I mentioned earlier in our forecast for Charlottesville that our forecast was significantly cooler than what had actually occurred. The Charlottesville and Hartford forecasts came out at similar times, and they were snakebitten by the same problems, though the forecast in Hartford had greater issues. Temperatures blew past the projected highs, touching 61 degrees on Sunday. Victoria-Weather, just as an example, only saw them up to 47. Yikes. Forecasts were not good. The closest anyone got to that high was within 9 degrees, which WeatherNation and eventual winner Accuweather could claim. But who in their right mind forecasts the low 60s in New England in February, anyway?
Actuals: Saturday – High 50, Low 19
Sunday – High 61, Low 30
