Shannon and Moorepark are leading the way on 13c so far

Can 14 on the 14th be reached?

Some answers to our bonus question. We had pleasant romantically high temperatures of 13.5 C at Shannon Airport. 12.9 Moorepark and 12.4 at Valentia. Most stations in the southern half of the country temperature made double figures at best but the failed in the northern half. Even in the Dublin area there were big difference in the highs there. Casement made 10.1c but Airport only made 7.8 with Phoenix Park a degree higher.

After the second week ...

IMT on 4.7 with the second week rather cold, 4.3 C which is 1.1 deg below average.

PRC now at 79% with the second week generally dry (apart from Dublin) at 42%.

SUN is now bang on normal (100.1%) with the second week at 86.5% (Valentia quite sunny at 154%).

MAX now 13.5 (Shannon, 14th) as mentioned above with regard to the bonus.

As Valentia came in third and Moore Park was not guessed, I thought it might be fair to tweak the scoring with seven points for the temperature and three for the location, giving three to the Shannon guesses and one point for Valentia.

Those getting seven points for the temperature portion will be Bsal and Dasa29 who were closest at 13.0, as well as Pauldry (12.6). Those at 11.9 to 12.0 will have six points, (Rikand, sryanbruen and Joe Public), then the next three (JCX BXC, Kindred Spirit, Jpmarn also NormaL) get five points, DOCARCH, sunflower3 and Mr Skinner at four along with Con Sensus, Dacogawa, M.T.Cranium and Lumi with three, Rameire, mickger844posts and Tae laidir with two and John mac, waterways and 200motels with the lowest three guesses sharing one point.

Three points for location are added on for Lumi (6), Tae laidir (5) and John mac (4) so nobody qualified for the two point superbonus, and one point will be added to all those who guessed Valentia (about half the field), with Bsal and Pauldry qualifying for one additional superbonus point. So that brings them to 9 points.

Looks like it'll be broken tomorrow.

The 14.3 MAX was tied rather than broken, at Roches Point on Sunday 19th.

Cork Airport reported 15c (rounded) today so I'd say the max has been broken.

Yes, 14.5 confirmed at Cork, most other numbers not yet posted (as of 0500h, will check the full list around 0900h). Third week summary tomorrow. Looks like a rather bumpy ride to the finish line, but milder end of forecasts probably will do well.

I don't think rain or sunshine will be very far from average.

You'll do fine with your higher IMT.

Week three update, almost forgot (thanks to Doris) ...

IMT is already up to 6.2, with this past week at an average value of 9.4 C which is a full 3.8 above normal for the week. This may come down slightly by end of the month but not much if at all.

PRC before today was at 76% with the third week rather dry (69%) -- I estimate that this now stands at 83%, so the fourth week will need to be about 1.5 times normal to bring the month up to 100%.

SUN during the past week was a meagre 36.7% dragging the month down to 79% of normal. That may improve slightly or stay about the same in the rather turbulent period ahead. Turbulence at least breaks up some of the cloud.

Max and min have been discussed in previous posts. Stay safe.

After four weeks and for the final February figures (to be confirmed with monthly summary tomorrow) ...

IMT finished on 6.3 C with the fourth week also on that value which was 0.4 above normal for the period. The month was more like 0.9 above normal.

PRC for the week was 181% which gives an estimate of 102% of normal for the month.

SUN for the week was 85.2% and the monthly estimate is 81% of normal.

I will confirm all values tomorrow and post some scoring. March contest in a separate thread (if you haven't already entered).

____________________________________________

note that a slight boost of two points was given on MIN scores to achieve minimum progression, points for four raw scores of zero were allocated in rank order, basically everybody got two extra points except the two warmest who got one extra. And in the SUN column, with one score of 10 and nobody at 9, the best of the 8's moved up to 9.

Congrats then to Kindred Spirit, sryanbruen and DOCARCH for medal performances this month, scoring generally quite good.

(Four seasons, totals Dec - Feb are then awarded points, ten for top score and then seven for 2nd, six for 3rd etc, down to 1 point for each of 8th, 9th and 10th. Two were tied for 10th so there are in fact eleven people with points. If your seasonal score was below 170, no points for you.

As to the annual scoring, Pauldry and Jpmarn are setting the pace with an average of 70 for the first two months. Not too big a spread yet, everyone in with a chance, and remember, the main contest drops your two worst scores so if you've missed a month, keep playing and you still have one other score to drop even if you have that missed month.
