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

Clouds are Lowering and Gusty Winds with our continued Warm Temperatures today. Look for about 78 degrees this afternoon. Tonight after mid night a round of Strong Storms and much Cooler Thursday and Friday. Saturday we warm back into the low 70’s. After tonight and early Thursday we should be dry again for 4 or 5 days with warm temperatures returning on Saturday through Tuesday. However maybe not in the 80’s like this week. Tonight the most severe threat is for West Tennessee where their is likely a bit more instability but as always that could shift Eastward. Still the is a strong possibility of straight line winds and lightening with heavy rain showers in some of the stronger cells. The dynamics of this may change during the day so check the weather tonight and have your NOAA Weather Alert Radio set to go. Outdoors here this morning after a warm night spent well in the 60’s we have yet again no dew but fast moving Clouds are thickening up. The Pollen is thick and a light coating of yellow dust is on most exposed surfaces. I’m hoping we can wash some of that out of the air tonight. Now for the facts.

No Rain for the previous 24 hours ending at 7 AM.
Temperature at 7AM is 63 degrees. I believe that was the Low over night as well. Yesterday for the 2nd day in a row we tied the record High of 87 degrees. Today with Clouds and all this Wind look for 78 to 80. Warm again tonight but after the Rain clears out Thursday look for mid to low 60’s on Thursday and after Clearing out completely Friday a Frost chance Friday night and Saturday morning.

Barometer is 29.90″ and Falling in advance of a strong Cold Front. We rebound by Friday and are likely stable until Tuesday.

Humidity is 75% this morning. That will drop as we warm up but ultimately Dew Points will be into the 60’s this afternoon. We’ll be watching those because if they creep closer to 70 degrees their is a likelihood of Stronger Storms.

Wind is South at 8 mph at observation time but we have had numerous 20 to 25 mph gust. These will persist today. We see a Northwest trend behind the Front but return Southwest by Sunday.

Sky is Partly Cloudy this morning but Clouds will be on the increase.

The Summary, Today: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 79. South southwest wind between 10 and 20 mph, with gusts as high as 35 mph.

Tonight: Showers and thunderstorms. Low around 56. South southwest wind between 10 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%.

Thursday: Showers and thunderstorms likely before 1pm, then a chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 63. West northwest wind between 10 and 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%.

We have a chance for the strongest Storms of this young Spring Season tonight so stay aware and be prepared. Maybe we can wash some of this Pollen away. Have a good day.
