The first real heatwave of the summer was expected over the weekend and for the beginning of this week in the Mid-Atlantic. It didn’t quite reach the expectations of many forecasters on over the weekend in Philadelphia, with temperatures capping at 84 on Sunday and only 80 on Monday. Victoria-Weather correctly anticipated interference with the warm up by nostly cloudy skies, but didn’t correctly envision the rain that would temper those highs. Because of this, the National Weather Service, who was a little warmer with the forecast, ended up claiming the top spot.
Actuals: Saturday, .03 inches of rain/thunderstorms, High 80, Low 60
Sunday – Trace of rain, High 84, Low 67
