With some warmer and slightly more humid air moving in, we're knocking down the morning chill and have a little more afternoon heat.
Tonight will be mostly clear, with patchy fog. It won't be as cold tonight, as we drop to the lows in the mid 40s to low 50s. Knoxville will start Sunday with a low around 50 degrees, with a light Southeasterly breeze.
More thin-high clouds move in Sunday, so we'll have a mostly sunny to partly cloudy day. The high will be around 79 degrees. The wind is increasing a bit, with a Southeasterly breeze up to 10 miles per hour in the Valley, and gusts increasing as the day goes on in the Smokies to 30+ miles per hour. With the warmer start to the day, you'll be able to take that jacket off a little sooner!
Sunday night will be partly to mostly cloudy, with a warmer low of 61 degrees. Isolated showers will be possible into the early Monday morning hours as well.
The chance for rain and storms increases as we move through Monday, with the heaviest rain coming in from the West during the afternoon to evening hours. Monday's high will be around 69 degrees, then we'll drop to around 50 degrees Monday night, with some leftover showers. Wind speeds will increase ahead of the rain, with gusts of 35+ mph.
We'll get an average of 1 to 1.5 inches of rainfall total on into Tuesday, but the chance for rain will be backing off. Showers will become scattered to isolated as Tuesday goes on. It will also be cooler, with a high of 61 degrees.
We'll drop to the upper 30s Tuesday night, with some lingering clouds, with patchy frost possible for some.
Wednesday will be coldest day, with a high of only 56 degrees! The tops of the Smokies won't get out of the 30s, so that's why isolated snow showers are possible, mainly above 3,000 feet.
Wednesday night will be mostly clear and in the 30s again, some patchy frost is more likely.
We'll start to warm back up Thursday to Friday, but then another front will bring in showers and cooler air again for the weekend. As of right now, we'll have scattered showers Saturday and isolated showers Sunday.
Have a wonderful weekend!
