2005 NWIASpotter's Forecasting Contest (WEEK 30)

This forecasting contest will be both a short term and mid-term forecasting contest. You will be given 5 cities from throughout the US. You will forecast the highs and lows for days 1-3 (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday.) Then you will forecast the highs only for days 4-7 (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.) All entries are due by 11:59 EDT on Saturday July 30 for this contest.

This contest is held throughout several weather boards, those including J Squared Weather, Storm2k and TalkWeather.

Results will be posted on the J Squared Weather Forum consistantly throughout the week at this location. And I will also try to post results at all other boards as well...

This will be the first week in the August competition... Good luck to all who participate...

I've talked about adding this contest in Stomtrack before, well I figured now would be a good time to try it out! Hopefully some of you on ST can find some time and complete the contest.. Entries are not due until Saturday night... Good luck to anybody who does participate!
 
Reminder that all entries are due tonight!! Anybody interesting in doing the contest?? Or entering in later weeks as long as the time is available?? I am just looking into wether or not stormtrack will support some entries for it. Thanks!

Okay this was a nice 2 hours of fun! It would be neat if you entered the TWC or Accuweather forecast and see how they rank with everyone else.

Here they are:
SUN: MON: TUE: WED THR FRI SAT
Winnemuca, NV - 98/61 96/56 96/53 95 97 99 96
Houghton Lake, MI- 82/65 90/64 90/62 88 85 80 82
Poteau, OK- 100/70 101/71 102/73 102 100 102 99
Lebannon, NH- 78/56 79/59 87/62 86 85 82 81
Waycross, Georgia 88/74 92/76 93/74 93 92 94 92
 
I've thought about that... It would be an interesting idea, or the NWS forecast for those areas! Might be something to do in the future...

Oh and it won't take as long once you get used to it... Today I did mine in around 30-45 minutes.
 
Yeah it would be neat to enter the TWC and NWS into the whole mix. Then of course you would probably need a scrip to add everything up and get rankings. Actually I took two hours because I wanted to be thorough and look at other factors which may affect the tempature. :)
