Generally speaking, a day’s high temperature happens at one of two times: During the afternoon after maximum heating or at midnight as temperatures drop precipitously through the day behind an advancing cold front. In Monroe, Michigan on Sunday, they reached their high today at the most peculiar of times. At 5am, it was 59 degrees. By 530, it was 63 and 20 minutes later, just before 6am, they reached their high for the day at 64. An hour later, it was 54. That’s really strange. It was dictated entirely by the wind rotating around the massive system moving through the area. Monroe just happened to be near the triple point, so they were in the warm sector for an extremely brief period, bringing about the odd temperature pattern. Elsewhere in the forecast, the only issue was that snow didn’t fall, causing a few forecasters to have a little bit of egg on their face, and the rain ended before Saturday rolled around. If not for that little advective quirk, Vicoria-Weather would have had a great forecast. Instead, we will settle for merely “good”.
Actuals: Friday – Rain reported, not measured, High 64, Low 37
