Looking live over Knoxville (~1:02pm), clear skies and a few stray clouds can be seen. Temperatures are currently around 80 and will increase a few more notches to top out in the mid 80s.
A cold front will make its way east-southeast, bringing increased cloud cover tonight and a chance for very isolated rain tomorrow. Given the lack of moisture with this system, it may be hard to see any showers at all. The best opportunities will be in the higher elevations. Pressing forward, high pressure fills back in from our west, bringing sunshine and cooler temperatures post-front.
The graphic below shows temperature anomalies. This means looking at forecasted temperatures and comparing them to climatological norms. As you can see, the entire state will be running cooler than average for Thursday. Near to slightly below average temperatures can be expected tomorrow and through the weekend, before things warm back up towards that 90 mark.
That will wrap it up for today, go out and enjoy the sunshine and average temperatures. A few isolated showers are possible tomorrow, so it wouldn't hurt to bring an umbrella just in case.
