Shame we didn’t quite make 50 but still a good number and we may entice more in next month. Let’s hope we don’t get too many falling by the wayside!   

I'm surprised there isn't more take up. Especially so considering the number of experts and pundits in the MO thread !

I think the MO thread attracts quite a few ‘seasonal’ posters who only appear with the cold or the heat.  No staying power eh?

I think that this is shown by the fact that it is only really during the winter months that the MO thread is actually all that busy (even more so, on those very rare occasions when we actually get some proper winter weather). During the rest of the year though, the MO thread is usually always very quiet to the extent that I have on the odd occasion even seen it being relegated to page 2 on the default list of threads on this forum.

Perhaps people spend more time outside enjoying the real weather at other times of the year rather than staring at “potential weather” on a screen?

Hi Global

I wanted to put a guess in for the annual CET but was expecting a different thread for that. Is it too late to submit my entry?

I suggest you PM GW Gez; it's late, probably too late, but worth a try and you might expect a penalty unless you've mitigating circumstances.

Aww!  I agree he should pm GW!  It’s still early in the month/year and it’s still anybody’s guess with little clue from the models!  Go on GW, let him join the fun!

If GW does accept that late entry, we have then have 50 entrants after all.

Not quite. Gez is talking about the other competition to predict the CET for the whole of 2019. He is already in the January competition.

There is a separate thread for the other competition but I don't open up a new one each year. I just rename the existing thread as it only has a few pages to it. It is stickied and I will post the list of predictions there later this evening. No problem to have additional entries in that competition given we are only 4 days into the 365 day year. So no real advantage for making a prediction a couple of days late.

I have just updated the opening post on page 1 of the other thread and the thread title so it now only refers to 2019.

Entries to the other competition can be made up to 2359 on 7th Jan (same deadline as last year).

I will try and post up the annual CET predictions in the other thread tomorrow evening.

Here is the table for January. A nice spread of predictions. Surely somebody will be very close.

I've noticed that my guess for this month is sandwiched right in between your guess and Darren S.'s guess, and very close to both of them. This means that if Darren S. wins this time, I won't be far behind him.

I know that I submitted my entry for the annual competition at the same time as my entry for this month, but I am pleased that those members who haven't yet submitted their prediction for this year as a whole, still have a chance to do so. Hopefully, we can get a good number of entries for that as well.
