Thanks for that DOCARCH, looking back at previous contest results, only one May has had a MIN comparable to this year, namely 2012.

These are the MINs going back from 2018 to 2011:

-1.2, -1.5, -1.4, -0.8, +1.7, -0.5, -3.6, +2.1.

I was going to go a bit further but the archives get all scrambled up at some point.

That -3.6 in 2012 was on the 6th at Casement.

This year we reached -3.1 on 5th at Mountdillon. Hourly of -2 at Markree on 6th may indicate another one to watch perhaps.

After one week ...

IMT on 8.3, which is 2.0 below normal.

MIN --3.1 (MAX not in view yet)

PRC only 22% by end of 7th, probably about 50% now.

SUN 113% of normal (677/600).

Thanks for keeping an eye on data, I am in the middle of a move and will be off line for a couple of days starting today. Hoping to post the second week stats before that happens. Should be up and running by Friday if all goes well.

Thanks, the move is complete and the internet service has resumed, but I wasn't able to catch any data yesterday so ...

IMT after 15 days is 9.2 C. The past week (9th to 15th) averaged 10.4 which is 0.5 below normal.

MAX 21.9 and MIN -3.1.

PRC is estimated to be 40% of normal through fifteen days. The past week (9th to 15th) averaged about 26% of normal. The 8th which is in neither week that I reported on was relatively wet and that got the average up higher than either the first week (22%) or the 9th to 15th (26%).

SUN is estimated to be at 132% of normal. This past week (9th to 15th) was very sunny at 168.5% (1011/600). The 8th was relatively cloudy (20% of normal mostly at Belmullet) so the weighted average of first week at 113%, 9th to 15th at 168.5% and the intervening day at 20% gives 132% of normal.

I would usually be posting an update today for three weeks but we are running one day behind on that schedule due to my recent move, so just a note that the IMT has now reached 9.84 C and the past week remained quite dry with near normal sunshine amounts, so the report tomorrow is likely to come in at around 40% for PRC (month to date) and 120% for SUN.

After 22 days then ...

IMT on 10.0 C. The past week 11.5 C, bang on normal for the period.

MAX and MIN likely unchanged from last report (21.9 and -3.1).

PRC has fallen to 30% of normal, this past seven days only about 17% of normal. Our lowest forecasts were in the mid-80s and our consensus 105%. Hmm.

SUN is around 120% of normal with this past week somewhat below the average at 93% (560/600).
