12/22/2008 @ 7:00 AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Winter has arrived in case anyone had not already noticed. Sunday’s High temperature was 43 deg. at Noon but fell rapidly from that mark during the afternoon. With clear Sky and a Cold Northwest Wind the Low last night hit 9 Deg. With .25″ of Rain in the gauge Sunday morning from a brief rain event Saturday night we had no precipitation Sunday. There is strong High Pressure to our immediate West that will gradually move east today and ultimately start to shift wind more Southerly tomorrow. Meanwhile another Front just hit the West Coast this morning, we will have to watch to see the track. So far the really bad stuff has mostly gone North of Tennessee but as we get deeper into December the Jet Stream can be expected to drop further South from time to time. Now for today’s facts.

Temperature this morning is 9 deg. that was the Low last night after a High Sunday of 43 deg. The High today may not exceed 30 deg. Tonight the Low temp should be around 18 or so as the High Pressure eases off to the East and the Wind dies down some.

Barometer is Steady at a strong 30.45″. The pressure will likely fall off this evening as the current High pressure complex gives way to the next frontal assault from the West.

Humidity is 73%, that is as low as we have seen it lately.

Wind is NW at 5 mph giving a Windchill factor of 0″ this morning. The wind likely will die down tonight and then Shift more Southerly.

Sky is clear but Clouds returning late today. Low Humidity and Clear sky will give us a remarkable blue Sky today.

The forecast summary for today is Cold temperature and clear sky. Clouds increasing late and chances for Freezing rain giving way to just rain tomorrow. Not as cold tomorrow. Tuesday and Wednesday look wet with some rain chances for Christmas, but that’s still a ways off and things are happening fast this time of year. Have good day and bundle up.
