    1. Predict the IMT (1981-2010 mean 8.6).

    2. Predict the MAX (highest temp at any met-ie station)

    3. Predict the MIN (lowest temp at any met-ie station)

    4. Predict the PRC as a % of normal.

    5. Predict the SUN as a % of normal.

    6. BONUS == Predict maximum temp for Shannon on Sunday 10th April.

    Deadline -- 0300h Friday 1st April, usual late penalties will apply.

    Will have the max rainfall bonus some future month, we did it a few years ago in May I think, was going to use it then reconsidered with looks of 1st of April on current models (don't want to have a contender mixed up with the deadlines).

    As always, submit your forecast in this sort of template if possible:

    M.T. Cranium __________ 7.9 _ 20.3 _ -3.5 _ 115 _ 090 __ 12.0

    (subject to edit later, I haven't really thought about it much so ignore those random numbers)

    23 forecasts, will add any later ones and adjust Con Sensus.

    Our group consensus seems to indicate a rather cool month with near normal rain and sunshine although with a slight tendency to the wet and cloudy side.
