Slight Storm Chances

Another hot day is forecast for the Highlands of Tennessee. Here in Cookeville, we'll hit 92° this afternoon with a slight chance of thunderstorms. Winds will remain calm to an occasional light breeze around 5 mph from the ESE. Overnight, storms possible (only 30%) with a low of 71° and then on Friday, we'll see storms chances rise to 50% and cooler, high of 87°. You can repeat that same exact forecast for Saturday.

Some amazing rainfall numbers from Tuesday's strong storms. Locally, we saw as much as 3" of rain fall in some locations of Cookeville. This caused flooding in several locations including, but not limited to, Willow at Jackson Street and Willow at Broad Street. A surprise location that was flooded was near the Lowe's store across from Bowling World. Echo Valley saw additional flooding, although it wasn't as devastating as the one which closed the famous pool. At my weather station and CoCoRaHS rain gauge, we saw just 1.03" of rain on Tuesday.
