2/13/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Clouds and a bit of a Northwest Wind and we’re seeking a High of 38 degrees by this afternoon. We likely see some Sun today then a Low of 28 over night with a Dusting of Snow. Rain Sunday turns to Snow by nightfall. The accumulation Sunday night into Monday could be a couple of inches but just how much you get could vary. For the time being this doesn’t look like a major Snow maker and Lows from the Northwest usually aren’t here in Tennessee. In these parts it’s the Southern Lows that bring Deep Snows. We narrowly missed a big one yesterday. The Trail today was mostly quite but Missy was smelling a lot of activity that may have preceded us. The Wildlife is mostly out of sight this morning. The Cows across the road are ripping into a few round hay bales and making a bit of noise but nothing significant going on this morning. For the most part this will be a calm Winters Day and the approaching Weather will be less of a hazard than the Ice Event of a couple of weeks ago. Monday is a Holiday so even the Schools will maybe be spared a “Snow Day.” Now for the facts.

We were grateful to not have any precipitation to report for the previous 24 hours.
Temp.26deg and we will be warmer today at 38 or so. Not as Cold tonight with a 28 degree Low. Sunday we get up to 39 and then the cool down turns our Rain into Snow by nightfall.

Bar.30.00″ and Falling Slowly as a Cold Front approaches. Look for Low unstable pressure through Monday.

Hum.75% and the Air is slightly more Dry here but a more West to Southwest wind is expected later today that will supply the humidity for our Rain and Snow event.

Wind NW 5mph and the Wind will later today trend West to eventually Southwest but only 5 to 10 mph. No “Blizzard Conditions” like you may have seen on TV the last few days.

Sky Overcast but some Sunny breaks today before Clouds thicken this afternoon. Clouds for Sunday and maybe most of Monday.

The Summary, Today: Mostly sunny, with a high near 38. Northwest wind between 5 and 15 mph.

Tonight: A 40 percent chance of snow after midnight. Increasing clouds, with a low around 28. West northwest wind around 5 mph becoming calm. Little or no snow accumulation expected.

Sunday: Rain and snow, becoming all rain after noon. High near 39. South southwest wind between 5 and 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

Sunday Night: Rain and snow, becoming all snow after midnight. Low around 26. West wind between 5 and 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%.

And this advisory from the National Weather Service.
