3/19/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

The Clear Sky and Light Frost is a significant change from the last week of Clouds and today we manage to approach 70 deg. for our High. More Southerly winds will give us a milder night and Warmer Saturday with late Rain chances. That late Saturday Rain chance will possibly be more like Sunday morning and some Thunder may be associated with that so be forewarned. Tomorrow is the first day of Spring and the Spring Storm Season. However this is the last day of Winter and we have for a couple of days at least a chance to do some Spring stuff. Monday may be on the cold side but from here on in usually the cold snaps are shorter and shorter. Outdoors this morning we had little puppy dog paw prints in the light layer of Frost but the Sun is rising on a mostly clear day. The cold night and evaporating frost will aid in the ongoing drying process and maybe folks can work the soil some today and Saturday. Missy jumped her self a Rabbit this morning and we managed to catch some of our herd of Deer grazing in the meadow close to the wood line. The time change hasn’t filtered down to the Deer I guess. So…things are looking up weather wise. Now for the facts.

We had a empty Rain gauge this morning.
Temperature was a chilly 31 deg. at 7AM but after Sun Rise we’ll be in the 60’s by late morning and near if not at 70 by 3 PM. The shift in the Wind will likely not allow us to be quite as chilly tonight. However here we typically have cold nights through most of April and we can deal with that if we can just have some Sunny warmer days.

Barometer is 30.05″ today and Steady for the last 24 hours. We will see a drop Saturday afternoon but mostly Stable for the next 36 hours anyway and we’ll take all we can get.

Humidity is 98% from the over night condensation but we’ll be dry today and Saturday. Expecting more moisture Sunday and Monday.

Wind is calm early but trending West and then Southerly by later today. Speeds in the 5 to 10 today and maybe a shade on the breezy side Saturday.

The Summary, Today: Sunny, with a high near 70. Calm wind becoming west southwest around 5 mph.

Tonight: Mostly clear, with a low around 43. Calm wind becoming south around 5 mph.

Saturday: Partly sunny, with a high near 71. South wind between 5 and 10 mph.

Saturday Night: A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 50. Calm wind becoming southeast around 5 mph.

We’re planting Onions today, about 3 weeks late but it’s looking like that kind of year around here for now anyway. I predict the Spring season will be shifting into a higher gear in a couple of weeks. But as far as the Calendar goes tomorrow is the first day of Spring after a very rough Winter for 09 and 2010. Now you get out and move around some. Have a good day.
