Post #1000 Today (Big Changes Ahead Again)

Waking up to fog this morning and a Dense Fog Advisory for much of Middle TN through 9 o'clock this morning.  Visibility could be reduced to as little as 1/8 of a mile.  Drive safely and slow down.

THE WEATHER AHEAD
Highs today near 53° with a chance for rain.  Temperatures fall only slightly tonight, but then rise as we head into Friday.  There is a chance for thunderstorms.  BIG CHANGES are on the way for the weekend as a strong cold front moves in on Saturday and drops temperatures quickly.  Snow chances on Saturday night and Sunday.  Highs Monday struggle to reach freezing.

*Latest, Local Forecast*

CHRISTMAS WEATHER
Continuing to check modeling for the Christmas Eve/Christmas Day weather and will discuss this further over the next few days!

THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS SITE
When this weather blog was started nearly two years ago, I didn't have any thoughts of just where it would go.  But here we are 1000 posts & more than 40,000 visitors later having the best month (viewers wise) ever.  To think that people like USA TODAY, Reuters, and Chicago Sun-Times would pick up my work never crossed my mind.  To all of you who've told me countless times how much you enjoy reading this, a HUGE THANK-YOU!   To all the people I've 'met' from e-mail, comments, and other weather websites, you all have inspired me with your work and (mostly) positive feedback!  I will continue trying to bring the best weather information possible.

Thanks Eddie! I am glad to be associated with you, too. Your weather knowledge is incredible and you are an example (with your faith) to me.

Hey David...I was thinking about you and your wife a few days ago. I hope both of you are feeling great and enjoying the Christmas season. I look at your rainfall totals (since we live so close to each other) whenever I have rain in my gauge! Lets talk soon.
