Rain, Rain, and Even More Rain

A potent rainmaker is making it's way through middle Tennessee today. January has already been a wet month in Cookeville with more than 4.5" already recorded. This system will give us another 1"-2" with some locations receiving up to 3". There is the threat of flooding as the ground is saturated from recent rains.

Today: RAIN showers and possibly a thunderstorm. High 61°, rain chances 100%
Tonight: RAIN showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Low 40°, rain chances 100%

The general outlook for the end of this week, the weekend, and next week is for temperatures to be near normal this time of year on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (high 40's/upper 20's to mid 30's) with a warm-up for Monday and Tuesday and rain returns Wednesday. Not looking very promising for snow at this point!

I saw that you are a trained Skywarn Storm Spotter. How did you get to become one? I'd love to do that.

Go to your local site and they should have a training schedule posted. We, typically, start our training in the winter so that we have fresh spotters ready to go for spring's stormy season.

Here are some local Skywarn groups in Connecticut.
