Fayetteville, North Carolina to Waterloo, Iowa

Well, now we have all types of Victoria-Weather posts ready to roll on the reconstituted site, but our archives are still toast. Oh well, the weather continues on, as will we, on this two day journey from North Carolina to Iowa. It is 1090 miles between the two towns, and though this trip is approximately 2 even days, we’ll go a little bit further on day two. The first day will conclude after 519 miles on the road. all at a pace of 64.9mph. I think the weather is going to be pretty great, so let’s see if we can’t make even better time.

DAY ONE (Monday)
Like I said, it looks like we don’t have a whole lot to be concerned with on the first day on the road. High pressure is taking over the country. Sweeping the nation, really. There may be some haze and what not as we pass through West Virginia, just because of moisture in the valleys, but it will only serve to make things more picturesque. We’ll make it to Beavercreek, just outside of Dayton, Ohio.

DAY TWO (Tuesday)
There is a weak little perturbation expected to roll out of the central Rockies and cruise through the central Plains. It’s not going to be very strong, but it’s miniature stature means it will be fairly unpredictable. It will only reach southern Iowa by the time we finish our day, but there is enough uncertainty that I might just suggest to prepare for a few wet flakes anywhere from the Quad Cities to Waterloo. Slow down in Cedar Rapids, they have cameras.

We can still verify!

Thanks to our RSS feed, which apparently doesn’t get purged just because the content of the entire website is obliterated, we still know the contents of our post for Ocean City New Jersey, before the big calamity. The good news for us is that the forecast went very well for us, as Victoria-Weather claimed forecast supremacy, even as we fumbled with our own very existence. A quick wave moved through town and lead to a bit of snow, thanks in large part to temperatures that were cooler than expected…. by everyone but Victoria-Weather.
