Today is a BIG day for Orange country as we face off again the Perdue Boilermakers in Louisville, KY. Because this is such a high octane game and we are so close to such a rare sight, I am sure many of you plan to head to the game this afternoon, if you are not on the roads already. As I am sure the game is the ONLY things on your minds, let me quickly let you know what you can expect weather wise.
Right now temperatures are currently sitting in the lower 60's for the Knoxville area and will increase to the lower 70's. We also have beautiful blue skies over head with a few high altitude clouds in some spots. As you head to Louisville, you can expect a similar story for the remainder of the day. I would advise a light jacket or wind breaker, as it is breezy in KY currently and the low will be in the mid 50's tonight. This afternoon into the evening clouds will build ahead of moisture moving into the area tomorrow. For those staying the night in Louisville tonight, include a rain jacket or umbrella in your bag as it will be wet at times tomorrow. Expect the rain to be on the lighter side of things. Rain will likely arrive in the morning hours Friday in Louisville (between 7-10). This rain will stay mainly in Kentucky, leaving east TN with partly cloudy skies and dry conditions.
For those heading to Louisville, have a safe drive and be weary of rain showers Friday morning and scattered showers throughout the day. Go VOLS!
Forecast For Louisville:
Tonight: Mostly cloudy with a slight chance of a stray shower. Breezy with gusts up to 25 mph. Low in the mid 50's.
Tomorrow: Showers likely in the morning hours and becoming more widespread in the afternoon. High in the mid 60's.
Forecast For East TN:
Tonight: Partly cloudy with a low in the mid 40's
Tomorrow: Clouds building throughout the day leaving partly cloudy to cloudy skies. High in the low 70's.
