1/4/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Partly Cloudy with Flurries this morning. High today of about 29 degrees. No real Snow expected just Cold temperatures. Low tonight about 12 degrees in the Rural areas. Wednesday night Snow for real and maybe a inch or 2 so stay tuned for updates. The flurries today are just a result of the Cold air squeezing the little bit of moisture out of some passing clouds. The amount of available moisture will determine the volume of Snow we get in the mid week event so that’s what we’ll be studying on today. After the Snow we can expect a serious reinforcing shot of Cold air so we are going to be dealing with very cold weather for a considerable number of days. We made the trip down the Puppy Dog Trail today but we didn’t linger too long. The Bird Feeder hasn’t seen a lot of action in the last few days but if we get Snow cover on the ground that will pickup I guess. The Tractor is down for the Winter and it’s Battery is in the Utility room staying warm. The Kawasaki however is still ready to go if it warms up above 40 degrees. We started her up yesterday for 15 minutes or so. I guess we’ll have to fire up the Truck and haul off some trash about mid morning when it gets up to 20 plus. Now for the facts.

We are reporting Trace amounts for the last couple of days from the occasional Flurries we have been experiencing.
Temp.11deg. and slowly rising to the upper 20’s and then falling tonight to the Lower teens. Not much break from the extreme Cold for another week.

Bar.30.30″ and Steady. We will see a brief drop mid week as a Cold Front passes but then another Rise with the reinforcing Cold Siberian air mass holding us in it’s grasp.

Hum.77% and falling a bit as the Wind picks up this morning. We’re watching for how much moisture we have available when the Front comes in Wednesday night.

Wind Calm but then Northwest at 5 to 10. Watch the Wind if we get much if any Shift West or Southwest we will get more Snow. A Southeast shift would likely give us a LOT of Snow.

Sky Partly Cloudy and we will see some Sun today and Tuesday. That will help but not a lot as we are just so Cold,

The Summary, Today…Partly sunny. Cold with highs in the upper 20s. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph.Tonight…Mostly clear. Cold with lows around 12. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph. Wind chill readings 5 to 15.Tuesday…Mostly sunny. Cold with highs in the upper 20s. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph.

Watch out for Wednesday night and Thursday. Stay warm if you can.
