Get Lucky This Weekend!

While watching fireworks on Wednesday night, the revelry was kept in check by a band of frontal precipitation that passed during the festivities. Now, though, as we head away from the 4th and toward the weekend, the future is bright.

Friday will see some thunderstorms, and the winds and precipitation (maybe even hail) associated with them. Moving into Saturday, though, that front moves through and we transition to less severe weather and more sun.

Saturday also brings a record-setting day for weddings. Couples clamoring for lucky sevens and driven by a love of palindromes have made 07/07/07 the most popular date to get hitched in a very long time. Onlookers should be able to enjoy a day free of showers, which will come as good news for everyone planning to have an outdoor ceremony.
