March here we go, Min -2.6 at Moore Park on 1st.

* Locations of choice for max 17th:

2 chose Dublin A, Casement (Con Sensus 1 pt if correct)

1 chose Mullingar, Newport, Roches Point, Belmullet, Moorepark (Con Sensus 1 pt if any correct)

Con Sensus will receive zero if the max is elsewhere.

If we are all incorrect, 2 pts for the warmest of our choices and 1 pt for second warmest of them.

If any of us are correct, 3 pts to that forecaster (or forecasters) and other points based on rank of 2nd, 3rd choices only determined from within our selections.

superbonus of 1 or 2 pts available (the temp portion is worth 7/10 and there will be equal numbers awarded each level one to seven).

2 pt superbonus requires 7 + 3, 1 pt for 6 + 3 or 7 + 2.

After one week of March ...

IMT at 4.4 C, 2.0 below normal for the interval. This coming week is gradually warming but not at a very rapid pace yet.

MAX 11.4, MIN -3.5

PRC almost nil, 2% thanks to five of the eleven stations having other than spider webs in their rain gauges. Malin Head and Belmullet had almost all of what did fall, each at 9% of normal. This coming week looks a bit more average.

SUN at 90% (539/600), several locations above average but Cork very cloudy at only 14% (their three hours being the daily normal now, rather than a weekly average amount). Belmullet was brightest at 133%. This coming week not likely to add much to the account, week three looks brighter.

Early model forecast indications showing quite mild temperatures for 17th, would estimate 15 is current forecast value. ECM has west-northwest flow, GFS has weak southerly flow with high pressure closer. Both have quite warm uppers, looks quite spring-like in week three.

After two weeks ...

IMT on 5.7 C, the second week average was 7.0 which was 0.2 above normal values.

MAX 13.6 and MIN -3.5.

PRC now 108% with the second week rather wet at 223 per cent of normal. Still, with today's small amounts and a dry week ahead, this only guarantees a finish of above 50 per cent, and 50 per cent of normal from today to end would result in an outcome near 75%.

SUN now at 86% with this past week rather dull, 82% of normal sunshine (490/600).

The 17th looms and forecasts indicate one of our warmer forecasts may do well. Our second highest (sdanseo) was 17.3 C. Not as optimistic for top value of 21.0.

The highest hourly temps were 14 at Phoenix Park and Johnstown Castle. That doesn't guarantee one of them will be the location as several others hit 13. Nobody selected Johnstown Castle so if that wins, the points will be based on how our actual choices did (but con sensus would score zero for that, normal would score 2/3 as it's not always among the warmer locations being prone to marine influences).

I'm sure somebody will get the more precise data when it's available. With this recent warmth the IMT was 6.2 after the 16th and I estimate around 6.5 now.

Okay so for the location scoring only the predicted locations will be ranked, so the outcome for locations actually chosen looks like this ...

1. Phoenix Park 14.6

2. Roches Point 13.4, Casement, and Mullingar 13.3

3. Dublin 13.2, Moorepark 13.1, Oak Park 12.8, Shannon 12.4, Newport 11.4 and Belmullet 10.5.

To distribute enough points to keep the bonus scoring in line, we'll give the PP location 3, any of Roches Point, Casement or Mullingar 2, and any above 12 get one point.

Earlier I said that Con Sensus would score zero for location due to JC, but applying the scoring rules normally Con scores the same way as forecasters raw scores, so Con would get two points for location. Normal also gets two since JC is a warmish location most days although seldom warmest like yesterday.

The actual temperature will score from the 14.9 at JC, and the superbonus will score as if PP had two rather than three, other locations cannot qualify (so only one superbonus is possible and PP has to be the location, max temp points will be required, as it turned out, nobody in the top scoring group had PP as their location, so no superbonus issued).

Based on that, the scoring groups for temperature, with location points indicated within groups, are as follows:

7 pts _ Dasa29 (15.0, Mul) +2 = 9
______Dacogawa (14.8, OP) +1 = 8
______DOCARCH (15.1, Cas) +2 = 9
______Cirrus Business (14.7, OP) +1 = 8

6 pts _ M.T. Cranium (14.5, MP) +1 = 7
______funsterdelux (15.5, Sh) +1 = 7
______Joe Public (14.4, Bel) +0 = 6
______Gonzo (14.2, OP) +1 = 7
______Eon1208 (14.2, OP) +1 = 7

5 pts _ SleetAndSnow (14,1, OP) +1 = 6
______Sunflower3 (14.1, New) +0 = 5
________ Con Sensus (14.1) +2 = 7
______Pauldry (14.0, PP) __ +3 = 8
______Adam240610 (16.1, PP) +3 = 8
______Artane2002 (13.7 PP) +3 = 8

4 pts __John mac (16.2, Sh) +1 = 5
__________ NormaL (13.5) +2 = 6
______ 200motels (13.4, Sh) +1 = 5
______ waterways (13.2, Dub) +1 = 5
______ sryanbruen (13.2, Sh) +1 = 5

3 pts __ Western Storm (16.8, Dub) +1 = 4
_______Bsal (12.5, PP) +3 = 6
_______sdanseo (17.3, OP) +1 = 4
_______Mr Stonewall (12.4, Sh) +1 = 4

2 pts __ Appledrop (12.1, PP) +3 = 5
_______MrSkinner (12.1, PP) +3 = 5
_______Kindred Spirit (12.0, OP) +1 = 3
_______Tae laidir (11.8, RP) +2 = 4

1 pt ___ JPmarn (11.5, OP) +1 = 2
_______ Danno (9.3, OP) +1 = 2
_______ BLIZZARD7 (21.0, Cas) +2 = 3
