Duped by drizzle

Here’s something that doesn’t happen very often: We had to break out the old “precipitation type error” penalty. Five forecasters indicated that they suspected there would be snow in Ann Arbor on Christmas. Two thought it would mix with rain. There wasn’t any snow at all, as it turned out. There were some solid temperature forecasts, but it was the two outlets that weren’t punished for not having rain in the forecast, Accuweather (who came in second) and WeatherNation (the top ‘caster) who won the day.
Actuals: Thursday – Rain reported, not measured High 39, low 32
