Looks Like a Great Week

Matt Ross @ 12:00 AM


Today will be a beautiful day with sunny skies and afternoon highs in the low 70s. A brilliant day for the National's home opener(see more below). Other than some showers possible Wednesday night into Thursday morning, the next 5-6 days look wonderful and dry with highs in the low 70s. Average highs this week are in the mid to upper 60s.


Stats don't always tell the story. Saturday on paper looked mostly innocuous with a high of 65 and an average temperature of just 1 degree below normal. As we know, it was an absolutely wretched, raw day with the high occurring just after midnight and afternoon temps in the low 40s with steady rain. Sunday, on the other hand, came in at 7 degrees colder than Saturday, yet saw a wonderful afternoon with temps in the mid and upper 50s feeling quite a bit warmer under the strong April sun. Stats help tell the story, but nothing can adequately replace our first hand recollection and experiences.

Nasa is sending a spacecraft to the Moon in late 2008 to look for water. This will commence an almost decade long series of unmanned missions to the Moon to study the surface in preparation for a manned mission to follow.

Tennessee seems to be ground zero this year for severe weather. Less than a week after two dozen were killed from tornadic activity, a dozen people died on Friday from another severe weather outbreak near Nashville. It will be interesting to see how much severe weather is a factor in our weather over the next few months.
