Fall-Like Weekend Ahead

Expect quite a change for our weekend weather! Today, we'll see on and off clouds with a chance of some light rain. Otherwise, temperatures will sneak up into the lower 80's this afternoon. The approaching cold front should sweep through the Cookeville area by 2 pm CDT. This will lower our humidity levels and take our temperatures down 10+° from where they've been the past week. A slight shower chance for Saturday with highs only in the upper 70's. Sunday will be even cooler with highs in the middle 70's under sunny skies. Lows at night will drop all the way to the 50's by daybreak on Sunday and Monday!

One item people look for on my site is rainfall amounts. So, I've added under "Cookeville, TN Climate Data" a section called "2009 Cookeville, TN Rainfall". It is updated monthly to show what has been recorded at my CoCoRaHS station. Hope you enjoy this new feature. You can still get daily rainfall amounts by visiting the CoCoRaHS web site and looking at my daily updates. I try to report what was captured in my gauge and others in the area, if necessary

Each day, the Nashville office of the National Weather Service puts out a map of rainfall recorded across Middle Tennessee by CoCoRaHS observers. Below is an example from today, click on it for a larger view. Here is the daily link.

Weather History for This Date

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weekend!
