Cold Weather To Stick Around For Awhile

Sam Herron of the National Weather Service office in Nashville says forecasters are expecting the cold weather to last at least through the next couple of weeks. He says that for the next few days, highs are forecast in the high 20s and low 30s, and overnight lows in the teens and single digits. The average high in mid-January is 46 degrees; the average low, 28 degrees. Herron says the temperatures won't break cold weather records, but says it is unusual for them to be so low for such a long period of time. He says by Thursday, a cold front carrying snow may reach the Cookeville area.
