4/29/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Sun and A Quick Warm Up this morning as a Southerly Wind Flow streams into Middle Tennessee. High today near 80 degrees. That South wind builds moisture and by Friday afternoon Rain Chances. Heavy Rain on Saturday. Those Rain chances will combine Saturday with a destabilizing Jet Stream and give us some possible Strong Storms but still Modeling Programs at the NWS are not in complete agreement. This time of year the best thing to do is have that NOAA Weather Radio turned on and listen for Alerts for your area. Out doors here today it is warming up fast and we got a lot on our plate but likely not going to get it all done today. Stressing doesn’t help so we’ll just tackle one thing at a time. Now for the facts.

No Rain for the last 24 hours and we have one more dry day ahead.
Temp. at 7 AM was 47 degrees and you can feel a lot more warmth building this morning. Look for 79 or 80 today.

Barometer is Steady at 30.05″ and maybe not going to Rise much more. A drop is predicted Friday and Saturday. Maybe not as steep a drop as last Saturday but some likely Heavy Rain and possible Thunder Showers or Storms.

Humidity is 98% early but will burn off in the heat of the day. But upper air is increasing in moisture as evidenced b Cirrus overspreading this afternoon.

Wind has firmly set up from South and Southwest at 5 to 10 today.

Sky is clear today but some Fair Weather Cumulus expected and some High Thin Cirrus this afternoon will filter the Sun a bit. Still a mostly Sunny Day.

The Summary, Today: Sunny, with a high near 80. South wind between 5 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph.

Tonight: Partly cloudy, with a low around 57. South wind between 5 and 10 mph.

Friday: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1pm. Partly cloudy, with a high near 84. South wind between 10 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph.

A good chance of heavy Rain over the weekend. We may make up our deficit for Rainfall. I was thinking our dry weather wouldn’t last. Stay abreast of changing conditions Friday through Sunday, it’s a wacky time of the year. Have a good one.
