The high temperature Friday was 86 degrees, much warmer than the normal 81 slated for this date. We started out at 57, so nearly a 30 degree climb this afternoon as far as temperature readings go.

Saturday will be dry and warm with high temps topping out in the low to middle 80s once again. There may be a few clouds over the mountains, but overall, a quiet and mild day is in store for East Tennessee.

Sunday will start out sunny, but a weak cold front will slide through in the afternoon churning things up a bit. Look for some showers and thunderstorms to accompany the front late in the day and into the evening, but little more than a good old fashioned soaking is anticipated.

The cold front will live up to it's name as the work week ahead will be on the cool side with highs only topping out in the upper 70s while the overnight lows will dip into the middle 50s next week as well. High pressure to our north will keep the skies clear and the atmosphere quiet most of the week.

Officially Fall, Autumnal Equinox, at 10:29 p.m. local time Monday.
