Any ideas for a bonus question for the June contest? My mind has gone entirely blank after wrestling with data files for the past two days. Are we even sure it is May? It looks like May outside here, the cottonwood snow is starting up.

What about something like 'How many days in June will record a daily temperature of 20+ degrees?

It will keep us occupied for the month and obviously after a crap May I'm hoping the answer will be 30 days!

June 7th is a key date on easing lockdown restrictions here in Ireland. Pubs and restaurants are allowed to open to outside tables only with a Max of 6 adults per table. You could pick on Max temperature, Sunshine or even rainfall quantities on this day.

Okay thanks for suggestions, will take one of them or something based thereupon. We just eased our own regime in British Columbia (for the third time, I think it is now) today so naturally it was the worst day in ages (wind and rain).

New Max of 19.6 at Newport yesterday, which won't last long with highest max expected on Sunday.

The 21.2°C barrier is under threat to be broken before the end of May. Probably today but more likely tomorrow Sunday.

After four weeks ...

IMT has made it to 9.2 C (9.16 rounded up) and will finish on 9.5 give or take 0.1. The fourth week average was 9.7 which is 2.4 below normal.

MAX still sits at 19.2, but could edge up after today's final report, more likely tomorrow or Monday.

MIN was -4.0 and has been scored.

PRC ... good news for y'all ... it has passed the point of no return, no half-boost possible as my 150% has fallen below the thresh-hold raw score, we have enough PRC now to guarantee 165% even if today, 30th and 31st add nothing (and they likely will or won't, with very minor exceptions). The ongoing tracking shows this past week at 153% which places the PRC at 185% of normal through 28 days. A dry end to the month reduces that to the guaranteed 165%. So you can estimate your score in PRC by looking at your rank, will be doubling up the scores a few times going down from 15 to 1, in places where forecasts are clumped together.

SUN ... finally something that we actually have scores to calculate (well the IMT also) ... SUN edged up to 104% with the fourth week average 111% from 666 hours at the six locations. There's a sun-cloud mix for the grid these last three days which will likely not change this very much in either direction, so figure on perhaps a 105% outcome.

BONUS ... This is now settled too, regardless of what happens with the timing; the only detail to be determined is whether Danno gets one or two superbonus points, if today or Monday break 21.2 first then it's one, if tomorrow then it's two superbonus points. Scoring was otherwise laid out for the bonus a few days back.

Could probably give you a very close estimate of final scoring already, but will hold off until the first of June to have an accurate IMT and MAX.

New Max 20.3 yesterday at Mt Dillion.

We expect it to be beaten today but it reach 21.2?

That's the one to watch!

I'd say it will smash past 21.2c
It's 19c at 11am in many places
