4/6/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Warm and Sunny today with a strong breeze. Look for 85 degrees with very Low Humidity which will generate a Fire Danger this afternoon. Tonight will be mild and then Wednesday Clouds increase but a dry day before night time storms. We hit 87 yesterday tying the 1967 Record. The record today is also 87 degrees from the year 1967 as well. The Humidity is expected to fall into the 20% range this afternoon. That’s very dry and a fire could easily start in grass or brush with that low a humidity level. There will be a Fire Watch issued today at Noon but don’t be surprised if that gets updated to a Warning with all the strong wind I expect this afternoon. Wednesday night late we could see a squall line come through here but for the time being Storms are not expected to be at Severe Limits. Given our dry air scenario a lack of humidity will hinder storm development. But that could change during the day tomorrow so that Dew Point Temp. will be something to watch in addition to the Barometer. Outdoors this morning it’s so dry we didn’t have any dew. The Owl out back was Hooting away and Missy couldn’t quite know what to make of him. That’s the loudest I think he’s ever been. We Mowed about 25% of the property yesterday and allergies or not we have to hit it some more today. Our temperatures will fall back to more seasonal normals after a cooler Thursday and Friday but looking out towards next week I think we have some more warm weather in store. Now for those facts.

No precip. to report for the period.
Temperature at 7 AM was a mild 62 degrees. We only briefly fell to 60 overnight. Looking for 85 today but we could hit the 87 mark again in spots. Tonight about 62 for the Low.

Barometer is 30.05″ and Steady. It’s wobbled up and down over the last 24 hours but is generally trending lower. Still we are fairly stable for another 24 hours.

Humidity was 68% indicated and I’m not sure my instrument is completely accurate with the current scenario. With the heating of the day look for a 20% Humidity level. That’s more like Arizona than Tennessee.

Wind is Forecast to continue the Southerly flow and speeds in the 20 to 30 mph range are expected.

Sky is Clear and will be mostly Clear with Clouds beginning to creep in tonight.

The Summary, Today: Sunny, with a high near 85. South southwest wind between 10 and 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph.

Tonight: Mostly clear, with a low around 62. South wind between 10 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.

Wednesday: Partly sunny, with a high near 79. South southwest wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph.

Wednesday Night: Showers and thunderstorms. Low around 56. South southwest wind around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%.

The Pollen Count yesterday was 111. Mostly Cedar, Maple and Pine Tree Pollen. That should continue today. One or all of those is killing me and a lot of you as well. It’s always something. Have a good day.
