.. Freeze warning remains in effect from midnight tonight to 7 amCST Wednesday...

Freeze watch remains in effect from late Wednesday nightthrough Thursday morning...

A freeze warning remains in effect from midnight tonight to 7 am CST Wednesday. A freeze watch remains in effect from late Wednesday night through Thursday morning. Cold air settling on the area the next couple of days will drop morning low temperatures below freezing. Temperatures Wednesdayand Thursday mornings will likely range from the mid 20s to around30. A freeze warning means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or highly likely. These conditions will kill crops and othersensitive vegetation. A freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures are possible.

Our 7-day forecast is promising warmer weather. It's hard to believe that I consider upper 50's and lower 60's as 'warmer weather'...Autumn has definitely arrived. I will TRY to get some great fall color pictures. Several trees near my home are brilliant.

The latest drought monitor for our area has Putnam County in the Extreme Drought stage. It is called a category D3. The only worse category is D4 Drought that is called Exceptional. You can view this information and much more by clicking here.

Speaking of the lack of rain, we measured .73 from last evening's storms. I checked CoCoRaHS site for Tennessee and thirteen stations in and around Nashville reported 1.50" or more. In my own county, we had a range from .61 up to 1.26" of rain. You can see these rainfall totals by going here and plug in whatever date you like and/or whatever county you want.
