2/18/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Sunshine and Blue Sky this morning as we head to a High near 45 degrees. After another Cold Night we anticipate getting very close to 50 degrees on Friday. Rain chances slip back in Friday night and maybe some Flurries. The Weekend and thru Monday has Rain chances. There may be some slight Snow chances during those evening hours but we don’t see any “Snow Storms” on the horizon for the moment. I choose to enjoy today and Friday for the moment and get a few late Winter chores done before the mud returns. My Brother In Law is going to be out of town for 10 days or so starting Saturday and I’ll be feeding and looking after his Horses so it would be nice if we could have some mild dry weather but I’m not betting on it. Outdoors here this morning along the Puppy Dog Trail we discovered those Big Dog tracks again and my little Missy trailed them all the way to our Fence line. We have a visitor coming by apparently overnight before the mud freezes and from the depth of the paw print and the size of it he or she is a good size fellow. The Gold Finches have once again staked out the Bird Feeder but from time to time the Red Cardinals manage to get in for awhile. I tossed some seed out down the trail and the Blue Birds generally head for that. I don’t know why they don’t seem to be welcome at the feeder. I don’t see or hear the Geese this morning and maybe that particular group has moved on North a few miles. I fully expect a new group in soon. Now for the facts.

We’re proud to say we did not report any precipitation for the previous 24 hours.
Temperature at 7AM was 23 degrees. We dropped to 22 just as the Sun was coming up but we’re on the Rise now. Look for two days in the mid to upper 40’s. We have not had a 50 degree reading the entire month and maybe we can get that in on Friday.

Barometer is 30.15″ and Steady now. We have 24 to 36 hours of stable pressure before a Low comes in from the Northwest. And of course our dry spell will end.

Humidity is 85% and dropping in the morning Sun. We will not dry up a lot but we’ll take what we can get.

Wind is Calm this morning but expect Northwest at 10 mph or so later.

Sky is Clear and while we may well see some Clouds this afternoon expect lots more Sun than Clouds today.

The Summary, Today: Mostly sunny, with a high near 44. Northwest wind between 5 and 10 mph.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 24. Northwest wind around 5 mph becoming calm.

Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 49. Calm wind becoming west southwest around 5 mph.

Friday Night: A slight chance of rain and snow after midnight. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 33. Northwest wind around 5 mph becoming calm. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

Those Snow chances Friday night likely won’t effect us much here in the Southern Region. Enjoy today and Friday.
