COLD RUN OVER FOR NOW: Teens this morning across the area, but I have good news! Sunny skies and 44° today across Cookeville, TN. We've not been that warm since last year (December 31, 2009). Much of the snow will melt today and we will probably see most, if not all, of school systems back in session on Thursday. We do start with a SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT through 9 o'clock this morning for freezing fog in some locations. That could make bridges and overpasses slippery. The forecast (below) looks nice through Friday night with highs moderating into the 50's on Thursday and Friday. Expect rain this weekend with cooler temperatures. The National Weather Service is calling the warm up a Major Pattern Change. The map above shows just how quiet Tennessee is right and the influencing weather factors will come from the south for a while as opposed to the very cold north.
