Heat wave!

Well this was embarrassing. Great for Elmira, but not so good for the forecasters. Everyone was thinking that the temperatures would be in mid 50s on Sunday, but as luck would have it, gusty south winds and a strong boundary to the north allowed temperatures to climb into the 60s. Temperature forecast errors were compounded, as the temperatures didn’t cool off very much that night either. The Weather Channel had the top forecast, though it wasn’t very good. The better news is that everyone else tied at the bottom.
Actuals: Sunday – Rain reported but not measured, High 66, Low 41
Monday – High 44, Low 25
