MONDAY SUNSHINE & WARM: Morning fog for your return to work. The kids are out of school due to the MLK holiday. Many offices are closed as well. Expect highs to reach the 50's this afternoon in Cookeville. One of the warmest and prettiest days in quite some time. Tuesday will be a repeat of today. Rain returns for Wednesday and Thursday. The warm run continues after that, but don't get to used to the warm weather says Jeff Ray at NashvilleWX as February is expected to turn back cold.
RAINFALL MEASUREMENT: Another .32" in my CoCoRaHS rain gauge this morning. This gave us 1.69" for the 2-day rains. You, too, can participate in CoCoRaHS. I expect the rain event on Wednesday and Thursday to be nearly as wet as this past one. January averages 5.11" typically.
