Very Nice Days Ahead!

If you enjoyed yesterday's weather, you'll love today, Friday, and Saturday. I expect we'll be another 8-10 degrees warmer today than Wednesday while it was 18° warmer Wednesday than on Tuesday! The warming trend is in full swing! Highs will be around 62° under a mostly sunny sky with a southerly wind that may gust as high as 25 mph.

*Latest, Local Forecast*

The weather map shows snow, much of it heavy in the Rocky Mountain areas of the west. Also, heavy snow is expected north of the Great Lakes in Canada just below Hudson Bay. Rain and Thunderstorms are expected for the northern California coast. A Bermuda high will keep us nice and quiet in Middle TN through at least Saturday night!

On this date in 1960, Crossville (just to our east) drops to -2°. In 1998, melting hailstones from a thunderstorm in Louisiana create an eerie scene as a fog developed in the warm air.

Don't forget, we turn our clocks ahead 1 hour this upcoming Saturday night (before you go to bed) or Sunday at 2 a.m., if for some reason, you might be up!

March Madness (recruiting month) continues for CoCoRaHS! For more information about this great program, please go to the CoCoRaHS website. My local newspaper will be doing an article on this coming up in the next week or so. I will be sure to link to it.
