Colder air is really moving in today. After a week of 80s and some new record highs, it's a dramatic change!

Mostly cloudy with spotty showers throughout the day, and turning partly cloudy by this evening. Temperatures will bump up a few degrees at best, with an afternoon high of 60 degrees.

Technically today's high will come from the overnight, so your day is really in the 50s for the most part.

Partly cloudy and colder tonight, as we drop into the 30s. We'll be around 39 degrees in Knoxville and the higher elevations will be in the low to mid 30s. We could have some patches of frost Saturday morning. A few snow showers can develop at the tops of the Smokies, so hikers headed to Mt LeConte could come across some slick spots!

Saturday will be partly cloudy to start and become mostly sunny. The high will only be around 60 degrees.

Sunday will be sunny and back to a normal high of 70 degrees.

Have a great day!

Updated: 02/10/2016 - You've probably heard that no two snowflakes are the same, and Tonya wanted to know why they're different shapes.
Updated: 02/10/2016 - From camping to curiosity, you may want to be able to tell the time of day by looking at the sun.
Updated: 02/10/2016 - Ross asked me to explain why the city can be a lot warmer than the rural areas.
