White Christmas Possible In Cookeville

It's not as common as you might think in the Cookeville area, but forecasters say there's about a 50-50 chance of a White Christmas this year. They say rain showers are likely on Friday and then -- after midnight that night-- when the temperatures drop into 20s, that rain could turn into snowfall with snow showers are predicted as "likely" on Christmas Day. They put the chance of snow right now at 60 percent. Based on historical data, Tennessee generally has less than a twenty percent chance of a White Christmas in any given year.
