Frost chances returned to Middle Tennessee this week, so we hope you are protecting those flowers as temperatures dip into the mid to upper 30s. The high temperatures for the middle of the week will only be in the low-to-mid 60s, but it should warm back up into the low 70s by Friday. No major rain systems are coming this week and no threat of severe weather.

Did you know that the National Weather Service can visit your classroom and talk with your students via the Internet? An NWS meteorologist can have a virtual visit with your students in your classroom. Go to this website to sign up and read more information on how to schedule your virtual visit

I expect a good warming trend to return to the midstate beginning on April 25 and continue for the remainder of April, forecasting temperatures will soar into the 70s.
