Slight Chance for Storms and HOT!

*Tuesday Morning Notes*
Just a tiny chance for storms today across Middle Tennessee.  Only about 10% here in Cookeville.  Those of you who see rain will get the 'garden-variety' type of pop-up thunderstorm. Otherwise, the weather word for the day is HOT! Temperatures will climb rapidly into the 80's this morning under bright, sunny skies. Air Quality Alerts are in effect for the Greater Nashville area, along with Knoxville and surrounding counties, also Chattanooga and surrounding counties.

*Rain Later This Week*
Looking over our 5-day forecast, rain chances are greatest for Wednesday through Thursday night.  I wouldn't be surprised to see heavy rainfall during that 48-hour stretch. The weekend, at this point, looks promising for nice skies and more seasonal temperatures.

Weather History for This Date
June 2nd
Softball-sized hail reported in Allons (Overton County-west of Livingston) on this date in 1998.  It is the largest known hail ever in Tennessee.
