Hot Weather Run Is Back

Expect 90's for your Tuesday with a slight chance for thunderstorms. Speaking of rain, we picked up a bit on Monday afternoon after a high of 88° at 3:15 pm. The rain didn't quite amount to much here in northeast Cookeville, but other areas got a decent drenching. I think showers will be of the hit or miss variety once again Tuesday and Wednesday with slightly lower chances the rest of the week with increasing highs into the middle 90's. A Heat Advisory and Excessive Heat Watch are up in west Tennessee and to the northwest in Kentucky.

Our morning's Hazardous Weather Outlook.

Beat the heat, check the backseat. Heat is a major killer and you cannot take too many precautions.
