop again.


Afternoon temperatures are closer to average, with sunshine Tuesday and a high of 82 degrees.

We’ll see some extra clouds the second half of the week, and morning and afternoon temperatures are more seasonable from around 60 in the morning to low 80s in the afternoon.

This weekend comes with a stray shower or storm, as we keep an eye on a system moving up the Atlantic coast trying to send out showers towards the Smokies. Then we’re also watching a front try to move East into our area.

In your First Alert 8-Day Planner, we’re seeing a spotty rain from that front Sunday night into Monday morning and then a stray shower leftover for Monday and temperatures still in the low 80s by Monday afternoon.
