Looks like above normal precipitation will continue this week across Middle Tennessee. 

The state had some amazing amounts of rainfall from Feb. 4-6. Eight inches fell in Moore County near the Lynchburg area; seven inches in Sequatchie County; and six and one-half inches in Putnam County. Five-six inches was common in most areas of Middle Tennessee with serious flooding in many places.

Three or four days this week will have a chance of rain. High temperatures are expected to be in the 50s from Feb. 15-20.

We do not have to worry about measuring snow very often in Middle Tennessee but this week I thought I would tell you the official tips for doing this. 

Do not measure under a tree or near any objects. Stick a ruler or yardstick straight down into the snow until It just touches ground but do not jab it into the ground. Take about four-six measurements and then average the total. 

I love receiving precipitation totals and storm reports from you so email me anytime.
