4/28/2009 @ 7 AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

When the Weather Man doesn’t know for sure if or when it might Rain on a given day but they know there’s a chance it could and nobody likes to be wrong, that’s when we drag out the old 20 percent Chance of Rain, and today that’s what we have. I really believe at some point before this day is over most of the folks in Middle Tennessee will likely have a Shower of rain and may even hear a Clap of Thunder. Some may not and I would like to see it hold off a day myself. There is a good deal of weather trying hard to come into our region but we have still got a strong Barometer and Low Humidity keeping us dry for now. The Clouds did arrive this morning as predicted however and eventually we will see some Rain. We have Rain “chances” for the next several days along with slightly cooler temperatures. We are ever vigilant for severe weather and to the West it has been active for several days and nights. For the time being we don’t foresee any severe weather because the storms are predicted to lose strength in our more stable and dry air here in Middle Tennessee. People who read this Blog regularly already know that you need to monitor your NOAA Weather Radio, especially at night. I don’t want to lose readers to a night time Tornado. Now the “guys want to play” and I have work to do and so here are the facts.

We did not receive any rain to report for the last 24 hours.
Temperature at 7 AM is 62 degrees headed for about 80 for the High, maybe a tad less in the more Cloudy locations. Look for 58 to 60 over night and back up to 78 or so on Wednesday.

Barometer is 30.30″ and Steady. We still have a Strong Stable atmosphere, but that is transitioning to lower pressure later today and rain chances for a few days.

Humidity is 70% this morning. On the low side for early morning. Humidity is however on the rise. We have seen our last 25% humidity days for awhile.

The Wind is still Southerly at 2 mph this morning. Look for a little less gusty wind than in the last few days. Maybe a bit of wind around the Showers. I still do not see any major Wind shift anytime soon. If it varies at all maybe South East to South West.

The Sky is mostly Cloudy this morning as Clouds have returned to Tennessee, but still look for a lot of Sun as well today. Increasing Clouds over night and we will have Clouds for several days but still we will have Sunny periods as well.

The Summary for Tuesday morning is calling for a return to Mid Spring like conditions. Mixture of Sun and Clouds. Some rain showers, likely later today. High about 80 and low about 60. Our little Summer Spell is over but we still are well in the comfortable zone. Have a good one.
