On January First, we had our first forecast of the year, in the remote northern outpost of Lewiston, Idaho. Lewiston is in the mountains, and Anthony was almost certainly overserved the day before the forecast, Victoria-Weather, just like the other outlets around us, didn’t come out to a very good start in 2017. Temperatures were significantly warmer than expected, with highs in the upper 20s, with lows also notably warmer than anticipated. The forecast was a bust all the way around, but the warmest outlet, Forecast.io, had the first good forecast of the year.
Actuals: January 2nd – High 28, Low 21
January 3rd – High 27, Low 14
