10 hours make all the difference

A cold front moving through New England over the weekend wasn’t really a big news maker, mostly because it didn’t carry with it a great deal of rainfall. It was, of course, the main attraction in our forecast for Manchester over the holiday weekend. Temperatures didn’t play nice for the duration of the forecast period, spiking warmer than expected on Saturday, and on Sunday, the temperature leading into the day was close to 50, rather than 40, as everyone expected. That, in large part, is because the front itself didn’t come through close to midnight, as had been anticipated, but rather closer to noon marked by gusty wind and a splash of drizzle on Sunday. Victoria-Weather had the latest time of the front’s arrival, and as a result, were able to claim victory, tortuous though it was.
