Sunny Skies with 30's This Weekend
Expect sunny skies as far as we can see (up through next Wednesday) with a high today of 79°. We start this morning in the middle 50's around Cookeville, Tennessee. Hints of the change in weather show-up this evening very late and on Friday. More on that below.
BIG CHANGES IN TEMPERATURE:
After today's late summer-like day, a change in our weather will turn us back into the middle of Autumn. Just to our west is a strong frontal boundary that will bring in the coolest weather yet this season. In fact, Sunday and Monday mornings will be downright cold! We'll dip into the 30's on both mornings. Friday's high will be 67°, but a pretty strong WNW wind will run 10 to 20 mph with higher gusts. Thankfully, it will be sunny! Saturday morning's low temps will be in the low 40's and I don't think we climb out of the 50's on Saturday afternoon.
Cookeville High School takes on Crossville this Friday night. If you're headed up to Cumberland County on Friday, take a jacket...you'll need it as temperatures back off quickly after sunset.
WARM-UP SUNDAY THROUGH NEXT WEEK:
After a very cold morning Sunday (expect 30's), we'll rebound to around 65° during the daytime and go right back into the 30's overnight Sunday into Monday with a high Monday of 71° and still warmer afternoons on Tuesday and Wednesday.
*Latest Local Forecast*
FYI, last time in 30's was way back on May 5th...almost 5 months ago.
Looks like we'll end September with 7.91"...it was our rainiest month since June and the 4th most this year. 2011 is running WAY AHEAD of normal as we're near our average annual total for precipitation and still have 3 months (more than 90 days) left in 2011.
