**RAIN, RAIN, and MORE RAIN**
Expect rain chances everyday this week. I believe we'll get through most of today and tonight without seeing much rain here in the Cookeville area. The area of rain is moving in from the southwest. A low-pressure system is pulling northward slowly. It will settle over Middle Tennessee and chances exist for showers to become more numerous by Tuesday night. Total rainfall accumulations for most people will be between 2 and 3 inches. Chances of rain decrease by the weekend. Enjoy your upcoming wet week.
