  1. And we have our first action since the contest was closed for entries, DCA moves up to 97. BWI and RIC tied their previous highs of 96 and 94 (on Friday 3rd). IAD hit 94 but had 95 previously. Table amended to show the new value for DCA, "Actual" remains below most forecasts or in a few cases tied with them, but DCA has now moved past one forecast. I have added total departures to the table. This table will be edited for a week or two if we keep moving up, so if there are later posts, scroll back to it. Location forecasts that are passed by reality will change to italic type.

  4. Final Scoring for June 2020 This scoring is based on the end of month data with all stations now final (see anomaly tracker two posts back). Late penalties are small so there are no separate lines for raw scores and adjusted, the scores presented are after penalties, * for 1 pt deduction and ** for 2 pt deductions. ... Raw scores for ORD were all below 60, so the scoring was adjusted to fit a minimum progression of 60, 55, 50 etc, however, if raw scores were higher than progression values (the lowest forecast) the raw scores were used. The ^ symbol is used when scores are adjusted (^* means progression score reduced by late penalty).

DCA, ORD and PHX are wins for high forecasts, wxallannj takes DCA and RodneyS takes the other two. NYC is a win for second highest forecast (RJay) and a loss for highest forecast wxallannj. ATL and IAH are wins for low forecasts from Don Sutherland, Normal also gets wins for both. BOS, PHX and SEA had best scores near consensus. ____________________________________________________________________________ Annual update will be posted later today. As the scores here are fairly close together, only minor changes will occur in the annual scoring positions.

  9. Table of entries -- 2020 seasonal maxima in the Mid-Atlantic region Forecasts appear by order of BWI predictions, then sorted by DCA, IAD and RIC where tied to that point. Consensus is derived from medians although means would be similar. With 20 forecasts the median is the average of 10th and 11th ranked. The actual maximum to date will move up through this table (we can presume) to its eventual resting place. Later in the contest, a table of departures will be posted to show the evolving results of the contest.

  10. Okay, just a notice that this contest will close for entries at the end of the day Monday, the deadline is set at 06z 16th which is 0200h EDT (after midnight Monday, very early Tuesday) .... I will take entries as shown then so you can edit today or Monday without the need to notify. The table of entries will be based on what I see on Tuesday morning (will have the table of entries up within a few hours of the deadline). Don't forget we are at 3/0/0 so it's that plus whatever you think will happen to end of the year for a prediction of the overall seasonal count. Good luck !!
  11. Monday 15th is the last day for entries or for editing your existing entries. No need to notify on edits, I will construct a table of entries from what I see on Tuesday. You can enter up to the end of the day (06z Tuesday is the cutoff). I will post a closed for entries note and start on the table of entries at that time. Good luck !!

These trends not expected to change much next week, with a buildup of stronger warmth looking set for later in June. The cool regime in the Pac NW appears likely to trend towards subdued warmth later in the month. (16th) _ The forecasts began to unravel somewhat this past week due to the influence of coastal low pressure and a general trend towards cloudiness in eastern and central regions. This is now expected to be a persistent trend and the shrinking positive anomalies may have trouble surviving in any form to end of the month in most cases. The southwest should remain quite warm relative to normal, and the Pac NW will probably remain cooler than normal. (23rd) _ Past week trended a bit warmer than predicted but now looking somewhat cooler again to end of month, with the western heat continuing but fading in the Pac NW after a few hot days here. (1st July) _ Anomalies have been posted and contest scored overnight.
