Weather Update for Wednesday, August 8, 2018.

National Weather Service

The high pressure area north of us is still camping out up in the upper Wisconsin and Michigan areas. The low pressure ridge, residing just south of the Chicago area will lurk around while it presents a chance of ran and thunderstorms for the remainder of the week. Although in most cases only 30% to 40% chance of rain, that will exist all the way up to the weekend when that northern stationed high pressure area will come down and clear things up. We will continue with warm temperatures on Thursday, but then temperatures will begin to moderate from Friday to the remainder of the weekend floating around the lower 80s.

The weekend looks marvelous, with mostly clear skies and moderate temps in the lower 80s. A great weekend to get out and do what you do, whatever that may be. If it’s something shady, just keep it to yourself.

If it’s something cool we are sure we’ll see photos on Facebook, Instagram or that SnapChat thing those kidos are using nowin days. Will someone out there please explain SnapChat to us? It’s weird! Like it shows a picture for a few seconds and then it’s gone. I guess it’s one way of creating memories or working on memory skills. It kinda reminds me of the weather around here lately. You see stuff for a bit then boom it’s gone. So I guess that will be one way we can describe the weather from today up to Friday. We are in a SnapChat thing with our bs. Now you see it now you don’t. Have fun out there and stay of that SnapChat for a bit and enjoy the things that stay around longer than a few seconds. Why can’t they develop a SnapChat thing for some relatives or exes? That would be beyond awesome. “Now here is my Uncle Larry…oh sorry now he’s gone…”
