(Picture is courtesy of Kent from TNHills.com)

Cold air with strong winds and snow has invaded the Cookeville, TN area.  It feels more like Chicago than Middle Tennessee today.  Expectations are for temperatures to rise to the 20's later this afternoon and the snow should taper off.  Overnight lows are going to be right back down near 10° once again under a clear sky.

*Latest, Local Forecast *

WARMING UP!
The great news ahead is a warming trend.  Latest forecasting models show 60's for both Saturday and Sunday.  We'll stay above normal for several days after we get through this cold spell.

No, I don't think they will...it will probably be bus driver discretion.

Boy Mike, Putnam's gotta be running low on snowdays. Sure hope the kids don't have to get their summer cut into your way. For someone who has just 4" of snow on the year you all seem to be getting the snow days! Hope all is well in Cookeville.
