3/10/2009 @ 7:00AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Springtime is in the air and the heat is on today. The overcast we are currently experiencing as if it wasn’t already dark enough at 7 AM will give way to a mix of Sun and Clouds during the day. Looking toward the end of the day maybe more Clouds than Sun but still a nice day and we will almost certainly hit 80 degrees in the Southern Region. A round of Rain and a chance for Thunderstorms over night and then we have several days of below normal temperatures. Spring is 10 days away but after all it’s still Winter. With all of the rain this Winter and these warm spells in February and March things are going to ramp up pretty quick around here. My 2 Acre front yard will need mowing in a couple of weeks unless we have some more hefty frost. The next cold snap doesn’t look like it will have enough cold air to hurt anything. A lot of the guys around here are running a lot of Cows here lately and everyone is hoping for a good grass and haying season. We really don’t need much rain right now and about 4 weeks of dry weather with a shower here and there would be just about right. But we can’t order our Weather from Sears & Roebuck as my Granny used to say. Now for the facts.

We duly reported a Trace amount of Rain to the Weather Service for the last 24 hours, due primarily to some Sprinkles about 9 PM last evening.
Temperature at 7 AM was 60 degrees after a very brief low overnight of 58. The high today anticipated to be 80 or better will be a record according to the Channel 4 weather folks. The low tonight with some Rain will be about 45 degrees.

Barometer is 30.05″ and falling. Pressure will fall slowly all day and rebound behind the Front passing through overnight.

Humidity is 80% this morning. Not to high for this hour, but we will see increasing Relative Humidity today even as we warm up.

The Wind is Calm early but picking up quickly from the South today and from the West later. Speeds could be 15 to 20 this afternoon with gust of 30 overnight. Shifting Northerly after the front passes.

Sky is Mostly Cloudy early but look for some Sun as well. More Clouds tonight and Cloudy likely all day on Wednesday.

The Summary for today is Increasing Clouds and warm with High of 80 degrees. Cloudy this evening with rain late and possible Storms overnight and into Wednesday morning. Another good night to have the NOAA Weather Radio on. The rough Weather looks to stay to our North but we will be on the alert. Have a good day it will be cool for a while after today.
