Sunday Afternoon Update

We're looking at the radar and gathering reports from various sources. At 2:15 pm, precipitation is falling as sleet in Macon County, TN near the Kentucky border.

From the National Weather Service at 2:12 pm

.NOW...ACROSS THE EASTERN HALF OF THE MID STATE ISOLATED AREAS OF VERY LIGHT RAIN CONTINUE TO MOVE EASTWARD. MOST OF THE ACTIVITY DETECTED ON NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE RADAR WAS RAIN ALOFT...VIRGA...AND NOT REACHING THE GROUND. MOST LOCATIONS THAT RECEIVED RAIN WILL ONLY RECORD A TRACE AMOUNT...WITH A FEW LOCATIONS RECEIVING A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH.

We'll continue to watch as the precipitation moves eastward into the higher elevations of the Highland Rim here in Cookeville and onto the Cumberland Plateau. The 700 foot elevation difference between Cookeville and Monterey could be enough to see a difference in what is falling from the sky.
