A coastal feature was expected to get shunted off shore by the development of a weak ridge in the Ohio Valley. Instead, some extra moisture was drawn north towards Ohio, thanks in part to the development of a strong area of low pressure in the Plains. It rained on both Monday and Tuesday, while a thick layer of overcast filtered in on Tuesday as well, pinning temperature down in the 40s in Columbus, well off the pace prognosticated by our forecasters. Curiously, the clearer conditions on Monday in the early afternoon led to warmer highs than anyone had expected. Everyone except Forecast.io, who tied for the top forecast. The Weather Channel also registered the same score, but their value was added with overnight lows.
Actuals: Monday – .16 inches of rain, High 59, Low 30
Tuesday – .20 inches of rain, High 48, Low 44
