WEEKEND FORECAST:Your Cookeville, TN forecast includes a variety of summer-like weather conditions, including thunderstorms, sunshine, and blazing heat once again. We'll see the hottest weather during the mid-week coming up where temperatures will zoom back into the middle 90's. Before that happens, however, we'll deal with some chances for rainfall over the weekend with highs Saturday in the middle 80's and Sunday in the upper 80's. Neither today nor Sunday will be a complete washout, so get out and enjoy your weekend!
FRIDAY'S RAINFALL:Just .03" was reported here at my station while my friend, Phil Adams, who lives in south Cookeville noted at least 2" at his home. The hit or miss variety of yesterday's rainfall is a typical summer pattern. Phil and I are just about 6 miles apart. Just 4 miles south of Monterey, TN (just out of our county) 2.55" was recorded from yesterday. We have a new feature below showing the wettest spot in Tennessee and in America. Check it out!
