12/30/2009 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

A cloudy but milder start for our day this morning but Rain chances are on the increase and by this afternoon we see those showers filling in significantly. High today finally makes it into the upper 40’s. Another night above freezing but 100% Rain chances this evening. Not expecting any Snow or Ice but maybe some Flurries Thursday evening and New Years Day. The first Weather Story for the New Year will be Cold Weather. Highs on Friday through Monday will be in the Low 30’s and maybe the very Low 30’s at that. Check your vehicle anti freeze today or no later than tomorrow because the over night Lows for that Friday through Monday will be very Low 20’s and some “teens” as well. The cumulative effect of several really Cold days in a row can take a toll on the Water Pipes at home as well so be prepared. Outdoors this morning the Dogs and I hit the trail early and made the rounds. Not much wild life about but more Birds coming to visit our feeder. We need to invest in a Big bag of seed with the Cold weather we have on the way. All of the Live Stock and any out doors living Dogs and Cats will need extra feed for several days and a supply of fresh and not frozen water. Winter is rough in spells around here and we’re having a spell this coming weekend. Now for the facts at 7 AM this morning.

We did not have any precipitation to report to the CoCoRaHs folks this morning as once again the previous 24 hours was dry.
Temperature at 7AM was 34 degrees after we hovered at the 32 mark part of the night but not much if any below freezing last night. Look for maybe 47 today and then 39 degrees tonight .

Bar.30.30″ and starting to Fall in just the last few hours. Look for a drop tonight and Thursday and then a strong Rise for the weekend. All that Cold weather will be driven by a strong High Pressure area.

Hum. 75% and Lower Level moisture will be increasing today.

Wind E 3mph but the trend will be to the South as the day progresses. The Shift North comes tomorrow night. that will usher in the severe Cold and a few lingering Flurries as the wet stuff moves away.

Mostly Cloudy and Clouds will be here most of the day but some Sunny breaks as well.

The Summary, Today: A 30 percent chance of rain after noon. Cloudy, with a high near 47. South wind around 10 mph. Tonight: Rain. Low around 39. South wind between 5 and 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%.Thursday: A 50 percent chance of rain. Cloudy, with a high near 48. South wind around 5 mph becoming north northwest.

Get your Cold weather preparations done and get ready for a cold start for the New Year.



  1. Appears the cold air is coming and will stay for a while!!

    • I’ve been thinking this Winter would be a rough one. I think we may see at least one significant Snow this year at least. I like to ride my Motorcycle even in the Winter but she’s in the Barn for awhile I think. Happy New Year!
