2/24/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

We have Sun here this morning with some Clouds on the Southeast Horizon but that is heading away from us. Still a few scattered pockets of Clouds on the Satellite but we expect the Sun to push us to 40 degrees today. Tonight with a few Clouds but generally clearing we’ll be Cold but Dry. The next several days should be dry and with a Northwest Wind I expect the dampness to give way and some over due outdoor chores will be on a lot of “to do” list. There are however a few pockets of Low Pressure drifting generally in our direction over the next day or so that could bring us some Clouds or a sprinkle or two but I’m just throwing that in there so you’ll not be surprised. For the most part I think we have 4 or 5 dry days ahead. Outdoors this morning with firm ground and some frost the Sun came up “suddenly” and this little part of the world became alive. Geese have returned to the Pond next door and I noticed this morning that when the large Geese are flying around and honking loudly the smaller birds go to the ground and just stand around. I think some of the honking is to warn the smaller birds to get out of the way so there won’t be any “mid-air” collisions. Maybe airliners need to blow there horns. That’s just my observation. Now for the facts.

We did not report any precipitation for the past 24 hours.
Temperature at 7AM was 24 degrees. Within 45 minutes we had risen into the 30’s and we hit 40 today. About 23 tonight.

Barometer is up to 29.95″ and trying to rise. There are some pockets of Low pressure that will likely prevent a big increase for at least another 24 hours.

Humidity is 90% and will be decreasing over the next few days.

Wind is Calm early on but picking up where it left off at Northwest and maybe 5 to 15 mph today.

Sky is Partly cloudy but the partly part is generally on the southern horizon. Still we see some Clouds and Sun today and Thursday more Sun than Clouds.

The Summary, Today: A slight chance of flurries before noon. Partly cloudy, with a high near 40. Northwest wind between 10 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph.

Tonight: Partly cloudy, with a low around 23. North northwest wind between 5 and 15 mph.

Thursday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 40. Northwest wind between 10 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.

This is Severe Weather Awareness Week and today’s emphasis is Tornado’s. There will be a State Wide Drill at 9 AM. It’s only a drill Karla but I know you don’t like Tornado’s. Have a good day.
