Rain and dense fog in the valley this morning; we're back to our discussion from a couple of weeks ago about perfect British weather. 

For all you fellow UT grads on the board it reminds me of a semester in undergrad.  I had an 8:00 AM class in Ayres Hall and at the time there was some guy a couple of times a week who was playing his bagpipes close enough to the building that you could just make out the notes.  There was something about sitting in that old place (it was long before the renovation) on a cool, foggy morning and hearing the music from those pipes come up the hill.  ...yeah, that's it, I'm surrendering and turning on some Scottish music this morning.

Certainly a British Isle feel here this morning.  Rain is falling and locked in dense fog.  51 at the break of dawn. 

Forecast calls for a 50% chance of showers??  Looking at this morning's radar, I'd say 100% would be a better forecast.

Typical, interesting east TN weather.  Not even a breeze blowing here, but there's a wind advisory in mountains.  Chattanooga has winds gusting to 30 mph, currently.

If you don't like the weather in east Tennessee, drive 5 miles.

Start of the Memphis marathon delayed this morning by 45 minutes. That call was made yesterday. It does appear the last of the activity is moving out, although there is a TOR about an hour south in N MS.

Iíll be starting the half in about 50 minutes.

Oh by the way, happy first day of meteorological winter. :)

Rain has stopped, fog has lifted, and the sun is peaking out.  Temperatures have soared to near 60 already.
