Last Friday night, temperature trends varied by forecast outlet in a rather interesting way. Virtually all national forecasters (weather.com, accuweather and intellicast) saw the current week as being cooler than the local prognosticators. The national weather providers envisioned several days in the 70s, whereas the hometown studs maintained temps in the 80s throughout. Given the rather odd dichotomy in temps, we captured the forecast for later review. Our thinking -- our guess, really -- was that the locals would be better at forecasting local weather than the nationals. However, as this week has played out, and given the forecast for Thursday, that's not been the case. If you had your money on Weather.com, you were a winner.
