A few days late but no doubt the hottest days of 2023 are some distance away ... so as always, predict the highest temperatures to be expected this summer at the four airports:

DCA

IAD

BWI

RIC

and I will start the ball rolling with 102, 102, 103 and 103. 

Contest deadline 06z June 17 (which is Friday night). 

Tie-breaker details in a post in thread (lowest errors break ties, order of entry the last level separating ties)

Tie-breaker system as follows ...

(1) Scores are based on total error. 

(2) Forecasters with same total will be ranked according to these tiebreakers:

__ (a) _ Lowest maximum error. For example, 1,1,1,1 beats 2,0,1,1

__ (b) _ Lowest second highest error if (a) fails to separate. 2,1,1,0 beats 2,2,0,0

__ (c) _ Lowest third highest error if (a) and (b) fail, e.g., 3,2,1,1 beats 3,2,2,0.

__ (d) _ Order of entry will separate exactly similar errors. 1,1,1,1 on June 7 beats 1,1,1,1 on June 10. 

+++++++++++++++

Contest will close at end of this week, the current values for seasonal max are

DCA __ 94 on June 2nd

IAD ___ 93 on June 2nd

BWI ___ 97 on June 2nd

RIC ___ 89 on Apr 20, 21 (87 on June 2)

Table of entries as of June 13 

Entrants can still modify these forecasts and new forecasts can be entered up until end of Friday June 16th.

Order of entry is shown in brackets. A revised forecast will result in a new later order of entry. As contest host, I will not have an order of entry, so anyone who ties me in total error will be ahead in rankings. Tiebreakers are explained in a previous post.
