Yesterday's post (Flooding Possible) was #1200 for this weather blog. Who would have thought that you all would read this faithfully, who would have thought you all would e-mail for specific forecasts for certain places..who would have thought I would have gotten the text messages, phone calls, Facebook messages, etc...who would have thought I would be getting paid to write about weather for a National website. Who would have thought I'd be coordinating a very important program for the Cookeville/Putnam County area. A very big thank-you to ALL of you.
**RAIN, RAIN, and MORE RAIN**
Rain is falling here in Cookeville as I write this. We've recorded 2.64" since rain began on Friday. Typically, for all of May, we receive 4.71". Heavy rain (according to radar) is streaming into our area along a warm front which is moving back to the north. This front will stall over our area and impulses will ride up the stationary front giving us chances for heavy rain the rest of today and tonight.
