Showers and thunderstorms are likely today, especially this morning, with a high of around 83°. I don't think it will be an all day washout and do see us having at least some partly cloudy skies later in the day.
Yesterday we saw heavy rains fall at lunch with 1.69" measured at my station. This gives us 4.89" for the month of August and that is 1.06" MORE than the entire month's average for August. Through 9 days, the typical average for August is 1.08".
The great news is we'll transition out of the rainy pattern and have a very nice weekend with plenty of sunshine and the high on Saturday struggling to reach the 80's and into the mid 80's for Sunday.
We've seen some showers this morning across the Cookeville area.
