After two weeks ...

IMT on 6.3 with the second week average of 4.9 coming in 2.8 below normal and in fact below normal for even the coldest week of the winter (around end of January this might be 5.0).

MAX of 14.9 and MIN --3.4 to date.

PRC remains high at 164% with this past week at 145%.

SUN has recovered to 108% with the past week quite sunny at 168% (1010/600).

So far the qualifier for low max is Knock 4.1 C on 13th.

Ballyhaise seems to be hovering around 3c today.

New min max?

Yes, new low max but it's at Mountdillon (3.3) which edged out Ballyhaise (3.4) by 0.1 -- will check back as these figures were just posted minutes ago. Not quite cold enough for a new min though.

New min of -5.5 at Mountdillon yesterday. Despite some very cold overnight lows, no new low maximum and current charts suggest we have probably seen our lowest temperatures of the month. I will edit in what that means about bonus scoring after checking a few things.

Here's an odd factoid, not one of us chose a value between 3.0 and 3.9 for low max. The bonus rules stated that there would be 6 points for the value, 2 for date and 2 for location.

The value scores will be in groups of three or four from six to one points, I have divided them somewhat by similar error groupings.

If the value of 3.3 at Mountdillon on 13th holds up, scoring would be ...

6 pts _ MrSkinner 2.9, Rameire 4.0, Bsal 4.0, Dacogawa 4.1 (also Normal and Con Sensus)

5 pts _ Tae laidir 4.2, Jpmarn 2.4, Mickger844posts 4.3, sryanbruen 2.3

4 pts _ Adam240610 and Artane2002 (both 4.6)

3 pts _ MTC 1.9, Kindred Spirit, dasa29 and rikand (each 5.0)

2 pts _ John mac 5.3, waterways 1.3, DOCARCH 1.2

1 pt __ Joe Public 0.9, Pauldry 0.3, 200motels 6.4, sunflower3 6.5, BLIZZARD7 (-0.3)

As to the date, the quarter of the field closest would be the first six dates, and ties

JPmarn 14th, Joe Public 10th, dasa29 19th, sunflower3 and 200motels (both 22nd) and Adam240610, Bsal and DOCARCH all with 23rd.

Rules said anyone else within five days would get one point, nobody was, so rest of us get zero for date (if this holds up).

As for location, three had Mountdillon (sunflower3, 200motels, waterways). So they get two points. The rules said that the quarter of the field closest to the right location would get two points, otherwise those in the right province would get one. On the map I have convinced myself that Mullingar is a bit closer to Mountdillon than either Ballyhaise, or Knock. However, of those, only Knock is in Connacht. So the six who selected Mullingar will be lucky to receive two points and those with Knock get one point.

That means the following also get two points for location: Dacogawa, Adam240610, Bsal, Joe Public, Kindred Spirit, dasa29.

And these get one point for Knock -- John mac, MrSkinner, Jpmarn, sryanbruen, pauldry and Artane2002.

The grand totals would be

Bsal 10 (plus 2 superbonus points) 12

JPmarn, Dacogawa, Adam240610 _ 8

MrSkinner, dasa29 (Normal, CS) __ 7

Rameire, sryanbruen ___________ 6

Tae laidir, Artane2002, Joe Public,
__ mickger844posts KindredSpirit
__ Sunflower3, 200motels _______ 5

DOCARCH, waterways __________ 4

MTC, Rikand, John mac _________ 3

Pauldry ______________________2

BLIZZARD7 ___________________1

The bigger picture on cold scoring can be seen here, since we have very likely reached the MIN and that's worth 20 points compared to the ten being divided up for the bonus. The effects of the cold first half may eventually be washed out of the IMT scoring as it looks to me like we could get back close to 7 after being very close to 6.0 at the present time. (had a look at 12z GFS, would say IMT 6.7 a likely outcome, and very little chance of either MIN or bonus low max being changed by anything on those charts, although max itself could be set as well, not quite a done deal there if one of these strong lows manages to produce an organized warm sector).

But here's a look at the scoring from the previous post combined with scoring for MIN to show the overall scoring to be incorporated into your overall November scores ... I have ordered these by total cold scoring, with total temperature scoring based on IMT being 6.7 and MAX remaining 14.9. Ties in the cold scoring are broken by total temperature scoring. Your predicted max is shown also so you can estimate any change to this total if you perceive we could go higher than 14.9. The IMT is probably within 3 points of what will actually be the case, it's certainly going up rather than down from where we are now.

Here's the "after three weeks" report which has to be somewhat approximate because Shannon has seen an interruption in their reporting which must have come in the past two days as I did check the IMT on the 20th (for 19 days) and it was up to date then. Using the same differential from Oak Park that I remember seeing then, here's the general estimate of where things are at now ...

