WELCOME BACK SUNSHINE AND HEAT:
We expect sunshine and highs in the middle 80's for your Thursday.
First, however, lets revisit Wednesday across the Upper Cumberland. Storms rumbled through the area most of Wednesday dumping an impressive 2.07" of rain here at my CoCoRaHS rain gauge. The high yesterday was just 75.4° due to the rain and clouds. There were quite a few hail reports (see photo above) as well. Hail the size of golf balls and half dollars were reported right here in Cookeville while out in Double Springs they saw quarter-sized hail. The events occurred around lunch in Cookeville and then again last night after 9 pm near Algood, Bangham, and surrounding areas.
Slight chances of showers and thunderstorms all the way through Father's Day with highs on Friday in the upper 80's, lower 90's for Saturday, and lower to middle 90's on Sunday. The heat has returned.
