The great news is storms didn't develop yesterday, however, a cold wind blew yesterday afternoon under a cloudy sky making conditions feel quite chilly. Showers after midnight dropped .48" in the CoCoRaHS rain gauge. Speaking of CoCoRaHS , we've had several to sign-up for the volunteer program. I'd really like to see more folks get involved. If you're interested in measuring rainfall for us, go to their website or contact me
Wednesday's weather will be picture perfect. Highs in the mid 60's here in the Cookeville area under a bright, sunny sky. Rain returns Thursday afternoon and we may see some strong storms on Thursday night. I believe most of the severe weather will remain to our south.
