It still feels like summer this morning as the cool of the morning is beginning to give way to the warmth of the day. We are headed for the upper 80s this afternoon, about 15 degrees above normal for this part of September. There is some cooler air on the way though, and we will be feeling it tomorrow. As that cooler air moves in we will be in for a bit of atmospheric action later tonight into Thursday morning. You will very likely see some high clouds moving in from the west this afternoon, provided that you are not stuck in a cubicle all day, or don't bother to look up at the sky. Those clouds will be the first indication of something brewing out there, and that something will be a band of showers, and a few isolated thunderstorms that will be in the area from about midnight tonight until roughly 9:00am tomorrow. Any rain is not likely to add up to much, but we will take anything that we can get in that department. Tomorrow will be breezy and cooler with partly sunny skies. The afternoon temperatures will drop back to the mid 70s, which is just about average. Through the weekend we will see comfortable temperatures, with daily highs ranging from the mid 70s to low 80s, and just a small chance for a shower or two on Saturday.
Oh no! Not Saturday! We don't want any rain on Saturday! Saturday is the "Praise In The Park" service that St. John's Lutheran is presenting in the park at Eagle Ridge, beginning at 5:30pm. It will be a contemporary, concert-like, atmosphere with two musical groups. The Haas family, Wayne and Tammy along with their 3 children and Doug and Candy Ginz will be providing the Christian songs, some of which we will all sing along with, some we will just listen to and enjoy. I will present a brief message centered on the Gospel. It should be a wonderful time of worship and praise, but we could do with out rain. That being said, the chances for rain between 5:30 and 7:00pm in the exact spot of the park at Eagle Ridge are quite small, but that chance still exists. Lets all pray that the Lord gives us favorable weather for this event, according to His will. If it is not His will, we will have a number small yard tents that we can put up.
