Been working on the numbers for 2007. With just a couple of days left in the year, we can confidently post these numbers! They could be a slight variation if we get more precipitation before 11:59:59 p.m. on Monday.
We've measured 37.08" of rain so far this year (including the .70 recorded today). Our average annual rainfall since 1914 for right here in Cookeville is: 54.53" which means we are 68% of normal or about 32% short. Since 1971, we've averaged 57.81" here. Taking that number, we would be over 20" short or 64% of normal.
Nashville has recorded 34.60 (before today's rainfall) and they average 48.11
December temperatures are running about 5 degrees above normal but is 5 degrees short of the all-time December record.
