Rain, Heavy At Times Today, Snow By Friday

Early morning heavy rains have dumped more than 1" as of 7 o'clock this morning in Cookeville. More rain is expected to fall throughout the day. Temperatures will rise slightly from the upper 50's to the lower 60's. Clearing skies later with a low by Wednesday morning of 38°.

Rain chances return again for Wednesday and Wednesday night with thunderstorms likely for Thanksgiving Day (some could be severe) with a high near 70° and rain continuing overnight with a low of 34°. We expect wraparound snow on Friday for the shoppers with highs in the 40's and then much colder Friday night with a low of 25°. The weekend looks sunny, but cool.

What is wraparound snow? This former Michigander is not familiar with that term.

So sorry about that TENN LADY.

That word refers to the weather conditions that happen after a cold front has swung through and the precipitation that 'wraps around' the counter clockwise circulation of a low pressure system is called wraparound precipitation or in this case, wraparound snow.

Typically, it is very light in nature, but can at times accumulate. The ground is too warm for any to accumulate this time.

Thanks for asking, I appreciate your comment and question! My apologies for not getting to it sooner.
