Wonderful Weekend Weather

**Weekend Notes**
Sunny and warm over the next two days. High today 81° and 86° on Sunday. Shower and storm chances return by first of the work week. If you were up early this morning across Middle Tennessee, you noticed a 'chill' in the air.  Lows dropped to 51° here in Cookeville and I'll bet a few spots on the northern plateau were in the 40's.

**Weekend Plans**
We're headed to Center Hill Lake this morning to celebrate our daughter's 15th birthday. My parents are kind enough to let us use the 'Great Escape', the family houseboat. I should be able to post some pictures over at Facebook.  So, if you've not 'friended' me on Facebook, why not do that today...

Fun Weather Site of The Day
Today, I've chosen the New York WX Team website as my 'FWSOTD'. I appreciate the hard work that goes into making a blog successful. The fellow running this site is in high school and he is devoting a significant amount of time educating the public. Kudos to Tyler H!! His site is our FWSOTD.
