Nice Rainfall On Friday

We've received over an inch of rain today between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm here in Cookeville, Tennessee.  Exactly 1.02" was measured.   If you'll visit the CoCoRaHS site, you can see the rainfall that fell in your particular area.

Shower chances have diminished greatly for the rest of tonight and skies will slowly clear as we head toward daybreak.  Saturday should be sunny with highs fighting to reach 60°.  Saturday night will be clear and cold with lows in the 30's but we rebound nicely on Sunday with bright, sunny skies and temperatures near 70°.

*Latest, Local Forecast *

Don't get used to the warm weather as another front invades the Middle Tennessee area on Sunday night and Monday.  Temperatures will struggle to reach the 50's on both Monday and Tuesday afternoons with lows in the lower 30's.  Should be a crisp evening for Monday Night Football in Nashville!  GO TITANS...whip those Indianapolis Colts!

....Just for your reference....
