5/7/2009 @ 7 AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

If it wasn’t for that 1.10″ in the Rain Gauge this morning I think this morning would be just about perfect. There is a Bright Orb in the Sky this morning that I vaguely remember being my friend, and I’m glad to see him again. We are looking for a Partly Cloudy day with some Shower chances but more than likely we will not have any more Rain today. Tomorrow is another likely wet day and while it may not be a wash out the Weekend is not looking too great either. Sorry Moms but your Special Day might be Cool and Showery. We have since May 1st reported 9.4″ of Rain from here and it’s only the 7th of May. We have reported Rain in some amount every day so far this month. The ground is so soft here that during the morning walkabout I stepped on a patch of Grass Covered ground that sank 2″ into the ground. Good thing it was on grass or a truck would have had to pull me out, if you could get one up here as wet as it is. I’m hoping that the Sun may dry off the grass and we can maybe Mow the higher end of the Lawn around the house. It will be a bit messy but this is the only likely day for it in the near future. After today unless something changes we have Shower chances until next Tuesday. I’m thinking from some of what is shaping up out West we may have a Hot spell after this wet spell. Now for the facts.

We reported 1.10″ of Rain for the last 24 hours.
Temperature at 7 AM was 62 degrees. Looking for 80 for the High and 62 for tonight’s Low as more Clouds and rain chances descend on us.

Barometer is managing 29.95″ this morning and Steady. Still no big rise and likely a bit of a drop later. We are still in the Unstable end of the Scale.

Humidity is indicating 97%. We will have some evaporation today but that will just put more moisture back into the air. We will be damp until a Hot Air Mass pushes this out of here, but that’s several days off.

Wind is Southwest at 2 mph this morning. We will have a shift Northerly Saturday night or early Sunday that will cool us off but still have Shower chances. Speeds of 10 to 15 mph for a few days.

The Sky is Mostly Cloudy this morning with some Sun and maybe more Sun this afternoon. Increasing Clouds tonight.

The Summary for today is Fair and Warm. High of about 80. This day is as good as it gets here lately so get out and stir around some. Don’t get stuck in the mud. Have a good day anyway. It’s really your choice.
