Thanksgiving Day Forecast Update

TUESDAY OUTLOOK: Before we get to the much-anticipated Thanksgiving Day updated weather forecast, let's look at the Tuesday outlook. Patchy fog this morning across portions of Tennessee, it should clear off by 8 a.m. or so. Cloudy the rest of today with highs around 60° here in Cookeville. Rain chances tonight (around 30%) with a low in the middle 40's. Mostly sunny on Wednesday, high 58°, then we go 'downhill' from there.

UPDATED THANKSGIVING FORECAST: Expect falling temperatures and a raw Turkey day. No, not raw turkey for Thanksgiving, but raw weather conditions. Ok, maybe that was a poor choice of words. Anyway, temperatures will fall throughout the day and we'll have a chance for overnight snow flurries or snow showers. Black Friday will be cold, with snow flurries early, and a high of only 45°.
