Con Sensus now posted, for 26 entrants that is the average of 13th and 14th ranked forecasts (from top to bottom of range) as we use median rather than average for Con. We think of Con as our inevitable nemesis but it's tough to beat consensus in any forecast contest, last year only one (Pauldry) managed to do that, other years I have seen as many as four or five perhaps. Mathematically it is tough to have the number beating consensus much higher than 1 in 4. As for Normal, a poor showing in December dropped its ranking but it still managed to beat two thirds of the field, other years almost the entire field has beaten Normal who has one hand tied behind his or her back having to go with, well, average (another name for Normal) even in a month like July 2018 with heat and drought staring us in the face. Normal did well in 2018 generally because months had a nasty habit of changing regimes past the end of the 16-day model run and ending up closer to average than many thought. In fact Normal even won one month which is a sign of generally unanticipated changes.

Welcome to two new entrants, derekon and YanSno, we're familiar with them posting on the forum and so they are having a go with us now, good luck to them and all of you.

Looks as though we are all expecting snow sooner or later, so many chose January that I can finalize scoring this month (if it doesn't snow by 31st, the remaining three or so will get the max points). Most of us seem to think it will turn quite cold but a few are skeptical. This has worked out rather like the average ensemble set of maps you see on the GFS. No help to anyone trying to make a forecast, but interesting all the same.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final results (pending check against Monthly Summary for December on 3rd) posted over in the Dec 2018 thread. Congrats to Pauldry, He Who Slayed Con Sensus.

If those numbers verify you'll be able to afford the 10 points ... going over to add you to the table and calculate Con Sensus (and what does he know about weather? ... quite a bit apparently).
