Back Into The 30's Tonight (TTU Football Saturday)

Temperatures by sunrise on Saturday morning will be in the upper 30's for a number of us in eastern Middle Tennessee.  The warm days and cool nights are due to very dry air in place along with clear skies and cold, Canadian air filtering in to our region.  We were about six degrees warmer this afternoon than on Thursday.

The weekend promises a warm up for all of us in Middle Tennessee.  Upper 70's for highs on Saturday warming into the lower 80's on Sunday and again on Monday!  We'll finally see some rain along about Wednesday lasting into Friday.  Hopefully, this will be a good rainmaker.

Our Cookeville High School Cavalier football team took a drubbing from Memphis University School tonight.  The final was 42-0.  I know Coach J, his staff, and players will regroup for next week's game.  This is an excellent ball club and they'll bounce back and be ready to play.  MUS is one of the top private schools in the state and has an excellent chance to win a state title this year.

Our Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles face Eastern Kentucky tomorrow evening.  Kickoff is at 7 pm and the weather should be PERFECT for football.  Kickoff temperature should be around 72° with temperatures falling into the 60's during the game.  Tech is undefeated this year in the Ohio Valley Conference and 3-2 overall with the only two losses coming against Division 1 (or Bowl Championship Series) teams.  I encourage everyone in our area to go out and support Coach Watson Brown and the Golden Eagle football team.  Why drive over to Knoxville to watch UT when you can stay close to home and see better quality games!
