Nice Start With A Warm Day Ahead

We began the morning at 59° and expect temperatures to warm up quickly after the sun rises. We'll top out at 87° this afternoon under a sunny sky. Winds are expected to be mainly calm.

Tonight, increasing clouds and a low around 69° and we'll see a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. For Friday, showers and thunderstorms are likely with a high in the lower 80's. Rain chances continue Friday night, but the weekend is expected to be quite nice with highs in the 70's and lows in the 50's under sunny skies.

Much of next week will be cool and clear with warm, sunny days and very comfortable evenings.

Football Forecast:
The Cookeville High School 9th grade team takes on Pope John Paul II (JP2) tonight. JP 2 is coached by former longtime and very successful Cookeville coach Jerry Joslin. Kickoff is slated for 6 pm and I expect a temperature of 84° and light SSW wind at 2 mph. There is a very slight rain chance.
