A chilly start to the morning with lows in the middle to upper 20s, but there is going to be a nice warm up as we go through the day. Highs are expected to move into the upper fifties this afternoon with some high clouds floating overhead.

Increasing cloud cover overnight will help keep the mercury in the thermometer from dropping much below forty. There is a slight chance for us to see some rain before sunrise Sunday, but the bulk of the rain shower activity will be during the day. We may even hear the rumble of thunder late in the afternoon, but that is a very slight chance. High temps will get near or slightly above 60 as well. The most noticeable feature on Sunday will be the wind, especially in the Foothills and Smoky Mountains. A high wind watch is in place for Sunday afternoon until Monday morning for the Foothills counties. Winds sustained at 20 - 30 mph will be common tomorrow afternoon in far east Tennessee.

Monday the rain and winds relax by mid morning and temps rise above sixty.
