Do you remember the very cold winter of 2009-2010 when temperatures in January failed to reach freezing (32°) in 10 out of the first 12 days?
Check out the following outlook and leave me a comment!
2010-2011 Winter Weather Outlook for Middle Tennessee!
The expectation of another cold winter would excite many across the Middle Tennessee area. As of right now, our weather is being affected by La Ninã. Many, who do this for a living, don't believe it will affect us all winter. La Ninã winters have a history of giving us more snow than average.

First map is from the Farmer's Almanac
(not to be confused with Old Farmer's Almanac)
The Old Farmer's Almanac has the following paragraph about this winter. "Winter will be colder than normal, with precipitation below normal in the north and above normal in the south. Most days in January will be cold, with other cold periods in early to mid-February. Snowfall will generally be above normal, with the snowiest periods in mid- and late January and mid-February."
Finally, I have a couple of maps that are courtesy of our friends with NOAA's National Weather Service and the Climate Prediction Center. It portends a winter of possible above average temperatures and a possibility of above average precipitation. It certainly disagrees with both of 'almanacs'.
So, what is going to happen? I would encourage you to stay tuned and keep coming back to the Cookeville Weather Guy web site for the latest on the 2010-2011 winter. I can promise a couple of things. 1) We'll see some snow. 2) We will see some cold weather. 3) We will have a couple of potential storms that will disappoint us. After all, it is Middle Tennessee.
