WHAT TO EXPECT
We're waking up on Saturday to a warm start in the upper 60's and 70's across the area. Humidity levels are at 90% which makes it feel really sticky outside already early in the morning.
This afternoon we'll be in the low 90's for some, upper 80's for our coolest locations. SW winds 5-10 mph will help a little bit and create a light chop on area lakes. This afternoon it'll feel closer to 95 so make sure you drink plenty of water and take breaks as much as you can.
An isolated shower can't be ruled out for the afternoon.
Sunday more sunshine and isolated rain chances are back into the forecast. We're close to 93 for the afternoon, feeling closer to 100.
On your Memorial Day we'll have near record heat once again. The record is 94 set way back in 1914. We're looking at a high of 93, so just shy in Knoxville. On Monday not a real good chance for rain either.
Overnight lows stay warm and sticky for the next 8 days, in the upper 60's to near 70.
