Beautiful Weekend (Severe Weather Monday)

Saturday and Sunday are looking quite nice across the Upper Cumberland. Expect highs on Saturday under a sunny sky of around 63-65° with Sunday's highs even warmer around 74-76°. Then, it gets interesting.

By the way, the webcam shot at the top of my blog that doesn't look like Cookeville is actually San Francisco. I've been trying to figure out why it is doing that, but haven't fixed it. My apologies. The correct image is here.

UPDATE: 10:11 AM CDT....
The link is fixed to My Weather Station should be viewing the webcam high atop the tower above the Emergency Services building on Willow Avenue. It currently looks east northeast.

The following is a Special Weather Statement issued by the weather forecast office located in Nashville, Tennessee. 

... A potential severe weather and heavy rainfall event likely
Monday and Monday night...

A strong cold front is expected to move through the area on Monday.
Ahead of this cold front...afternoon high temperatures will warm to
near 80 degrees at most locations with a moist and increasingly
unstable airmass expected to be in Monday afternoon.

Also...surface and low level winds are expected to be very strong.
This weather pattern will set the stage for severe thunderstorm
development across the mid state. This event will likely have a
line of strong to severe thunderstorms with the possibility of
supercells forming ahead the line. Any severe thunderstorms that
develop may have damaging wind...large hail...and a few tornadoes
are also possible.

Along with the severe thunderstorms...heavy rainfall is also possible
with this event. Our experts estimate around 2 inches of rain will
fall over the area on Monday and Monday night. Localized amounts
around three inches are possible.

Residents should keep abreast of this developing severe weather
situation. Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio and your local media
outlets for the latest updates.
