5/9/2009 @ 7 AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

We managed to dodge all of the bad weather yesterday here in the Southern Region but in parts of Tennessee Funnel Clouds were as common as Kansas twisters yesterday afternoon. I don’t need any of that kind of action around here but we will not dodge the rain today. We did get a quick shower just after observation time yesterday that left .04 in the gauge. So for the 9th day of May and 9 days straight we will have rain to report to the CoCoRahs program. And guess what, they will have some on day 10 as well because I can see it crossing the Wheat field and heading towards the house. The break in this wet spell is coming however. Sunday looks to be less wet and some lucky Moms may not see any rain. Monday and Tuesday are looking SUNNY at the present time. I consulted two sources on that and they agree with me so if you are behind on the outdoor chores and who isn’t you need to be ready to git r done first of the week. The temperature will take a bit of a dip on Sunday along with a Northerly wind shift but that’s what it’s going to take to clear out this rain. We won’t be cold but may only barely make 70 degrees in some spots. After Tuesday we will again see some slight Shower chances day to day but it’s getting close to the time of year that the old 20% chance of a afternoon rain shower will be a fact of life. Hope all of the Moms have a great Mothers Day and all of the Dads and Sons treat Mom special. Now for the facts.

We reported .04″ of rain for the last 24 hours.
Temperature at 7 AM was 62 degrees. Looking for about 76 for a High and a Cool 55 tonight for the Low. Cooler on Sunday and Monday. But less rain.

Barometer is Steady at 29.95″ this morning. We are waiting for a bit of a Rise after today. The needle has been below 30 inches for awhile now. Not unusual for Spring time but we deserve a break from the wet weather or the grass is gonna get moldy.

Humidity is 95% and not going to get much better than that today. We will see a drying up after today along with a wind shift and some cooler air.

Wind is Southwest at 2 mph this morning. Trending toward the West and ultimately the Northwest by Sunday. We will see some gusty wind in and near the Showers.

Sky is Overcast this morning. some Sun this afternoon in Spots. Sun and Clouds on Sunday and Sunny on Monday.

The Summary for this weekend is Rain on Saturday and 76 degrees. Some Rain on Sunday and Cooler at 70 degrees. Less rain on Sunday however. Rain ending on Sunday and we are anticipating some Fair weather next week. Hope you have a great Weekend anyway. Hope to see you in Church on Sunday. Happy Mothers Day Mom. Hope to see you on Monday. It’s good mental health to live a hopeful life
