If you happen to be unfamiliar with our contests, scroll down the menu to the January thread, more details there.
1. Predict the IMT for February (1981-2010 average is 5.3 C)
2. Predict the MAX
3. Predict the MIN
4. Predict the PRC (% of normal)
5. Predict the SUN (% of normal)
6. BONUS: On 14th, where will the sun shine most and for how long?
One valid answer would be 0.0 hours all locations
Otherwise, predict an amount in hours (and tenths) and a location from this menu of recording staitons -- Belmullet, Malin Head, Gurteen, Knock, Casement, Dublin, Johnstown Castle, Cork, Valentia, Shannon
Any station that manages more than 5 hours will count as a correct answer, if the amount is 0.1 to 4.9 hours your location score will be 3 if correct, 2 if you guess the second highest and 1 if the third highest.
(that leaves seven points for your amount prediction -- 10 is about the max possible)
Deadline without late penalties will be 0300h Thursday 1st of February.
As regulars here know, I am taking a bit of a vacation from forecasting this week and I won't be around to look in much on this thread, perhaps some of you can keep an eye on responses and get in touch with any new entrants who might be unfamiliar with our contest format (if you see entries you suspect to be misdirected to the actual questions). Thanks and good luck.
