4/2/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Sunny Day and Warm Temperature bordering on Hot, at least for this time of year. We hit 84 yesterday and anticipate slightly less than that today. Lots of Sun maybe a few Clouds this afternoon. Rain Saturday and Sun for Easter. That Rain event Saturday will be a fast mover and by Sunday and Easter Sun and upper 70’s for the High. The above average temperatures hang on until Thursday when we return to more seasonal temperatures. “Normal” for this week in April is 67 degrees for the High and 43 degrees for the Low. We’re getting to the point where even normal isn’t to bad. Outdoors we have the fullness of Springtime. Freshly mowed grass, all the Birds singing, Bunny Rabbits scampering around and the Trees are leafing out nicely now. I hope the tree pollen lets up soon however. The trek to the barn is just a brief stroll now but we remember all those Dark Winter mornings when it was barely passable. Our big Red Lawn Tractor fired up without a problem after 3 months of downtime and it was good to be cutting some grass again but it sure was a Hot start to the season. Usually the first couple of times you have to wear a jacket. I’m betting we still have some cool spells but no danger of Snow or Ice for awhile. And if you thought all that Cold Weather would help kill off some of the Bugs, I got Ticks off me last night and we already had our annual Ant breakout in the kitchen window. Those critters are tough. Now for the facts.

No Rain for the period.
Temperature was 50 deg. at 7AM but you had to look fast because it’s rising quickly. Look for about 82 and then mid 50’s with the Clouds and Shower chances this evening.

Barometer is 30.05″ and Steady for the moment. We see a brief Dip tonight.

Humidity is 70% early and will drop in the heat of the day. Upper air is going to pick up moisture by evening and Saturday will be wet.

Wind is Southeast at 2 mph this morning. Look for 10 to 15 mph and maybe some breezy gust in the afternoon. We stay with that Southerly for a few days and enjoy the resulting warm temps.

Sky is Clear but some Clouds likely later today and most of Saturday may be Cloudy but Sun returns for Easter Sunday.

The Summary, Today: Mostly sunny, with a high near 82. South wind between 5 and 15 mph.

Tonight: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 55. South wind between 5 and 10 mph.

Saturday: Showers and thunderstorms likely before 1pm, then a chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 73. South southwest wind between 5 and 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 49. South southeast wind around 5 mph becoming calm.

We have yet another fine Spring Day so do something you been in the Cabin All Winter! Have a good one.
