Nice Weekend Here (In Tennessee!)

The weather map above has several interesting features.  First, it's all quiet here in Middle Tennessee.  Secondly, a stationary front covers central Florida.  Rain is expected up the Carolina coast.   Rain is also expected ahead of a front from the Dakotas southwest to New Mexico.  Behind the front, HEAVY SNOW IS LIKELY for mountains of Wyoming and heavy snow is possible in Montana, Idaho, and higher elevations of Utah.  This is the first major winter storm of the autumn season in the U.S.

Back here in Tennessee, as I said, we'll have calm weather with highs in the 80's this weekend.  Those temperatures are above average for our area.
