While the coming days will likely be warmer than Monday's chilly weather, in about two weeks, fall will once again bring a chill to the area according to the National Weather Service.

NWS Senior Meteorologist Terry Getz did say, however, there is the possibility over the next ninety days, fall could have warmer temperatures than usual.

"[There's] about a 35 to 40 percent probability that our temperatures would be above normal," he said.

Getz also said there was a slight chance areas to Tennessee's south, on the Gulf Coast, could see more precipitation than normal. However, he said it was not likely the Knoxville area would see the same.

"We're in an area that it could go either way, slightly above or slightly below," he said. "I would say just expect near normal precipitation."

Monday's cold weather was welcomed by some East Tennesseans.

Cindy McHaffie, an employee at Alan's Garden Center, in Talbott, said the cool weather means an increase in demand of the fall mums her garden grows.

"A little cold snap is good for business," she said.
