Wedding Weather Review

Radar Aug 7 at 10:20 PM
The weather couldn't have been much better for the wedding than what we got. The weather all day was as expected. We got a few random thunderstorms, but they didn't affect any of the daily events. The night before the wedding we had quite the lightning show that we watched from out garage. It rained pretty hard around 8:40, but had completely passed by morning.

We drove to the temple and saw an amazing cap cloud over Mount Timpanogos. It is so neat to see the waves in the atmosphere. When we got out of the temple I noticed quite a bit of convection over the mountains had developed that was a little worry some, but the skies remained sunny during the pictures. Right after we were done taking pictures outside the temple, a few of the people who left last drove to Provo in a heavy downpour! Perfect timing for that storm to happen right after we left. I feel bad for the other weddings getting out at that time, but the storm was moving quick and was short lived.

The luncheon was hot and a little breeze, but we were under a shaded pavilion, so that was nice. I could see the large storm cloud over Orem and American Fork (see radar image) and we could hear thunder from it. I was glad it was moving north and would not hit us in Provo.

We had a few hours between the luncheon and the reception so some of my friends and cousins went bowling before we headed back home to help set up the reception. I took a nap on the grass because I didn't know what to do to help. I figured if I was needed someone would come get me. Right before we were getting started it started to sprinkle. There was a small thunderstorm cell just to our north. Some of the rain drops must have been blown over our backyard. We got pretty lucky that this didn't develop and pass right over us or things would have been a little soggy to start of of the reception.

The temperature was pleasant in our shaded backyard. It was about 78 degrees when the reception started and by the end it cooled to 72. Couldn't have asked for better weather for an August summer day.
