Today’s Thoughts: Five Years. Today is our five-year wedding anniversary! Our wedding on July 20, 2002 was the very first wedding at the new First English Lutheran Church (North Site) here in Appleton. It really doesn't seem like it has been that long since we had our friends and family trek up to Appleton for our wedding, but a lot sure has changed since that special day! Five years ago today, we lived in a Menasha apartment with our 1-year-old dog Kozmo and few years old cat Savannah, I had been working at AAL/Thrivent Financial for a year and a half, Lisa was right about to start her new job at HumanaDental (she started the Monday after our wedding!), and it had been exactly 2 1/2 years since our first date (yeah, we planned it out that way ). Weatherwise, it was a partly sunny and very warm day with a high of 86, but it actually hit 99 degrees the day after our wedding, which was the hottest day of the entire year, so the weather for our outdoor pictures could have been much worse had the heat arrived one day earlier! But anyway, it has been a terrific five years, we now have a house in Appleton and a two-year-old son Bryce, and I can't wait to see what happens in the next five years, and beyond. And honey - I love you!
Today’s Holiday: Ugly Truck Contest Day (seriously, you can't make stuff like this up!)
Today’s Forecast Grade: A
Now: At 6am with sunshine, temps are only in the lower 40s north and lower 50s central and south.
Synopsis: With the cool, dry northerly winds we had yesterday, it felt more like a nice day in early October and not mid- July. The forecast for the next seven days looks fairly uneventful thanks to a large area of high pressure in the midwest. However, after the slow-moving high pressure system moves off to our east, the winds will shift and come from the south, meaning a heat wave may be in store for us next week, which could even bring temperatures back to near 90 by Wednesday and Thursday.
Today: Partly cloudy, highs lower 70s north, 74 central, and mid- 70s south.
Tonight: Partly cloudy and cool with a very good chance of kids dressing up as Gryffindors from Hogwarts for midnight parties everywhere, lows mid- 40s north, near 50 central and south.
Saturday: Mostly sunny, highs mid- to upper 70s. Water for your lawn ain't comin' from no clouds this weekend.
Sunday: Partly cloudy, highs near or just above 80.
Monday: Partly sunny with a passing storm possible. Highs 79-84. Chance of rain 25%.
Tuesday: Partly sunny, another isolated shower or thunderstorm possible. Highs 82-87. Chance of rain 20%.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy, highs 84-89.
Other City Forecasts:
This Weekend in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota: Sunshine all weekend, highs upper 70s today, mid- 80s tomorrow and near 90 on Sunday.
This Weekend in Evansville, Indiana: Sunshine all weekend, highs low to mid- 80s.
This Weekend in League City and Pearland, Texas: Just the opposite - scattered thunderstorms all weekend, highs upper 80s. This has been your forecast for how many straight weeks now?
Through 9 am...scattered showers and thunderstorms will become more numerous across the area. Locally heavy rainfall will be possible as rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour is likely in the strongest storms.
This Weekend in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina: An isolated afternoon storm possible each day, otherwise partly cloudy, highs lower 90s today and tomorrow and upper 80s Sunday. Highs in the upper 90s today away from the coast.
