Meteorologist Mark’s 5-Day Wx Concerns

Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion

We are in for a stretch of dry and sunny days! If you plan to raise a garden, now is the time to begin planning where you’ll have it and get that ground plowed! You heard it here first! (ha) The ground dries out fast this time of year and I bet most of you will be able to plow that ground by Friday and/or the weekend. Our next chance of rain may not come until next Wednesday, with sunny days and low humidity between here and there. You’re sure to find a plowing opportunity within the next week. We all know rain will return, so get that done while you can.

Just don’t ever plant anything frost-sensitive until at least May 15th. That’s my rule every year.

I’m not one to talk about extended outlooks, especially for this time of year, but all indications are that temps will be very warm for much of the eastern US next week. This is a temperature outlook for March 8 -12. Notice how very warm temps get across parts of the Upper Midwest. That is sure to melt any snow they have around. Normally, warm temps can spell severe weather troubles for us in March, but so far there are no strong indications for that.

One can’t help but notice all that cold air out West…. We’ll have bouts of cold air between now and summer, as always.

1980- Temperature at Nashville drops to 2 degrees, setting a record low for the month. Likewise, Clarksville’s 0 degrees establishes a new low mark for March, and Crossville’s reading of -2 degrees is also a record.
