A particularly virulent area of low pressure developing over the southeastern US promised to bring heavy rain to the east coast as this week began. It sure did! The thing is, all that rain fell everywhere BUT Dalton, where we issued a forecast on Saturday. I mean, there was some rain in northern Georgia, but only a splash reached the rain gauge in Dalton. It still verified as rain, and everyone got a point for getting that part of the forecast correct. It came down to the temperature forecasts, and the best belonged to Accuweather.
Actuals: Sunday – High 77, Low 50
Monday – .03 inches of rain, High 69, Low 51
