Cold Tuesday; Warmer Week Ahead

WINTRY MIX: Cold today with a mixture of freezing sleet along with snow flurries this morning across the Upper Cumberland and Cookeville. Temperatures will struggle to 30° by this afternoon. Be careful on secondary roads as there are some very slick spots this morning county-wide. After a low in the teens tonight, we'll make it all the way to 42° on Wednesday and 48° on Thursday under mostly sunny skies! What a difference that will be.

IN THE HEADLINES: Thanks to Laura Gwinn at the Herald-Citizen for quoting me and featuring some great weather information in yesterday's paper.
