4/21/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

A few Fair Weather Clouds today and Temperatures are heading to the mid 70’s this afternoon and down to the mid 40’s tonight. Thursday and Friday begins a period of unsettled weather and then Storms on Saturday. I don’t think we will have a lot of Rain Thursday or Friday as a Warm Front passes over but maybe we can at least start to build up some moisture in advance of a Cold Front due in here Saturday. The Storm Prediction Center is leaning toward some possible severe weather this weekend but we need Rain never the less. The weekend will be totally impacted by unsettled weather but most folks around here are willing to make the sacrifice. Outdoors here today we have a good amount of Dew and some counties are having Fog problems and our morning Humidity reading is up so we are already beginning to build up some lower level moisture. The ground here has cracks in some places over a inch and a half wide and the stepping stones leading from the deck are loose from where the earth has contracted. This kind of dryness is unusual for April. This time last year it was so wet we were having Slime Mold problems on the Front Lawn. We didn’t see any critters today but the Birds are merrily singing away in the morning Sun as we head back towards home. Now the facts.

We did not report any Rain today. That’s 12 zero days in a row and the last “Significant” Rain was March 28. So much for April showers. We have a chance to make all that up this weekend.
Temperature at 7AM is 43 degrees. Look for 74 or so today and about 45 or so tonight.

Barometer is 29.95% and has steadied some after a Fall yesterday. Don’t look for much strong pressure for a few days and a good dip expected Saturday.

Humidity is 95% but dropping as we warm up. Still all in all Humidity is Rising.

Wind is calm but looks West or Northwest for the next 24 hours.

Sky is mostly clear but we have some high level Cirrus and will see some Cumulus later but no Rainmakers today. More Sun than Clouds today for sure.

The Summary, Today: Mostly sunny, with a high near 74. Calm wind becoming west northwest between 5 and 10 mph.

Tonight: Partly cloudy, with a low around 45. Northwest wind around 5 mph becoming calm.

Thursday: A 30 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 75. Calm wind becoming west southwest between 5 and 10 mph.

Maybe we are nearing the end of this dry spell. Have a good day.
