The forecast outlets that had the best time putting together an effective forecast for Bellingham were the ones that anticipated not only the effects of Puget Sound, but also the Cascades’ role in keeping clouds overhead in the morning. Temperatures were decresingly variable as time went on, and while the two days weren’t wildly different, Sunday’s high and low suggested the increasing clouds had an impact. Victoria-Weather did the best job planning for that increase in clouds, and ended up with the victory in northwest Washington.
Actuals: Saturday – High 71, Low 46
Sunday – High 69, Low 52
