4/18/2009 @ 7 AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Here in Middle Tennessee this morning we have the Sun coming up on a Clear and Mild Spring Saturday morning. Weather can be deceptive can’t it. And change is just 175 miles down Interstate 40 in Memphis. They are socked in with Rain Showers and maybe a Thunder shower here and there. It’s running a little bit late but it is coming here by sometime shortly after lunch. Our 45 degrees and Clear skies will soon yield to warmer but definitely wetter conditions by tonight. But today doesn’t have to be a bust if you get up and head out early. Tonight we can look forward to pretty fair Rain and Thundershower chances but nothing severe is predicted. The period of Sunday afternoon until about 1 AM on Monday morning is the target time for possible Strong to severe Thunderstorms so stay aware and have the NOAA Weather Radio cranked up. Next week doesn’t look to bad if we can make it past Monday. Nothing else major to report from here so now for those facts for Saturday morning.

No precipitation for the last 24 hours.
Temperature at 7 AM is 45 degrees. Looking for a 72 degree day but that will fall off a bit after the Clouds and rain start. Low tonight of about 55. Sunday a little bit cooler but still mild at 68 or so.

The Barometer is 30.20″ and is falling this morning. Even without the benefit of Radar and all the other information sources we now have available my old Granny would know something was coming when she saw that Barometer start to continuously fall with still clear skies.

Humidity is 90% which is just a tad heavier than normal for this hour so the moisture is firmly in place.

The Calm wind will soon pickup to 5 to 10 mph from the South and Southeast. Look for more Westerly to Northwest wind as the next spell of weather winds down on Monday.

Sky is clear this morning but Clouds are on the way. We will be mostly cloudy for a few days but likely some sunny breaks from time to time. Tuesday looks to be mostly Sunny after this clears out.

The Summary for this weekend is Change is coming. Clear Sunny sky yields to Clouds and rain showers by this afternoon and evening. Rain for Sunday and possibly stronger storms Sunday afternoon and night. Warm mild temperatures thru the period. Cooler on Monday as this moves out. Make the most of this morning. Hope to see you in Church on Sunday. Have a fine weekend anyway.
