Your Forecast: Wet weather returns Tuesday

By  | 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Soak up this Monday sunshine while we have it. Tuesday's rain won't be too heavy, but it will make for a pretty gross day.

WHAT TO EXPECT

President's Day has turned out to be a fairly gorgeous day! We're enjoy plenty of sunshine with temperatures sneaking into the upper 50s and lower 60s. Skies will remain fair this evening as temperatures start to slide back through the 50s.

Overnight, the dreaded mention of rain chances returns to the forecast. A few scattered showers will move in just before sunrise as lows dip into the upper 40s. Rain chances will move through in waves for most of your Tuesday, making for a fairly gross day. Anywhere from a half inch to and inch of rainfall will be possible. Despite the clouds and rain, temperatures will be in the lower 60s.

LOOKING AHEAD

Colder air spills in starting Wednesday. Some sunshine will return by that afternoon, but temperatures will be down into the lower 50s.

Colder air pushing further south will meet some showers in our area on Thursday. This will change some rain to sleet and snow in our area, with the best chance for snow in the higher elevations Thursday. The high will only be around 40 degrees.

Friday and Saturday will look nice with the sunshine, but highs will remain cooler in the 40s and 50s. Next chance for rain returns early next week.
