2/15/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Sun and a few Clouds this morning and we have just under a inch of Snow plus some under lying ice on the ground. Cold today and maybe a scattered Snow Shower but not a lot more expected. Clouds tonight and about 15 degrees. Tuesday we may see some Sun but still some pockets of Cloudy weather and maybe a Flurry from time to time. We may get above Freezing Tuesday and we warm up as the week progresses. Outdoors here this morning was not nearly as difficult as we expected. The Snow isn’t very deep and the footing is firm from the frozen ground. Ice is slippery however and the Sun we’re getting for the moment can enhance that slipperiness, so be careful. The trek to the Barn today was quite and uneventful but Missy was in a hurry because her little feet were getting Cold. Benji found a dry spot under my old truck and he just observed the world from there until we returned. The hard surfaces have about a inch of Snow but the ground has just under a inch. Fortunately the Rain falling at bedtime last night must have turned to Snow quickly and the wires and tree limbs don’t appear to be under a strain. Now for the facts.

We are reporting .15 inches of precipitation melted from the gauge and .8″ of Snow.
Temperature at 7 AM is 18 degrees here but rising some as the Sun is breaking through now. We should be in the upper 20’s today and mid teens tonight.

Barometer is 29.80″ and Rising this morning behind the Front that passed through over night. We have some occasional Clouds and maybe Flurries on the backside of this Front but generally improving conditions.

Humidity is 80% and dropping in the cold dry air but we have a lot of moisture on the ground.

Wind is SW at 1mph early this morning and looks to be generally Westerly and maybe 10 to 15 mph later.

Sky is Partly Cloudy with a good bit of Sun this morning here. Clouds and Sun today.

The Summary, Presidents’ Day: Snow showers ending. Cloudy, with a high near 29. West wind around 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

Tonight: A 20 percent chance of snow flurries. Cloudy, with a low around 15. West wind between 5 and 10 mph.

Tuesday: Scattered flurries. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 34. West northwest wind between 5 and 15 mph.

The kids missed a perfectly good Snow Day due to the Holiday but I’m sure a lot of them will be out Tuesday as well. Be careful and stay home if you can. Have a good day.
