June 2019 Boards weather forecast contest

1. Predict the IMT, mean temperature at five locations in Ireland (Claremorris, Casement, Mullingar, Oak Park, Shannon) for June, 2019. The 1981-2010 "normal" value is 13.6 deg C.

2. Predict the MAX temperature at any regularly reporting Met-E station as reported in the Monthly Summary (and daily in the "yesterday's weather" section of their website), during June.

3. Predict the MIN temperature during June (see above for overview).

4. Predict the PRC (rainfall at this time of year) as a percentage of normal values (1981-2010) at eleven locations, namely Ballyhaise, Cork, Malin Head, Belmullet, Cork, Johnstown Castle, and the five locations for the IMT (section 1 above), during June.

5. Predict the SUN (sunshine) as a percentage of normal values (1981-2010) at six locations, Belmullet, Casement, Dublin, Shannon, Cork and Valentia, during June.

6. Bonus question. Cork vs Dublin ... using the data for Cork (A) and Dublin (A) what will be the score of higher daily maxima for the month? Express it as a score with Cork first then Dublin, e.g., 11-19, 15-15 etc. If max temps are tied (to nearest tenth of a degree as reported) then min temps are used to break the tie. If those are also tied, the previous day's winner takes the tied day (and any that follow). With tenths of a degree in play, there probably won't be too many ties. I am not sure what the normal value for this might be, probably something like 12-18?

The usual late penalties will apply and the deadline is Saturday 1st of June at 0300h or very very late Friday evening in other words. Sorry this is a bit late but I will post reminders.

Good question. How does a standoff count?

The instruction says there is always a winner. Should have read it.

I am going to assume the Cork warmer numbers are correct and change the Dublin numbers of any entries that fail to add up to 30.

See the original post for details on tied days.

Here's the final version for NormaL and myself ...

NormaL __________ 13.6 _ 26.0 _ 2.5 _ 100 _ 100 __ 12-18

MT Cranium _______ 13.4 _ 26.2 _ 1.8 _ 115 _ 090 __ 10-20

(edit your posts if possible rather than posting again, if you want Cork-Dublin other than your forecast for Cork + Dublin = 30).
