Nice Week Upcoming!

A beautiful week ahead for us here in the Upper Cumberland.  After lows in the 40's overnight on Sunday, we'll see temperatures rise to near 70° for highs on both Monday and Tuesday.  Rain chances for Tuesday night and Wednesday, but temperatures will stay warm.  Expect highs near 70° all week.

We are watching a possible severe weather event for Friday, but it is a long way out...I want to watch a few more model runs before giving you my opinion on possible severe chances.

*Latest, Local Forecast*

Fun Weather Site of The Day
Anthony Watt's "Watts Up With That" was the 2008 Winner of the Best Science Blog of the Year. His blog is packed full of great information that weather nuts and non-weather nuts would appreciate.  My favorite part of his blog is the "How Not To Measure Temperature"...
