The old wisdom comes through again! One of oldest forecasting “rules” I remember from college states “Never forecast a weather record.” Good advice, but ignored by most (maybe all) local forecasters yesterday. Our morning low was 16, three degrees above the record while some were forecasting as low as 10.
Meanwhile, looking ahead our weather looks like a warming trend (although still below normal) through Friday. High temperatures should have a hard time getting out of the 30’s and we’ll see a small chance for flurries tomorrow night. The cold northerly flow will relax by the weekend, however, as a weak disturbance from the southwest will provide a chance for some light rain Saturday. A second, stronger, system moves into the area Sunday with rain likely and even a thunderstorm possible. Colder weather should return Monday.
