Rain Chances Diminish

**Stormy Thursday**
Quite a day across the Cookeville and Upper Cumberland area on Thursday as a line of storms roared through. Several trees were brought down in the town of Algood, just to my north. I've posted pictures at my Facebook site. Feel free to 'friend' me. Today, we expect a slight chance of rain...but most of the storms will stay well to our south.
