SUNNY WEDNESDAY: Sunshine for your Thanksgiving-Eve here in Cookeville. We had a few sprinkles overnight that resulted in .02" in the CoCoRaHS professional 4" rain gauge. Expect highs to reach around 56° today with the sunny skies. Some other sections of Tennessee, around Nashville, will climb over 60°. On Thanksgiving, you'll need to dress warmly as a cold front brings some sprinkles and strong west winds. Highs only in the upper 40's with lows tomorrow night in the lower 30's. We can't rule out a changeover to snow late Thursday/early Friday. Speaking of Friday, if you're shopping you'll need to dress warmly as we expect a chilly start with some flurries flying. Eventually, we'll clear out and high the upper 40's by Friday afternoon!
