2/9/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Rain and gray sky this morning but the Snow washed away and it’s 40 degrees here in the Southern Region of Middle Tennessee. It may cool down later but no Ice problems anticipated here. There is Snow and Ice North and West of Murfreesboro. This is one of those occasions where the line dividing the warmer and colder air is very evident. Just 45 miles away from here there is a 12 degree temperature difference. That line may slowly creep our way but likely the precipitation will move on away as well. There may be some slick spots this evening however so common sense which is sometimes in short supply will be necessary. The Forecast from Nashville is not very accurate for the Southern Region this morning but the last 12 hours or so have been “complicated” by a pocket of unpredictable warm air that over took the southern counties. Shelbyville briefly had a inch of Snow last night that totally disappeared before bed time last night. I don’t think it was on the ground long enough to be counted into the record. I’m not sure what the rule is. That may be a good question for Mr. Troutman at the NWS in Nashville. Outdoors here is a mess this morning. The ground is so soft that our Cast Iron Lawn Furniture in the yard is sinking into the ground. The Puppy Dog Trail is closed because of High Water and mud. Even the Birds are staying out of sight this morning. We ‘re still hoping for a break and some Sun on Wednesday and Thursday. Friday thru Sunday has Rain and or Snow chances. This is some more rough Winter this year. Now for the facts.

We reported .76″ of Rain for the last 24 hours. Some of that fell as Snow but is melted now.
Temp.40deg. and Falling. We likely have had our High. Looking like mid 20’s tonight.

Bar.29.80″ and steady now. Look for a rise as the current Low pressure center moves toward the Northeast. The East coast will be getting a double barrel attack from our Low pressure and a second one coming up the Eastern Seaboard. Tough Winter for those guys as well.

Hum.100% and we are off the Scale. Not much improvement anticipated.

Wind NW 5mph and will be gusty later.

Sky Overcast w/Rain and no Sun today.

The Summary, Today: Rain before noon, then a chance of very light snow. High near 40 early then Falling. West wind between 10 and 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. Little or no snow accumulation expected. Tonight: A 20 percent chance of snow. Cloudy, with a low around 24. West northwest wind between 15 and 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. Wednesday: Partly sunny, with a high near 36. North northwest wind between 15 and 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. Wednesday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 21. North northwest wind between 5 and 10 mph.

The story just doesn’t change. This Wintry mess is getting old. Have a good day indoors.
