July 4th Holiday Weekend Outlook

**Weekend Outlook**
Most folks are taking Friday off. Here in Cookeville, expect a mostly sunny day with highs just over the 80° mark. It will be another beautiful day! Overnight, we expect lows, once again, to be in the lower 60's. (we were 61° this morning at daybreak.) On Saturday, rain chances increase...although, we don't think it'll be a complete washout. The best chance for rain is late Saturday night along with the overnight hours and on Sunday. After this storm system gets past us, expect a return to much warmer temperatures and higher humidity readings.
