Metoffice CET page now moved on to 2023 and no change to 2022 data.
So it appears that AP Snowman can be congratulated as the 2022 winner despite being 0.78c out with his Dec prediction.
It would have been good to see someone winning with a bold prediction as JMM2005 tried, but as ever the play safe route prevailed.
Last year's winner SSWD was narrowly behind in third with the first 3 only covered by 0.04c. See table below.
Any of the top 7 in the table at the end of November could have won the annual contest with a correct predicion in December.
Thanks to everyone taking part in what has been a fair and well mannered contest and for all the messages of encouragement I have been given.
Thanks also to Hipydave for the quality charts he has produced of late, something I am incapable of.
A mention also for all those towards the bottom of the table for remaining in the contest to the end when it is so easy just to quietly step aside when results are not going well . A total of 30 completed the year, a reduction of only 5 from when I started in April.
