WU long-term forecast loses it
« on: December 12, 2023, 01:18:03 PM »
At the top you see, for each day, a predicted max/min. Underneath, you see a plot of predicted temperatures. Tomorrow morning, in my burg, the "min" is listed as 46F. But the plot underneath dips to 36F. Duuuh? NWS says the low will be 50F, which is close enough to the WU "min".

Without being able to see the page in question (got a link?), in most weather forecast displays the "day" for high/low starts at 7am/7pm local time. The high you see will be the daytime high and the low will be the upcoming night's low. In cases where there is a sudden temperature change, the calculated high/low can get a bit weird.

Understood. But that's not what's going on here. In the numeric "lows" there is nothing anywhere close to 36F on preceding or succeeding days. Someone's not paying attention.
