KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) – The clouds are starting to dissolve giving us more sunshine which allows for more warming. Rain probabilities are isolated, but our differences in elevation can cause an isolated rain shower or storm to appear. This trend is making the highs soar into the 90s next week!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Mostly cloudy this morning, with temperatures between the mid-50s and around 60 degrees for a low. Patchy showers develop and try to move through, but mainly make it to the plateau and the southern valley.
Clouds linger, but break up! It is mostly cloudy to partly cloudy today, with a stray shower or storm possible this afternoon. We could develop a very summer storm in the Smokies and slide down into the valley. Around Blount to Sevier County is the trend for this pop up today. We warm up to about 82 degrees, which brings us about on average.
Tonight remains partly cloudy, with a light breeze and a low of 59 degrees.
Thursday clears up further, so that we start partly cloudy and mostly sunny. The high will be around 86 degrees with a light breeze.
Friday is mostly sunny, with slightly lower humidity and a warm high of 86 degrees.
This weekend continues to climb to almost 90 degrees into the upper 80s! Now we have some passing clouds on Saturday, which can lead to rain or storm, especially in the mountains. Sunday looks like more sunshine, but we’re still watching these clouds move around the area under our building heat.
We forecast a heat wave, 3 or more days in a row of 90 degrees or more, starting on Monday. Beyond the 8-day forecast, we don’t have a better chance of rain until the end of next week.
