Fantastic Good Friday

ANOTHER VERY NICE DAY: Expect temperatures to reach 80° for the second day in a row across Cookeville and the Upper Cumberlands of Tennessee. Yesterday's high was 85°, just 1° off the record of 86° set in 1963. Today's record is 87° from 1946. I expect we'll see 83° for our afternoon high. Rain and thunderstorm chances move in for Saturday. Don't believe it will be an all-day washout, but it will interfere with outdoor plans during a 6 hour window. Sunday, however, is going to be nice with warm temperatures and sunshine.

Weather History for This Date
