Big Change In Temperatures This Week

The winds have picked up from the NNW as a cold front has passed through our area this morning. We may see a light shower early. Clouds will dissipate later bringing sunshine to all of the Upper Cumberland. The breezy conditions are due to a strong Canadian air mass that will be in control over the next several days. Temperatures during the daytime will struggle to reach the mid and upper 60's while nighttime lows will drop into the 40's. Can't rule out some upper 30's in some locations.  Bundle up the kids with at least a light jacket. It is the first BIG change of the Fall season.

The rain-filled pattern has finally moved out. We will end September with 14.81"...the rainiest month I've ever recorded. We are nearly 20" ahead for the year.
