More Snow Last Night and Today

SNOW CONTINUES: Temperatures are very cold this morning (22°) as of this posting. Another 2" has accumulated since yesterday morning here in Cookeville. This gives us a total of 4" since the snow began. Saw a picture of a nearly 6" amount from Monterey last night. This morning, there is a report of a 7.5" total near Monterey as well.

TUESDAY'S OUTLOOK: Look for snow showers to continue today and we may receive up to another 1/2" of accumulation, high of only 27°. Tonight, snow showers again with another 1/2" possible. Low around 22° and any daytime melting that occurs will likely refreeze overnight. Appears likely the students and teachers will see another day off on Wednesday. More forecast details below.
