MAX to date ______________ 99 __ 95 __ 98 ____ 95 __ 95 __ 97 _____101 __ 115 __ 95 

_____________________________________

15th _ Predictions for past week assessed as medium with average error (compare red lines) 1.03 deg. Next week looking hot in most areas except SEA. 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. DEN prelim high of 99 on 18th. 

19th _ DEN moved up to 101 today.

20th _ DCA, NYC, BOS and ORD all moved up in seasonal max today. 

21st _ DCA and BOS moved up again today. 

22nd _ The previous week forecast had the highest accuracy rating I can recall, average error only 0.28 deg F. The coming week looks a bit cooler than average in many of the locations which will bring the anomalies down towards the high end of our forecast range. It seems that IAH will come in near the low end, so all nine stations could be in play for an extreme forecast. Scoring will be adjusted from the values posted yesterday as some provisionals are now well above high forecast, notably BOS and ORD. 

29th _ Some problems with the data base at NWS for BOS, ORD and DEN, could not update their anomalies this morning, but now updated. Have adjusted NYC, ATL and PHX provisionals. All appear to be headed higher than high forecast now so this generally reduces all scores by the same amount (except that Tom with late penalties drops less). BOS may be headed for max-60 scoring (rank ordered, at the moment there is a raw 60, if the max slips below that, we go to best of rank order scoring or raw scores, whichever higher -- with eleven forecasts, this will be 60, 54, 48, 42, 36, 30, 24, 18, 12, 6, 0 but looks like lower ones would be raw scores in that case so higher than the progression). This could also happen at ORD. 

1st __ Final anomalies posted, scoring updated by noon EDT.
