    Mid-Atlantic summer hottest temperature contest

    98 at BWI yesterday.
  2. Update on anomaly tracker and forecasts, with seasonal MAX values shown.

The end of month projections carry low confidence as GFS introduces considerably cooler regime to central and eastern US and have estimated -1 anomalies for 22nd-31st for eastern locations, continued heat in west (warmer end of month for SEA). Will post some preliminary scoring if these late cooling trends appear to be holding after a few more days. Otherwise the actuals could end up well above most forecasts. ... edit 16th, PHX new max of 114 on 15th. 17th _ PHX edged up to 115, NYC tied previous max of 91, on 16th. 18th _ NYC moved up to 93 on 17th.

    Mid-Atlantic summer hottest temperature contest

    Have the feeling that late July and August will be hotter than we've seen so far.
  4. June had no activity so the scoring (out of four possible points) looks like this: 4 pts (0,0,0 forecasts) __ Julian Colton, Stormlover74, Cyclonic Fury 3.5 pts (1,0,0 forecasts) _ all others except below 3.0 pts (1,1,0 forecast) __ Roger Smith 2.5 pts (2,1,0 forecast) __ ineedsnow ================================= July may get some action apparently.

Rather cool for mid-June in the east and north central states. These trends seem likely to continue for most of the outlook period but anomalies in the east will remain fairly close to normal. 15th _ The past week NWS forecasts appear to have been quite accurate with an average error of about 0.9 deg. ... as expected the west had a heat wave, PHX has already hit 112 and SEA 95 towards the seasonal max contest. I don't think there are any other contenders yet. This coming week looks relatively bland almost everywhere while staying rather hot in the Pac NW. The portion of the month derived from the GFS 8 to 16 day charts also looked quite close to average for late June with faint signs of a heat wave towards the very end of the guidance in the east, but probably a bit below average for most of the period. 22nd _ The past week had reasonably good forecasts, the average error was 0.8 deg (compare blue text lines). The coming week will be generally a bit warmer than normal except in the Pacific northwest, and trends for 29th-30th appear similar. 29th _ The past week was well predicted, the average error was about 0.5 deg. The provisionals have been retained for the first five locations and changed slightly for the last four. Scoring will be adjusted and annual totals added soon. _______________________________ Note: The 2018-19 snowfall contest is probably done with no snow chances in the DEN forecast or on any maps out to 384h, so you can find the latest updated table in the March thread; RodneyS is the winner.

Our consensus is very close to the top of the NHC range.
  14. Okay so that's 13 more named storms, a total of 14 counting the one already recorded in May ... care to mention how many will be hurricanes and of those, major hurricanes? I will enter your numbers scaled to the contest normal in the absence of any further numbers. Thanks. And in general, we have reached the deadline now, so a table of entries will be posted soon.
