Fantastic Run of Weather Continues

As I planned my blog post today, I was struck by our morning low.  It is, currently, 49.6° here in Cookeville, TN.   Autumn is definitely here!  My 14 year-old daughter noticed the leaves beginning their gradual change as I drove her to school yesterday.

*Latest, Local Forecast *

Although we've been very dry over the last 7 days, a subtropical low over near the Carolinas does have a chance of producing rain in our area on Football Friday.  I don't think the chances are that great, but we'll take anything at this point.

I know many of you enjoy weather history.  On this date back in 1977, a tornado struck our neighboring county to the east (Cumberland County).  It was on the ground near Homestead and thankfully, caused no injuries.  Also on this date, our record high temperature was 94° way back in 1931 and our record low was 37° in 1990.  On this date in 1991, 2.66" of rain fell here!  In 2003, 8+ inches of rain fell during the month of September (typically, one of our drier months).

Have a great morning, get out and enjoy the nice weather.
