KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - We’re slowly seeing and feeling some changes ahead of a front, with some more clouds and humidity at times, then scattered rain and storms drag through at times over a couple of days.

We have a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day, with a stray shower possible in the higher elevations. We’re topping out at 82 degrees, with a light breeze out of the northeast.

Tonight comes with scattered clouds and areas of fog, and a low of 59 degrees.


Tuesday looks to stay mostly sunny for part of the day, then more partly cloudy in the afternoon to evening when stray rain and storms develop in our higher elevations and become spotty in coverage Tuesday night with the increasing humidity. We’ll warm to around 86 degrees on Tuesday, with a light breeze.

We’ll be in the upper 70s to around 80 Wednesday and Thursday, when we see more scattered rain and storms at times. It looks to be an even 40% coverage throughout the day Wednesday, but spottier in the Valley on Thursday with more scattered rain outlining the Valley. We’ll also have a little more of a breeze on Wednesday, with some gusts around 20 mph.

In your First Alert 8-Day Planner, the humidity is gradually decreasing Friday into the weekend. This takes us from spotty rain and storms Friday, to a stray mountaintop shower on Saturday. We’ll have mild mornings and sunny afternoons for the weekend into early next week!
