Warming With Chances of Rain

**Warming Up**
Quite a nice day is in store for most of us here in the Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee. A very slight chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon, but most will see no rain. Highs will be in the upper 70's. Rain makes an appearance again on Friday, with some storms reach strong status. Not sold on any severe weather at this point, but will monitor latest updates.

**Weekend Outlook**
The weekend will be wet to start, but Sunday looks great with highs both days in the mid 60's and lows at night in the upper 40's to lower 50's. Not bad, although it is below normal, for the 2nd week of October. Typically this time of year, we see highs around 74°...this October's high temperatures are running nearly 6° below normal while just a couple of years ago (in 2007), our average daily high through the first eight days was more than 11° above normal.

Interested in how and why leaves change colors in the Autumn? This oldie, but goodie, web page explains the ins and outs of Leaf Change. Fall is certainly in the air and it is well worth reading.
