4/17/2009 @ 7 AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Yesterday was one fine day, and today looks to be more of the same and a little bit warmer. It’s amazing how much difference the addition of a little Sun can make, no wonder the ancient peoples worshiped the Sun. We managed to get a test flight on the Model Sailplane yesterday morning before the wind picked up and we still have some work to do but I’m happiest when I have something to tinker with. Missy apparently thought it was a big bird and she barked her little head off until it landed and then she ran over to hide behind Benji who was actually bored with the whole thing.
The current nice spell of weather will be ending as clouds gather this evening and by Saturday afternoon we have rain and Thunderstorm chances. Those rain chances will hang in until Tuesday and then maybe we get a few days of Spring Sunshine again. So that’s about all we got for today, the Weather is a lot more tranquil than last Friday and we hope it stays that way. Now for the facts.

We have no rain to report for the last 24 hours.
Temperature at 7 AM is 45 degrees. Low last night was 41. We will likely hit 75 today in the Southern region and drop back to 45 tonight. Saturday with Clouds and rain returning will be a bit cooler but still about 70 degrees.

Barometer is 30.35″ and steady. Look for the pressure to drop a bit later today and we will watch that drop to see how strong our next batch of Thunder storms will be. The Texas panhandle got hit hard last night.

Humidity is 98% this morning and with winds shifting into the South we will have plenty of moisture for the rain showers.

Wind is calm early but will be Southerly at 10 mph today. Look for calm wind overnight.

The sky is clear this morning but clouds will be rolling in later today and we should be cloudy tonight.

The Summary for today is Fair and warm. Clouds increasing later and rain by Saturday afternoon. If you have outdoor chores you need to do them today. We will be damp until Tuesday. Have a great Friday.
