WARM UP: Finally Above Freezing

After more than 97 hours below freezing, the thermometer topped 32° in Cookeville at 12:22 pm. This run of frigid weather started back on Tuesday, January 21 at 10:51 am.

Cookeville saw snow flurries this morning and sleet during the later mid-morning hours. Roads quickly become covered and side streets were a bit slick. Traffic flow kept main roads from getting any accumulation. Just to our north and east, snow quickly piled up on roads.

Saturday Morning Snowfall Amounts:
Celina/Clay County: Half-inch
Byrdstown/Pickett County: Half to One Inch; slick roads
Jamestown/Fentress County: Up to Two Inches: slick roads

Temperatures have moderated to 40° at 3 pm. We expect a partly cloudy night and turning very cold again with lows around 16° by sunrise on Sunday.

Sunday will be the nicest day in quite some time with sunny skies early and a high of 53°.

Expect snow showers overnight Sunday with a low of 25°

Cold on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday with highs around 30° on Monday, 16° on Tuesday, and 25° on Wednesday. Lows will be in the single digits all three nights with the Wednesday morning giving us the best chance to be BELOW ZERO.
