Veteran's Day Forecast
MORE IDA EFFECTS: What was left of Tropical Storm Ida caused quite a bit of rain to fall across East Tennessee. Morning CoCoRaHS reports show a plethora of 3"+ reports. We're waiting on some in extreme southeast TN where more than 5" has reportedly been measured. Back here in Cookeville, just .26" was our total storm measurement
TODAY: Cool across Middle Tennessee this morning and breezy conditions. Expect mostly sunny skies with highs just below 60°. Thank a vet today for their service. We should honor them EVERYDAY! Sunshine all the way through Sunday with moderating temperatures. We'll be near 70° by Friday and over the weekend!
