Cold Tuesday Morning!

If you are a cold, winter weather fan..then the next 24 hours are for you!

Cold, Canadian air has invaded the Middle Tennessee area and we will struggle to reach 40° for a high today.  Tonight's low will be 20° here in Cookeville and it wouldn't surprise me to see some of our rural areas down in the upper teens by daybreak on Wednesday.  Any dry front comes through late Wednesday night dropping our temperatures down once again.  No precipitation in the forecast until at least Monday.

*Latest, Local Forecast*

On this date in 1957, an F2 tornado cuts across Fentress County (to our northeast)...only one person is injured.
