Strong Storms Possible

Our Monday weather is headlined by a SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT.  Moderate to severe storms are possible again today.  I don't think we'll see the widespread outbreak of storms like Good Friday. That being said, you'll want to keep an eye on the weather.

*Latest, Local Forecast*

Weather History for This Date
2006-17 tornadoes strike in a single county and all in one day. Muscatine County, Iowa is the unlucky county with that distinction.
1950-A cold outbreak in Nashville produces the lowest high and low for this date ever as temperatures hit just 42° for the high while the low is 27°.

Fun Weather Site of The Day
Hurricane season will be upon us soon (June) and I wanted to take a moment and feature the National Hurricane Center's website as the FWSOTD.  Wikipedia has a great entry on the history of NHC.

Cookeville's Daily Almanac

Hey Michael, for your readers who need a portable weather radio, is selling TWO for $20 + shipping. But it's today (Tuesday) only so you have to grab them. This particular one is rechargeable with a hand-crank option PLUS allows entry of the area-specific codes for weather warnings. Looked like a great deal to me, I'm a regular "Wooter" and happened to notice these.
