Sundays night 32 degrees………FROST ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 3 AM TO 8 AM CDT SUNDAY……FREEZE WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY MORNING…THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN NASHVILLE HAS ISSUED A FROST ADVISORY…WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 3 AM TO 8 AM CDT SUNDAY. A FREEZE WATCH HAS ALSO BEEN ISSUED. THIS FREEZE WATCH IS IN EFFECT FROM LATE SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY MORNING.A HIGH PRESSURE AREA OVER THE CENTRAL PLAINS EARLY THIS MORNING WILL MOVE SLOWLY SOUTHEAST TODAY…AND THEN EAST INTO OUR REGION OVERNIGHT. CLOUDINESS IS EXPECTED TO DECREASE TONIGHT AND WINDS WILL BE LIGHT.

SKIES WILL BECOME CLEAR OVER WEST SECTIONS OF THE AREA AND MOSTLY CLEAR ELSEWHERE. THIS IN COMBINATION WITH LIGHT OR CALM WINDS MAY ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO DROP TO AROUND THE FREEZING MARK AT MOST LOCATIONS…AND POSSIBLY INTO THE UPPER 20’s ON THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU. FROST WILL ALSO BE WIDESPREAD.

It’s not unusual to have Frost this early but the last several years we’ve run considerably later than this. Now the question is when will we see our first Snow for the season. The Puppy Dog Trail was wet and muddy this morning but we made it to all of our designated spots. If we get a Frost tonight and a Freeze on Sunday our mowing job next week may just about wrap things up for the mower. We need to do a few details and fine tune a spot or two here and there and transition into Winter mode. So let’s look at the facts right quick so we can get ready for some Football.

Reporting .05″ of Rain for the 24 hours.
Temp. at 7 AM was 41 deg. and headed to 48 degrees today and then down to 33 deg. tonight. Sunday with Sun we look for 58 degrees. Sunday night Low of 32 deg. and less in Spots.

Barometer is 30.19″ and Rising. Look for good stable Pressure through Wednesday at least.

Humidity is 85% early and will Fall a bit today. Drier air will invade Tennessee for a few days.

Wind is Northwest at 6 mph this morning. Look for a North Wind until Monday then shifting South West. A shift to South East will begin returning some Rain chances later in the week.

Sky is Cloudy but will be Clearing over night. Sunny for Sunday through Wednesday.

The Summary for the weekend. Today: A slight chance of rain or drizzle before 1pm, then a slight chance of showers after 1pm. Cloudy, with a high near 48. North northwest wind between 10 and 15 mph.

I’ll be looking for you all in Church on Sunday. lol
