BIG CHANGES FROM PAST WEEK: Rain with falling temperatures this morning. Most of the heaviest rain has moved east of the Cookeville area. Temperatures have fallen since midnight and continue to go down. We'll fall through the 50's this afternoon to an overnight low in the 30's! Highs near 60 on Friday, but then right back in 30's for Friday night/Saturday morning. The weekend looks nice with daytime highs in the 70's!
