Your Forecast: A WVLT WEATHER ALERT DAY starts early Tuesday morning
Tonight will be cloudy, with scattered showers and a low of 51 degrees. That low will be earlier in the night, as warmer air, increasing winds, and rain approach by Tuesday morning.
Tuesday starts off with a line of rain and storms approaching from the West. We'll have batches of moderate to heavy rain, so a FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect until Tuesday evening for Knoxville to Northeast Tennessee and Southeastern Kentucky. Isolated storms are possible, and gusts will reach 30 to 40 miles per hour at times. We'll warm to the low 60s by midday and then be back in the upper 50s for the afternoon hours as we're left with scattered showers.
