4/14/2009 @ 7 AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Everything is so green this morning and so wet. The birds are trying to cheer each other up but it’s not going to be very Spring Like today. Our Temperature will struggle to reach 56 degrees or so and the Clouds are going to hang in for awhile, maybe all day. I managed to Mow for a couple of hours on Monday but just made it to the Barn when the bottom dropped out and after that it rained on and off all afternoon and evening. It looks like Thursday and Friday will be long days in the Saddle because I have other plans for Saturday. We may still see a few shower chances today before we Clear out. After this ends our next Rain chances look like Saturday afternoon and Sunday. Unless something really unusual happens I think our Frost chances have ended until at least sometime in October so you can start seriously looking at some Tomato plants and a few Flowers. As we pass the middle of April the statistical averages tend to indicate that the number of Rainy days per week decreases a bit so maybe it will be planting time in a couple of weeks. The Trees are leafing out now and I think if we can get a few days of Sun the memory of our cool wet Winter will be long past. Now for the Soggy facts for this Tuesday morning.

We have .67″ of Rain to report this morning. This fell in increments during several heavy but brief showers and it seemed like it would be more than it was but it is what it is.
Temperature at 7 AM is 46 degrees. Cool today as we try to get to 56 for the High and a real cool 38 tonight. Wednesday we shoot for 62 degrees.

Barometer is 29.80″ and slowly trying to rise. The trend is up for the next few days.

Humidity is 85% and it feels more damp than that. We will after today start to dry out some for a few days.

Wind is Calm this morning but looking for West and Nortwest today at 10 to 15 mph. Wind will shift East and then South as we get into late Wednesday and Thursday.

Sky is Mostly Cloudy this morning. Look for Clouds today but some Sun as well. More Sun on Wednesday and plenty of Sun on Thursday and Friday.

The Summary for today is Damp and Cloudy with occasional periods of Sun. Cool and 56 for the High and Cooler and some clearing with a low of 38 tonight. Slight chance of rain showers today and then dry until at least Saturday afternoon. Have a good day.
