A LARGE AREA OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE MID MISSISSIPPI TO LOWER OHIO VALLEYS WILL POSSIBLY MOVE SOUTHEAST INTO MIDDLE TENNESSEE LATER TODAY AND TONIGHT. IF SO…THERE WILL BE A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS…WITH DAMAGING WINDS AND HAIL.

If so…I love it when the National Weather Service says IF. It will unless our luck changes. We continue to be stuck in our wet and stormy pattern. Some folks are complaining about our wet weather pattern and pointing to it’s origin back in February but…if you just look back to last year at this time we were complaining about the drought and worried about the Lakes and Rivers drying up. We have a long hot summer ahead of us and I bet we need this rain, it’s the Wind and Hail we can do without. The end of the work week looks to be a period of drying out, and Heat but we have some pretty good rain chances for Tuesday and Wednesday. Today the Humidity has made the air pretty heavy even at this early hour and we didn’t venture to far out this morning. The Robins were out in force this morning thinning out the Earth Worm population and 2 pair of Doves are gleaning over the spot on the ground where I dumped the seed from when I cleaned out the feeder. The Doves prefer their seed on the ground and I guess I could toss some out there when I do the re fills. You have to keep your customers happy. The Woodpeckers are banging away again this morning as well. I have not heard them in a while. We didn’t see Herbie the Turtle today I guess he was to fast for us.

We reported .07″ of Rain from a light Thunder Shower late yesterday afternoon. Some people got a good deal more and there was Hail and wind damage in some locations.
Temperature is 70 degrees at 7 AM headed to 88 for a High and 65 for the Low over night.

Barometer is steady at 30.00″ and maybe that can rise some late day on Wednesday but not much improvement before then.

Humidity is 95% early with 68 degree Dew Point. We will be muggy all day, Again.

Wind is Calm early but will be South West at 5 and gusty and variable near any Thunder Storms.

Sky is Partly Cloudy and we will have Clouds and Sun today.

The summary for Tuesday is more of the same. Hot and Humid with Thunder Shower chances. Some of the Showers could be strong later today. More shower chances Wednesday then a couple of dry days to end the work week. Rain chances back for the weekend. Have a good day, anyway.
