Another warm start to East Tennessee and that will continue now and through the weekend. High pressure will continue to shift east providing warm air to the area. A diminishing and dry cold front looks to cross Thursday night, which could stall highs Friday afternoon, otherwise expect an on-going upward trend through Sunday.
Keeping highs in mind, let's further look at records. Our best potential will be Sunday afternoon, as the record in Knoxville currently sits at 79 degrees. If we get enough sunshine during the morning, along with the strong southerly surge, we could see this happen. Nonetheless, it puts in mind how warm things are when comparing to records for the day. Longer range, a cold front will bring better rainfall Monday, cooling things down Tuesday, and making a return for highs in the 50s.
Take advantage of the warmth and sunshine today and tomorrow with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s. Cloud cover will increase through Friday and Saturday leading to a few showers by the end of the weekend, with widespread activity by Monday.
