Possible Strong Storms Later Today

Quick update while gobbling down some lunch. A Tornado Watch has been issued for most of Middle TN through 5 p.m. The watch includes most of South Central Kentucky also. Please remember that a WATCH means conditions are favorable for the possible development of tornadoes in and around the watch area.

As you can see on the Cookeville webcam, the sun has popped out.  This is adding FUEL to the destabilization of the atmosphere.  Please refresh my site by clicking on the header that says "Cookeville Weather Guy" above to get latest updates as well as the latest counties that have severe weather warnings.

~More later as conditions warrant.

A warm front will continue to push temperatures upward this morning here in Cookeville, TN.  We are continuing to monitor a strong cold front that will cross our area later today.  This front could set off some strong storms this afternoon.

Speaking of rain, we recorded nearly 1 inch overnight (.91") in the handy CoCoRaHS Professional Rain Gauge. CoCoRaHS is a wonderful organization and we will be recruiting volunteers during the month of March!

*Latest, Local Forecast*

After a very warm day today (temperatures in the 60's later), we'll return to winter tonight through at least next Monday.  There are several chances for snow in the forecast also.

Enjoy your Wednesday.
