Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon Forecast: Cool and breezy with chance of rain early

Temperatures are expected to be cool for the marathon with spotty showers possible early

A few lingering showers are possible for the start of the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon. 

The marathon starts at 7:30 a.m. and the latest models are showing spotty showers through around 8 a.m. on Sunday.

Temperatures will be in the middle 40s at the start of the race and will warm into the lower 50s by the afternoon.

We'll start Sunday with mostly cloudy skies but gradually see the clouds break up later in the day.

Winds will be out of the north at around 10-15 mph but could gust higher at times. This will give us wind chills in the lower 40s so if you are watching the race you may want to dress warmly!

Stay tuned for updates on the forecast!
