August 2018 Boards weather forecast contest

1. Predict the IMT, the average temperature at five locations (Claremorris, Mullingar, Casement, Oak Park, Shannon). The 1981-2010 normal value is 15.1.

2. Predict the MAX at any location as reported in the Monthly Summary.

3. Predict the MIN at any location as reported in the Monthly Summary.

4. Predict the PRC, the average for eleven locations, as % of normal.

5. Predict the SUN, the average for six locations, as % of normal.

6. BONUS: What will be the highest 24h rainfall in mm, and location? Points will be 7 and 3, superbomus available.

Enter by 0300h Wed 1st of August with the usual late penalties.

As I will be off-line until after that deadline, my forecast for the above is

MTC _____ 16.1 _ 29.0 _ 2.5 _ 080 _ 120 __ 45.0 Ballyhaise

and NormaL 15.1 _ 26.5 _ 1.5 _ 100 _ 100 __ 50.0 (pts based on climate)

Revised max temp to 27.4, don't see it reaching above 28 let alone 29.
