We had a forecast for Minneapolis towards the end of the week last week. This was good, it seems like we get way more forecasts for State College than anywhere else, meaning Accuweather gets to forecast for their home turf, and the rest of us are always looking at locations well away from our homeland. Victoria-Weather wasn’t going to let anyone beat us at home, and indeed, we played up our Minnesota pessimism and earned a victory by having the coolest temperatures of any major outlet. There were 90 degree temperatures in parts of the Twin Cities, but not at Crystal Airport, which is closest to Minneapolis’ City limits. Not to toot our own horn, but we were actually going to leave the threat of rain out of the forecast on Friday, which would only have led to a greater victory. We won regardless (tied with the other locals, the Weather Service), so I guess I can let it go.
Actuals: Friday – High 89, Low 48
Saturday -Thunderstorms reported, not measured, High 87, Low 66
