3/25/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

After a 4 AM Thunderstorm and a heavy Rain shower hitting about 8:30 this morning we’ll be Cloudy and breezy before another round of Thunderstorms later this afternoon. Temperatures should mid 60’s today. After a rainy night, clearing on Friday but expect temperatures to be 10 or 15 degrees cooler. Warming up again on Saturday as we see yet another round of Showers and Thunderstorms Saturday night and Sunday. The Storm early this morning was not Severe but did have a good deal of Lightening here in Northwest Bedford County. Some folks in counties West of here had some small Hail but less than the required 1 inch to be classified as Severe. Not much wind in these early showers but that’s expected to pickup as we see the pressure gradient tighten up today. Outdoors today looks socked in so we didn’t make our trek. Missy wasn’t too sure she even wanted to step outside after the Thunder this morning but she ventured out just long enough for the required activities. Benji followed her but he wasn’t in much of a hurry either. Now for the facts.

We reported .27″ of Rain which fell between 3:45 this morning and 7 AM. It was still raining at observation and a heavy rain shower is on the Radar moving our way.
Temperature at 7AM was 50 degrees in spite of the Rain. Our relatively warm night allowed our early Storms to develop and stay together.

Barometer is 29.90″ and Falling. Look for a slow drop through the day as a Cold Front approaches. We get a bump up on Friday but then another system will approach.

Humidity is indicating 95% but for all intents and purposes it is 100%. We have a good deal of moisture at all levels so whatever rain is generated will fall all the way to ground today.

Wind is South at 5 mph this morning but expect 15 to 20 or even some 30 mph gust later. After the Front passes late tonight Winds shift more Northwesterly.

Sky is Cloudy today and tonight but slowly clearing on Friday and Saturday should be Sunny for a good deal of the day.

The Summary, Today: Showers and thunderstorms. High near 66. South wind between 10 and 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%.

Tonight: Showers and thunderstorms before 1am, then a chance of showers. Low around 42. South southwest wind around 15 mph becoming northwest. Winds could gust as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%.

Friday: Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 55. North northwest wind between 10 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph.

We all wanted Spring to get here and this is most definitely Spring weather. I hope we soon see a bit more Sun. Keep your NOAA Weather Radio’s handy today. Have a good one.
