Cold Sunday Morning...

We awake to temperatures in the lower 20's and a nice coating of snow on the ground.  I've measured one-half (.5) inch of accumulation.

There is a slight chance for snow flurries for today...although, the sun is doing it's best to come out as I post.

Severe Weather Awareness Week...
February 22-27 has been designated as Severe Weather Awareness Week in Tennessee.  A pdf copy of the brochure is available on the Nashville National Weather Service Website. 

Today, Sunday, February 22nd is designated as Skywarn Day. Trained spotters come from all walks of life and are a tremendous help to the National Weather Service. Storm Spotters are the 'eyes and ears' on the ground. Sometimes radar can't tell the whole story, but the spotters can! Tom Johnstone with the NWS-Nashville is the person who goes out and trains groups of people on how to spot storms. If your group would like to be trained, call Tom at 615-754-4634.
