The Week Before Christmas Forecast

Here we are going into the final Monday before the big Christmas holiday!!

Temperatures this evening on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee are hovering in the mid 20's as we near the 7 pm hour. We'll have some locations drop into the upper teens along the Kentucky/Tennessee border in the higher elevations. Snow is still falling in the mountains in extreme eastern portions of Tennessee. Some mountainous regions of Western North Carolina expect 3-5 inches of snowfall this evening. Winds have been clocked in the mountains up to 50 m.p.h. today.

Our latest, local Cookeville, Tennessee and Cumberland Plateau Weather Forecast

We expect our temperatures to moderate throughout the week and have another good shot of rainfall later this week. The developing 'southern low' that one of the computer models was showing has all but disappeared. No big surprise on that though.

Enjoyed our trip to Mississippi this weekend. Saw very heavy rain in Oxford, MS and in Holly Springs, MS on Saturday with a strong southerly wind. This morning, the winds had turned to the north and it was COLD. We got to tour Ole Miss last evening and it is a beautiful campus. In fact, the downtown sections of Oxford were quite nice.

Watching the Cumberland weather with keen interest from FL (where tornadoes visited last evening). I bet Cookeville is beautiful with a dusting of snow.

Well I had to go about 80 miles east of here this afternoon. Cookeville had a sight dusting, Montaray had about 1/2 inch, and funny thing didn't see any in Crossville.

Re: FL tornadoes, the one which made the national news was in Pasco County, just north of the Tampa Bay area. Took the roof off the jail just after it was evacuated. Link: http://www.usatoday.com/weather/storms/tornadoes/2007-12-16-fla-tornado_N.htm?csp=34
