MILESTONE REACHED: Hard to believe when I started this weather blog nearly three years ago that it would grown into what it is today. This is the 1500th post. Thanks for being a part of it!
COLD, RAIN, and WIND: We've had .60" of rain overnight here in Cookeville. The most I've seen is just under an inch down toward the Chattanooga metro area. Rain continuing off and on today with a high around 53°. Rain continues tonight, low 38°. Then, we get stuck in a much-below normal pattern with highs on Thursday and Friday in the middle 40's and only in the 30's for Saturday. A chance of snow for Friday night into Saturday. There is a wind advisory today for the Cookeville and Putnam County area.
FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS: The Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletics Association (TSSAA) will hold their annual Blue Cross Bowl Football Championships on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at Tennessee Tech University right here in Cookeville.
