Hit or miss

I didn’t really note it at the time, but there was a lot of dissension among the forecasters for Boulder. There is no readily available extracted data for Boulder, and it’s in the mountains, which always plays tricks with the forecasts. Usually, we see forecasts cluster around Particular value, but not this time. The NWS was too cool with their forecast highs, while Victoria-Weather was way too warm with the overnight lows. Somehow, WeatherNation was both. The other three were contenders. The Weather Channel and Weatherbug would have run away with the forecast were it not for the thunderstorms they didn’t forecast on Tuesday. Accuweather added the threat for storms on Wednesday, and those did not occur, otherwise they would have snuck ahead. Instead, TWC and Weatherbug did indeed tie for the top spot.

Actuals: Tuesday – Thunderstorms reported, precip not measured, high 82, Low 51
Wednesday – High 86, Low 55

Grade: B
