When I looked back at an October forecast for Bremerton, opposite Seattle on Puget Sound, I was struck by one thing: The monotony of the temperature forecasts. No forecaster strayed more than a degree for their forecast high from day to day, and the biggest change in the low temperature forecast for any forecaster was 2 degrees. Across the board, including all highs and lows, both for Sunday and Monday, the range in temperatures was a high of 61-64 to a low of 41-45. Wouldn’t you know it, then, that literally every forecast was busted on day one, Sunday the 15th, when the high was 60 and the low 35. Monday cooperated, as well it should have, given the uniformity of the forecasts. Victoria-Weather had the top forecast for the day.
Actuals: Sunday, October 15th – High 60, Low 35
Monday, October 16th – High 62, Low 41
