We're continuing to see the same weather pattern we've been in for the past several days as we head into the weekend.

Showers and storms that hit East Tennessee on Friday afternoon are clearing out as the evening goes on and things should calm down for the remainder of the night. Overnight lows will be right around 70 degrees for Friday night.

Saturday, we're waking up to cloudy skies once again, and much like we've seen happening for the past week or so, showers and storms will likely flare up as we go into the afternoon hours of your Saturday. It'll be hard to pinpoint exactly where these showers will show up, so it will probably be in your best interest to make sure to grab the umbrella, just in case you're in the path of one of them!

Saturday's forecast includes a high of 88 degrees, higher elevations could be slightly cooler.

Highs for Saturday:

Knoxville 88°
Maryville 89°
Oak Ridge 88°
Oneida 85°
Crossville 84°
Middlesboro, KY 86°
LaFollette 86°
Tazewell 85°
Morristown 87°
Rutledge 87°
Madisonville 89°
Sevierville 88°
Gatlinburg 86°

Tonight will be mostly cloudy, with isolated showers and storms, and a low of 70 degrees.

This weekend comes with several showers and storms, 40% chance, and highs in the upper 80s.

We'll get back to highs in the 90s, humid, with a little more sunshine, as the showers and storms become more isolated next week.

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!
