Thursday Weather

We'll start the day today with numerous showers throughout Tennessee. Many locations will measure anywhere from a .25-.50 inch in rain with isolated areas seeing a little more.

Cookeville/Putnam County/Cumberland Plateau Forecast

The interesting part of the forecast is the weekend. Forecasting models are coming together and they continue to show us that we just won't have enough cold air in place to make this a big snow event here in Middle Tennessee.

If you're looking for a big snow event, I'd encourage you to travel to the Northeast where some areas will see up to a foot of snow later today. By the weekend, they'll get more as a second system will scoot quickly up the Atlantic coast.

Getting back to Upper Cumberland weather, Friday will be a nice day, but the rest of weekend will be a washout and then COLD with some snow on Sunday. Again, could see some snow on Saturday night late and into Sunday, but just not very excited about our prospects for a good, measurable snowfall event here.

At some point in the next 24 to 36 hours, the mountains of East Tennessee could have some sort of Winter Advisory issued.

Scroll down to see some posts where you can connect to other weather websites. Also, I have my favorites listed on the right side of this blog. Be sure to check them out as well.

More late today.

Too bad about the snow not making it south...It would be a great time to be in the Appalacians. Some ares may experience blizzard conditions....

I completely agree with you on that. At least some others right here in Tennessee might see some decent snow overnight Saturday and much of the day on Sunday! The interior of the Northeast will get the brunt of the storm.
