**Friday Morning Notes**
Chilly with cloudy skies and some lingering fog this morning across Cookeville. Temperatures are in the 50's to start.  We do expect to see highs in the 70's later today along with clearing skies. Expect lower 80's for Saturday and upper 80's by Sunday.

**Rain?? **
We only measured .04" here in Cookeville since from 7 a.m. Thursday to 7 a.m. today. The expectations were for a whole lot more. I checked around us and found a 3.24" & 2.78" amount from Dunlap, also waiting  on amounts to come from Spencer, where they had flood warnings yesterday along with a mudslide and blocked roads due to flooding. Most of the heaviest rains were to our south and east.  Listing of Storm Reports from National Weather Service

Crossville, TN set a rain record for yesterday with 2.15"..that breaks the old June 4th record of 1.87" set back in 1998.
