Major Rain Event

The past 24 hours saw a major rain event strike the Cookeville area with as much as 6.72" recorded. Since midnight on Monday, we've recorded 7.05" here at my home. Reports are coming in early this morning of 6.41" at a CoCoRaHS station 3.3 miles south southwest of Cookeville and 6.35" at a station in White County (near the Putnam line). Over the next couple of hours, we'll have a much more complete picture of exactly how much rain fell.

The flooding rains kept the first response teams very busy as streets flooded trapping passengers in their automobiles.

In last evenings post, I listed the top 10 rain events for Cookeville since 1896 and this one is sure to be close to the top..if not the most ever for a 24-hour period.

Our forecast is for temperatures to be chilly over the next couple of days. The complete forecast is in the link below.

As one who could have easily found himself as a Meteorologist than a Software Quality Engineer, I really appreciate your posts.
