December 2016 Temperature Forecast Contest

39 posts in this topic

The final month of the 2016 contest sees very close races in both the "original six" and western contests; Don Sutherland has a bit of a lead going into the all nine final roundup. See November thread for scoring updates, last time I looked it was a matter of a few points separating top thrree or four in both divisions. 

So the challenge for December is to predict the temperature anomaly (F deg) relative to 1981-2010 normal values for

 

DCA __ NYC __ BOS ____ ORD __ ATL __ IAH ____ DEN __ PHX __ SEA

This is also the first month of the 2016-17 "four seasons" portion of the forthcoming 2017 contest year. As a result, I am publicizing this forecast contest in all the regional threads. I am hoping to restore the numbers back to at least 30 forecasters, if you can think of any members of the forum who might enjoy this challenge, send them a PM with this link. 

Late penalties as always, 1% for every 2 hours or portion after the deadline to 18z 2nd, then increased to 1% per hour until we reach the expiration of scoring by 04z 6th. 

Scoring rules (for new entrants) -- each location is worth 100 points. You receive 2 point deductions for every 0.1 deg error. But if the actual value turns out to be 5.1 (pos or neg) or larger, points fall off at a rate of 1 point per 0.1 deg in two zones, 5.0 to actual, and a similar zone 0.0 to x.x -- example, if actual anomaly is 7.0, then one point scoring deduction zones are 0.0 to 2.0 and 5.0 to 7.0. Example of how this scores: you predict +4.5, the actual is +7.0. You lose ten points for being under +5.0 and a further twenty for the range 5.0 to 7.0 ... your score is 70. If you had predicted +8.0, your score would be 90. 

The contest year is the calendar year, but as noted above, there is a "four seasons" component, entrants receive points (10, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1) for a top ten finish each season. The 2017 contest year winter portion starts with this month, Dec 2016. The main contest is scored by the original six stations, the three western stations, and all nine. Scoring is provided as quickly as possible and from the foundation of provisional scoring near the end of the month based on projected anomalies as we track changes in the actual and forecast values. Scoring is usually updated by the end of the first day of the next month. We also track "extreme forecasts" which are those successful forecasts near the limits of the range of forecasts. You would be surprised how many months qualify for this, more than half since we started tracking this in 2014. That means that, on average, about six months out of ten will see a high score from either the extreme forecast or the second most extreme (those are the conditions for the month and forecasts to qualify).

welcome (back) to H2Otown_WX and so_whats_happening, I have set up the table of entries as usual with highest and lowest forecasts color coded, and the Consensus is the median value, now the 10th ranked values for each location. (full regular field on hand now ... it's going to be a dogfight to the end).

No problem, always hate to impose late penalties but you're not that late, I am calculating 6% for 12 hours. 

On the sort of forecasts I make, that wouldn't even be noticeable. :)

 

(consensus reset will be worked out in table, anyone looking for table of entries scroll back two posts) ...

** or **** months not played

H2OTown_Wx entered Jan, Feb, Mar and Dec. In those four months, scores were compared with consensus and they ranked close to 10th in western, 15th in all nine and 18th in original six locations. Using the same comparison and pro-rating, Tenman Johnson would rank around 14th in all contests and OHweather around 9th.

EXTREME FORECAST UPDATE

________________________________________________________

 

With four more extreme forecasts probable in December, the 2016 total will be 61 out of 108, or 57% of the cases. About 53 of those were won outright by the most extreme forecast and the other eight were scooped by second most extreme forecast with the extreme getting the "loss" in the standings. Any other outcome such as third most extreme forecast having the best score does not qualify. This month, DCA (+2.1) missed qualifying by 0.1, otherwise tied second highest forecasts (+2.4) would have shared high score with Maxim (+2.0). NYC and BOS were safely within the range of forecasts. DEN had been running colder than our extreme low forecast of --3.2 from RodneyS, but a late surge up to 2.2 passed both him and Stebo at --2.8, then also blazesss556 at --2.6 and penalty-hampered BKViking at --2.4 with high score settling at fifth most extreme Dmillz25 (--2.0).  It was a similar situation at SEA (--2.6) which faded out of contention for two tied at --3.0 (Midlo and BKViking who are both losing points on late penalties) who both finished  lower in points than Stebo (--2.6) or blazess556 (--2.4). This would have made the table at --2.8 or colder.

The other four have as expected qualified for extreme forecasts ...

 

ORD (--2.7) goes to Roger Smith (--2.5, lowest forecast)

ATL (+3.6) is a win for H2OTown_Wx (+3.1, highest forecast) 

IAH (+4.2) goes to RodneyS (+3.2, highest forecast)

PHX (+2.5) is a win for Mallow (+2.1, highest forecast) 

 

UPDATED STANDINGS (Final for 2016)
 

Damage in Tolland ____9-0

Midlo Snow Maker ____8-1

Maxim _____________ 7-1

RodneyS ___________ 7-3*

Rjay _______________ 6-2

Roger Smith _________6-2

Mallow _____________ 5-0

Tenman Johnson _____3-0

DonSutherland.1 _____ 3-0

dmillz25 ____________ 3-0

wxallannj ___________ 3-0*

ksammut ___________ 2-0

Blazess556 __________2-0

hudsonvalley21 ______ 1-0

BKViking ___________ 1-0

OHweather __________1-0

SD ________________ 1-0

Tom _______________ 1-0

H2OTown_Wx _______ 1-0

Stebo ______________ 1-1

debeaches __________ 0-3

 

*plus two "no decisions" __ RodneyS and Quincy (they were closer by forecast back in April, but lost on time penalties to the high scores, and same for wxallannj (PHX, Oct). 

Well done to Damage in Tolland (9-0) who was first overall in extreme forecasts, close second to Midlo Snow Maker (8-1) and a solid third for Maxim (7-1) who was matched in wins by RodneyS (7-3).
