Weekend Storms???

The ingredients are beginning to come together for what could be an outbreak of severe weather here in the Tennessee Valley. We have a 15 to 30 percent chance for severe weather. Locations to our South and West have a more significant chances.

After a cold night, with lows in the middle and upper 20's, we will warm-up quickly and top out in the 60's tomorrow. A strong southerly flow with affect our weather. Winds could gust as high as 35 mph here in the Upper Cumberland. Daytime heating of the atmosphere will cause the if you see temperature push the upper 60's to near 70...we will be under the gun for the bad weather.

After frontal passage on Sunday, we could (and I stress a big 'could') see some backside snow flurries late on Sunday night! Typical Tennessee weather...going from the upper 60's to snow in about 24 hours!

Our workweek ahead appears to be stable with highs in the 50's and lows in the 30's.

Enjoy this wonderful sunset picture taken in downtown Cookeville!
