A week starting out with frost and freeze across Middle Tennessee will see the temperature slowly warm up as we go through the week.

High temperatures are expected to climb from the 60s to just above 70 by the end of the week and the weekend.

November is an interesting month that can bring anything from snow to tornadoes across Middle Tennessee. Now that we are back on Central Standard Time, we lose an hour of daylight in the late afternoon with sunset now coming around 4:45 p.m.

The remains of Hurricane Zeta brought lots of rain and wind to the area toward the end of last week.

Rain totals generally ran from one to three inches across the Midstate with a few reports of four inches or more on the Cumberland Plateau.

I am looking into writing books about the weather history of Middle Tennessee such as tornadoes and snowstorms. I would also like to do an autobiography focused as a motivational book describing my life going into a wheelchair at age 6 to becoming certified in weather.
