2016-17 Lakes/Ohio valley snowfall contest

35 posts in this topic

I was waiting to see if this contest thread would appear; as we are now very close to November, I decided to post a contest thread. Hope nobody minds ... it will be exactly the same as last winter even the tie-breakers are the same. 

Post your predictions of total winter snowfall (including anything already recorded -- season ends officially June 30th, contest will probably run to mid-May at latest) for these 20 locations. I have included the 1986-2015 averages as provided last year, and last season's snowfalls. (note Nov 15, apparently I posted the average of last year's forecasts rather than the 1986-2015 averages, this mistake has been corrected below, on average the forecasts were 90% of the normals, check your forecasts to see if you want to make any changes -- the deadline has been extended to Friday night Nov 18th.)

Three tie-breaker questions follow. 

 

LOCATION _______________ 1986-2015 _____ 2015-16

Alpena, MI (APN) _____________ 80.4 _______ 88.8

Chicago, IL (ORD) ____________ 38.1 _______ 31.2

If you want to see individual years in the 1986-2015 period, check last year's contest thread (recently bumped to top of page), post number one there has a table of the 30 years in the period used. 

Entries will be accepted until end of the day Friday, Nov 18th (2359 CST). You can edit entries before that time as the table of entries will be done on Nov 19th (using an excel table format). Good luck !!

Late entries (Nov 19 to 30) will be scored but cannot place higher than 6th, enter for the fun of it if you want though. Entries that appear in the thread after Nov 30 will not be scored.

Well, I think it might be a very snowy winter as the region ends up in the sweet spot of an amplified pattern. 

So will go for these numbers

I'm not really sure what to think about this winter. Last winter really wasn't all that bad snow wise compared to normal I feel for the Midwest other then maybe Cleveland when I look at that list. Most other locations were about average which considering there was a crazy warm el nino going on it could, and probably should have, been way worse. I'm going to go against what most everyone else is thinking and go with a slightly warmer and slightly less snowy winter for our sub forum.

Those averages look a little low for all cities. Is this perhaps excluding Nov &/or Apr?

I have not had time to look at all of the locations on the list but for the Michigan locations yes all of them (the given averages) are below the averages.

Hi. I signed up just to post on this! I love winter and I feel like I'm pretty good with betting markets :)

I'm going to guess lower than normal outside lake effect belts. Pretty much certain to be higher for YXU and MQT unless we torch.

I like the way you think. 105" is really high though, we haven't hit triple digits since '10-'11 which was a crazy winter.

Just to clarify, we are predicting total winter snowfall from let's say end of summer 2016 to start of summer 2017. Not any smaller portion of the season. Anyone is free to edit their forecasts or repost them, I won't be creating a table of entries until after the deadline so late edits won't be a problem for you.

Basing my educated guessing on a front sided quick to switch winter and an early spring. LES belts might be the big winners this season, hoping everyone get a few juicy+cold systems overhead.

Notice to contest entrants

_________________________________

 

An error took place in the list of 1986-2015 averages in post number one. What you may have seen there were the averages of last year's contest entries. These were roughly 90% of actual normals with some variation. I have posted the right values for 1986-2015 now. 

You may have based your forecasts on those averages, so I am extending the deadline three days from now (almost) to Friday night at midnight. If you feel like revising any forecasts, just edit your post, I have not started a table. Sorry about the confusion, some had noted this possibility but at first I thought perhaps they were thinking of higher 1981-2010 normals.

I just spotted the error as I reviewed my excel file from last winter's contest. 

While I was editing post number one, I added the 1981-2010 averages for the three tie-breaker questions, used those last winter as they were more easily accessible than going 1986-2015 on those. 

Since the tie-breakers are not really likely to be needed, we'll just have a separate contest for those three predictions.

So to summarize, you have three more days to revise or just enter for the first time.

Thanks for your entries, the contest is now sealed as far as edits or new entries. 

I have made up an excel file of the entries; these are the averages of the 17 entries for each location. The departure is relative to the (corrected) 1986-2015 averages.

(edited Dec 28th to show the minimum and maximum of our forecasts)

^ APN adjusted on Jan 2nd as Dec 14th now shown as 1.4" in CF6 data.

* YXU data updates a day or two behind recent data, as of Dec 31st total Nov-Dec snowfall of 73.0 cm, which is 28.7 inches. (nothing reported yet for 13th but another report says 0.4 mm liquid equivalent with temps below freezing, so if never reported I am counting this as 0.5 cm, hence working total is 73.5 cm, which is 28.9". No report for Dec 25th yet in that total, not expecting any snow from that missing day. 

** YYZ are updated to Dec 31st with 1.0 cm added on 31st, and 0.4 cm on 30th, now 42.6 cm or 16.8" in total.
