It’s tough to forecast extremes. They are extreme, of course, because they rarely match those numbers, but in Altoona on Saturday, a record was indeed matched. The high temperature hit 99, tying an all time high. Victoria-Weather properly forecast the spike in temperatures yesterday, but a better forecast of overnight lows (perfect, in fact) gave the Weather Service the narrow victory.
Actuals: Friday, High 93, Low 69
Saturday, .04 inches of rain in a thunderstorm, High 99, Low 69