IMT on 5.8 C with this past week around 4.6 which would be 2.3 below normal. This somewhat milder spell is not having a very strong effect on the IMT, and my earlier estimate in the mega-temp post above may be a bit high, to get to 6.7 now would require an average of 8.8, the coming days look closer to 7 which might suggest the outcome would be 6.2 C.

MAX and MIN remain 14.9 and -5.5 and look to be under minimal threats, would be surprised if we get outside the range of 13 to -3 rest of the way but with any clear skies anything's possible.

PRC again estimating Shannon, now down to 130% with this past week around 70% of normal. The south coast remained wet but other stations reported much lower values this past week. The coming nine days appear close to average for the grid, probably with the same regional differences, and the month may end up around 120%.

SUN presents even more difficulty with only three of the six stations showing data. They are all a bit above normal. I can only say that the previous value of 108% has most likely remained about the same but will try to update this in coming days. Here again, at this time of year, so little sunshine required to keep up a percentage that I would expect the outcome to be at least normal.

Then after all I said and did about the low max, can't really be that sure some location won't squeak in under 3.3 later so that file probably isn't fully closed either.

After four weeks ...

IMT on 6.3 C, the missing data from last report were since added and the estimate given then appears correct now. The fourth week average was 7.8, 1.1 above normal.

MAX remains 14.9 and appears likely to finish on that value.

MIN remains -5.5 and has some chance of slipping lower by Saturday morning or midnight, seems to have escaped change this morning.

PRC is now around 130% of normal with this past week 117%, Dublin area stations quite wet compared to most others. This cross-checks with the monthly rainfall which was looking like it had guaranteed 125% of monthly averages at the eleven stations. It indicates that my estimate from week three might have been somewhat low for the missing Shannon data. So 125% is about where we are likely to finish with today and tomorrow essentially dry.

SUN this past week was in short supply and the average was only 27% of normal (161/600). If the earlier estimate was correct, then this would drop the month to a current value of 87%. Today and tomorrow will push that back closer to 90% perhaps. However, my third week estimate was really a shot in the dark and we could now be anywhere between 80 and 100 per cent, after checking the three stations that were missing in week three on daily data, I am thinking perhaps 95% might be the best estimate for now and near 100% by end of the month, the three missing stations I thought were keeping up to the previous mark all had a bit more sunshine than I had estimated in week three and we were probably closer to 120% then, which would make it 96% now.

As for the bonus question, it all comes down to whether our cold spots can stay below 3.3 tomorrow, as today's max temps at all suspect locations have reached at least 5 C. I think it's a 50-50 proposition for Ballyhaise or Markree to change that outcome. If there's a tie (with the previous value) then I will score the contest from best option in each case. If there was a differential of 0.1 or something crazy like that, I might go bimodal 2:1 to be fair.

The final IMT was 6.2 and the PRC was 122% of normal. Most stations were fairly close to normal, Casement and Johnstown Castle inflated the average with Cork and Oak Park a bit higher also. Malin Head actually below their normal value.

MAX of 14.9 and MIN of -5.5 were never threatened.

SUN was a bit of a no-show yesterday which leads me to speculate the finishing value is around 90% but I will wait for the MS to have much confidence in that guesstimate with the missing data situation.

Also it turned out that the bonus question scoring discussion was confirmed as no station remained under 5.0 yesterday for a max. Knock at 5.8 was the coldest reading.

I may post some provisional scoring with that SUN value the most likely to create any later amendments to it. But that scoring won't happen for a while as I am into that day of various contest updates mingled with random sleeping episodes.

That partial scoring I did earlier will be five points too high for anyone with an IMT of 6.7 or higher. For the two lowest IMT forecasts, you can add five points. I can add one, and folks at 6.5 can subtract one, while those at 6.6 should subtract three points (as I calculated it all from an estimate of 6.7 rather than 6.2). We had a bit of a gap in our IMT forecasts with myself at 6.4 a bit closer than BLIZZARD7 at 5.9.

Looks to me like overall high score may be going to JPmarn if the SUN is not higher than 100%. I might be looking at second and sryanbruen and/or Artane2002 could be third. Just estimates from that partial scoring and a quick look at PRC and SUN forecasts.

SUN confirmed at 89% of normal from MS data. Normal is 2.05 hours a day over the six stations, reports averaged 1.82. No other changes to reported values as everything confirmed by MS.

Will be working on the scoring tables next few hours, check back.

Four seasons scoring will be the next and last item on the agenda.

So it would appear that Tae laidir goes into December with a lead of 29, 36 and 41 points over nearest rivals. The margin is larger in the total scoring (44, 46 and 60). Seems like a comfortable lead, would have to look at the December forecasts to see if there's even that much differential in the potential scores. Congrats to our leader and anyone else who has managed to outperform Con Sensus to date.

Congrats to Tae laidir who had this won after the summer portion (fortunately), and to JPmarn whose autumn win moved him into second just ahead of sryanbruen in third place overall.
