Wisconsin Weather Update for June 20, 2007.

By: HaleStorm , 11:51 AM GMT on June 20, 2007

Good Wednesday morning!
This is Steve with the extended weekend update and hopefully all of you are having a good work week so far. We spent the last four days in sunny and very hot Nashville! The main reason for going to Nashville Friday morning was my friends Chad and Jessica's wedding. I was a groomsman for the Jewish outdoor wedding on Sunday, which was really neat to be a part of. It was very hot in the black tux though (it hit 95 degrees on Sunday!) Many of my college friends also made the trip so it was great seeing all of them again.

As long as we were already there, we spent an extra couple days just checking out the sites, such as Lower Broadway (where all the best country bars are), the Country Music Hall of Fame, Studio B, Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, and the Opry Mills Mall, Gaylord Opryland Resort, and the Grand Ole Opry Museum. But as great as the trip was, we're also glad to be home with Bryce again, who spent the extended weekend with his Grandma John (Nia, Lisa's mom).

Spring 2007 Playoff Final Point Standings
In the closest finish in Weather Update game history, we have a four-way tie for first place! While it is tempting to have a four-way playoff for the championship, the rules stated at the beginning of the season that in the event of a tie, whoever has the most points in the regular season wins it all. So by four regular season points, rookie Brian F. has won the Spring 2007 Season!

Just how close was this thing? If Becky and her dad would have answered "A" for Rather game #2 on Thursday, they would have won. If Angie would have said Bride or Groom for Outburst on Wednesday, she would have won. If Katie/Bart score just ONE more point in the regular season, they would have won. Here's how the final standings look:
