And I'm back ... with the good news (for Joe anyway) that those scores are final. So congrats to Joe, mickger844posts, waterways and Rikand who partially solved the puzzle of this month (in terms of raw scores, I think the highest would be 54, and the raw score of normal is actually 22, consensus 30) The actual numbers for May were confirmed or adjusted to be
Although I had said SUN looked like 140%, I scored it off 130% as a method to get a minimum progression and will leave as is. The monthly summary shows an average of 8.13 hours of sunshine a day at the six locations, and normal is 6.03 (May has the highest average of all months, it tends to have a secondary peak in July which is sunniest at one or two locations in Ireland such as Johnstown Castle). That 8.13 hours appears to have been a record high value, it was at the Dublin area stations which averaged closer to 9 hours.
The scores are all good except that I appear to have added up John mac incorrectly, that 61 will go down as 59, sorry about that.
That allows us to move straight to the annual update and a report on four seasons (spring). Going off to retrieve the tables needed for that work now. I just realized it is 0300h where you are and nobody will read this for several hours anyway, can take my time (it is 7 p.m. yesterday here).
