Slide2

9:25 AM Monday

Good Monday morning, East Tennessee!

Get ready for some above-average temperatures this week. Highs will mostly be in the 90s, with heat index values reaching into triple digits at times. A few records may even be broken before the week is out.

Today, look for partly to mostly sunny skies with a 20% chance of thundershowers this afternoon. Highs will be in the low- to mid-90s.

Tonight, we may see a few lingering storms but skies will be partly to mostly clear. Warm temps are in store, with lows in the upper-60s to mid-70s.

Through Wednesday, we will also see a slight chance of thundershowers, mainly during the afternoon hours.

Approaching the weekend, temps will cool off just a tad. Our thunderstorm chances also increase. Severe weather is not likely, but strong storms and isolated severe storms are possible. Damaging wind, large hail, and heavy rainfall may accompany some storms.
