*GREAT WEATHER ALERT*
If you liked Monday, you'll love Tuesday. Expect temperatures to 'struggle' up to 80° today across Cookeville and the Highland Rim area of Tennessee. Tonight's lows are expected to be around 59° under clear skies. In case you're wondering, last night's low was 62° here in Cookeville. The 7-day forecast reveals a warming trend toward the July 4th weekend and a return of higher humidity levels. Typical for this time of year.
By the way, yesterday's high of 86° was the 14th straight day of highs of 86 or above here in Cookeville. Lower humidity levels made Monday's temperatures feel much better than in the last couple of weeks. Expect this string to end today. Even with this run of hot weather, we are only 1.6° ahead of normal for June.
