Expectations...T.S. Claudette is expected to continue a NNW track into the panhandle of Florida this evening with waves 3-5 foot above normal, possible trees and signs down due to winds. Rainfall amounts will be on the order of around 3" in the heaviest spots. Some isolated locations may receive up to 5". Claudette will move quickly to the northwest into Alabama. By 7 pm on Monday evening, it should be downgraded to a depression and be in the extreme northwest part of Alabama. Expect this storm to impact our weather in Cookeville with showers and thunderstorms by Tuesday. A 36-hour track is shown below.
