Beautiful Day for a Parade!


We sure lucked out, didn’t we? Mother Nature is playing nice by offering up some beautiful weather for Viking Fest weekend. Can you believe it’s here already?? Unfortunately I won’t be able to go today…I’m going to watch my foreign exchange student from Tanzania, Africa play soccer at Bethel High School, but this isn’t just ANY soccer game…if CK wins this one they go on to state!

So hopefully you have something planned for today that takes you outside, because it’s going to be a warm one! High’s are expected to soar into the 70s, though if you’re hanging around the water you can expect temperatures to be a bit cooler, likely staying in the 60s. But the sky condition will remain the same: mostly sunny.

Tomorrow looks just as nice with mostly sunny skies and highs in the 70s.

And wouldn’t you know it! Monday has certainly come around to looking MUCH nicer and MUCH warmer. The moderate rain/clouds that were previously in the forecast have pretty much been obliterated by the models, so it looks like we could score another day in the 70s, though we’ll see clouds increase a bit during the day.

Showers, more clouds and noticeably cooler temperatures look likely for Tuesday, but beyond that I see a big question mark in the weather models. It appears we’ll be under the influence of some pretty warm air for Wednesday through the weekend, but sky conditions will not be ideal as it looks like we’ll be partly to mostly cloudy. If this forecast were to come true, we could feel a bit like Missouri for quite a few days next week…

Nothing against Missouri itself, though! It’s a beautiful state with very friendly people, but the weather there is absolutely miserable. While the thunderstorms are an awesome sight, the humid summer days are comparable to being sprayed with a waterbottle and then thrown into a 90-100 degree closet. As you may have found…I am NOT a fan of humidity…

Anyway, there I go off on a tangent. Bottom line? Stay tuned…I am crossing my fingers for a some Washington summer-like weather, not Missouri summer-like weather. We’ll see what happens 🙂

Have a great day and get out and enjoy the sun!
