The broad area of low pressure that I’ve been forced to mention in nearly every post of late, the one that lies near Labrador in Canada, didn’t turn out to produce as much precipitation as the GFS suggested over the last couple of days. There were still some flurries reported in Danville, but not enough for any accumulation. As advertised, however, there was quite a sheath of low clouds. They kept temperatures from attaining the more optimistic forecast highs on Friday. There were some breaks on Saturday, and things were significantly more accurate as the weekend began. Victoria-Weather pulled together the top forecast in eastern Illinois.
Actuals: Friday – Trace of snow, High 29, Low 24
Saturday – Trace of snow, High 32, Low 22
