Warming Up Across Upper Cumberland

NEAR 40° TODAY: As it became light earlier this morning, I noticed something very strange in the sky. A burning ball of fire. I thought, for a split-second, that it must be a UFO. What I discovered was the sun is shining this morning. We will get to near 40° this afternoon. Cloud may be on the increase later today. For Friday, sunshine and 46°. Should we reach that high, it would be the first time since February 4th.

SPEAKING OF COLD TEMPS: During January, our average daily temperature was 31.2°, which was 4.5° below normal. During February, our average daily temperature has been 29.8°, almost 8° below normal. If you think it has been cold, you are correct!
