Severe Weather Possible Tonight and Wednesday

*Hazardous Weather Outlook*

We expect a very nice day today.  Bright sunshine under a clear sky with highs in the 50's. The weather changes quickly after midnight tonight as a front approaches. We may see storms reach severe limits. Wednesday's forecast brings much of the same with chances of severe weather. After the front moves through, the severe weather goes away and is replaced with COLD temps. Snow chances appear for Wednesday night and Thursday. They reappear for Friday night and Saturday. Nothing major at this point, but it is worth mentioning.

We encountered some sleet up on Fisk Road by the high school at about 3pm today; even though the surface temp read 51, we had little dots of ice bouncing all over the place.

I live on Gibbons (right next to Fisk Rd.) and we also have sleep falling steadily for about 10 minutes...

I received several reports today of sleet falling in the Cookeville area. We sure have some odd weather from time to time!

A nice little cold layer above us is the culprit...as the south winds continue to pick up, it'll wipe out the cold layer.

Will see rapidly developing stormy conditions by morning as a warm front approaches followed by a cold front. Can't rule out some BIG T-storms...hopefully, nothing too serious.
