Big Change Tonight Through The Weekend

You'll notice a big change in temperatures as cold front #1 slipped through over night.  Cold front #2 is expected to slide through early tomorrow and bring a reinforcement of the cool air from Canada.  Right now, low temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday nights are expected in the 43-44° range, but I think they could be even cooler than that.

We could sure use some rain as the drought continues to intensify over eastern sections of Middle Tennessee.  Unless we receive some rainfall today, our monthly total at my CoCoRaHS Station will be just 1.10", while our NWS Coop Station here in Cookeville has recorded just .31"....

(edit: 8:00 am to include US Weather Map Graphic and correct my CoCoRaHS rain station total along with adding 'on this date' information)
