2/22/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Clouds but Mild Temperatures after a half inch of over night Rainfall. Clouds will persist and after a 53 degree High today the rest of the week looks to be in the 40’s daytime and 20’s at night. We had a taste of Spring over the weekend but now Winter returns. We may even see a few Flurries late Tuesday but we’re hoping for more dry days than wet this week and still I see indications that the Winter pattern is shifting towards Spring. Outdoors here this morning the mud has returned but not as soggy as it has been. We had no encounters with any wildlife and maybe they’re resting because everybody who is anybody was out yesterday. I’m Dog sitting a Miniature Dachshund this week. She’s a city dog and doesn’t know what to make of the Puppy Dog trail but we drug her along. Her name is Jessy and she’s a little bit spoiled and wants to boss Missy and Benji around but we’ll straighten her out. We had her a week last Summer and Missy and her were best buddies by the time she left. Now for the facts.

We duly reported our .50 inches of Rain that all fell between 8 PM last night and 7 AM this morning.
Temperature at 7AM is a comfortable 47 degrees. We likely hit the mid 50’s briefly today but then Colder air returns for the remainder of the week as reality returns. Our brief fling with Springtime was fun.

Barometer is 29.75″ and is Rising from a low of 29.70″ last night. We did hear a couple of rolls of Thunder but fortunately that was all. We may Rise some but not expecting any really Strong stable pressure before the end of the week.

Humidity is 98% and we have moisture at ground level and mid levels today. Still we do expect drying conditions later in the week. Some Counties in North Alabama had Red Flag Fire warnings over the weekend due to dry ground and Winds which promoted a danger of wild fire. It only takes a few days to dry up if conditions are right.

Wind is calm this morning. Our Southerly wind from yesterday will trend West and then Northwest as we start to feel the Colder air.

Sky is Overcast and while we will see some Sun today it’s more Clouds today than Sun. Thursday and Friday will maybe be our Sunny days this week.

The Summary, Today: Slight chance for Rain before noon. Cloudy, with a high near 54. West northwest wind around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

Tonight: Cloudy, with a low around 35. North northwest wind between 5 and 10 mph.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 45. North northwest wind between 5 and 10 mph.

Tuesday Night: A slight chance of flurries after midnight. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 29. North northwest wind around 5 mph.

Still it’s not as Wintry as it’s been so maybe we’re turning the corner. I have a big time eye infection this morning and have to go to the eye doctor. “While I can still see to drive”. It’s always something. have a good day.
