Weather Wayback… Sun when it really counted

In early October, not long after we put together the forecast for La Crosse, Anthony assembled a forecast for Danville, Virginia, that got a little bit more out of hand than anyone really anticipated. With forecasts pegged in the upper 70s to low 80s on October 10th and 11th, the temperatures instead climbed all the way to 87 on both days, thanks to sun that shone brightly on the town from the early to mid afternoon, just when it had it’s maximum impact. The sun mixed with heat and humidity, destabilizing the environment and leading to evening thunderstorms on each day of the forecast, moreso on Tuesday the 10th than on Wednesday. Victoria-Weather narrowly surpassed our rivals, though the warmth was more than anyone truly anticipated.
Actuals: October 10th – .47 inches of rain in thunderstorms, High 87, Low 72
October 11th – Trace of rain in thunderstorms, High 87, Low 67
