Dodging The Rain Bullet

**TENNESSEE'S HEAVY RAIN (not here!)**
Quite a bit of rain fell yesterday across the Volunteer State. Unfortunately, not much fell in the Cookeville/Putnam County area as the most that was listed was just .05"....check out the rain in my gauge from this file photo in 2007.

CoCoRaHS observers listed 37 reports of more than one inch including a 3.50" amount near Eagleville, TN in Williamson County just to the south of Nashville.

Our weather turns dry after a slight chance of rain this afternoon. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80's through Friday when another chance for rain is in our weekend forecast. These rain chances will be for mostly isolated-type thunderstorms.

So, our FWSOTD is the Nat'l Hurricane Center's web site. All kinds of information is available...check it out today! In other hurricane news,  NOAA has decided to lower the number of anticipated storms this year, but cautions public to not let their guard down.
