Good Morning!  What a gorgeous sunrise in Tennessee!
Most of us start this Thanksgiving-eve morning in the 20's across Middle Tennessee.  Across our entire state, temperatures range from 20° this morning in the Tri-Cities (located in extreme east TN) to 42° in Memphis on the Mississippi River.  Today will be nice and sunny with highs mainly in the lower 50's for the Cookeville area.
The map above shows quiet weather for us for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Our warmest day will be Thursday where we expect temperatures to reach in to the upper 50's.  Rain enters our picture for Sunday and we will, once again, cool down.  Highs on Sunday only make it to the lower 40's.   One quick note on the map above, notice Southern California has a low pressure system with an associated front coming on shore.  That show extinguish any of the remaining wildfires.

Weather Site of The Day
Did you know that 24 people have been killed and more than 300 injured this year by lightning strikes in the U.S.? is a site dedicated to educating the public about this weather danger.  I'd like to thank Michael Utley (a strike victim himself) for putting this informative site in place.  Take some time to visit.

How Not To Measure Temperature #76  is available for your reading pleasure at 'Watts Up With That'!

Finally, in yesterday's post, I promised you all a look at where we stand in 2008 with precipitation.  I haven't forgotten and will get that work posted today!
