Yep, We Hit 80!

High Temperatures Tuesday:
  • Windsor Locks: 82
  • Hartford: 80
  • Willimantic: 79
  • Bridgeport:73
  • New Haven:72
  • Groton: 63
The last time Windsor Locks hit 82 degrees was back in September of LAST YEAR! As expected, the shoreline stayed cooler with a southerly wind blowing off the relatively cooler water of the long island sound.

I was so proud when my forecast checked out. All the computer models I looked at forecasted significantly cooler temperatures. All the other TV stations were forecasting cooler temps. But I was talking to meteorologist Bob Cox (WTIC radio) and we both thought that the computer models looked too cloudy. Statistical computer models also tend to underdo temperature extremes. Anyway, I was proud everything worked out with the forecast.
