Not looking good for my 15.5c guess, but what’s new?  


With regard to month end adjustment, I haven’t a clue!  What’s new?  


But I think we’re due a projection from GW.  He’ll know!

More like 14.7c with little downgrade.

Tend to agree. Just need a couple of wildly fluctuating months to get unpredictability and uncertainty back on track.

Me too. I can see the reasoning behind the suggested changes but there are also years where we have many months with significant anomalies. For these years, you could argue that the new proposed system is biased towards people who take random extreme guesses. I think we should keep it simple.

Ahh, now that was my first thought but it wouldn’t favour wild guesses if bonuses were awarded incrementally.  Although on the other hand, I suppose anyone taking an extreme guess is also taking an extreme risk of being wildly wrong. 


I’m happy with what we’ve got now but I’d also be happy with any changes GW proposes.  It’s worth everyone expressing their thoughts about this.  More heads are better and we all have a stake in the game!

Could always run a Beta test of a new format over the last 4 months of the year, in parallel to the main comp, and see what people think.

  Good idea.  I hadn’t thought of that but somehow, I think GW might already have.

If the bonus for correctly estimating a month that's 2*C from the LTA is a 0.3*C reduction, then one wrong call could easily cost you a great deal more than that bonus.


I think that's the key here for something that works well; small, yet still appreciable bonuses.



I'd be astounded if there was anyone who could reliably anticipate extremely anomalous months and so 'abuse' this system.


Just my two cents


 


. . . . . . .


As for the current CET situation - seems like there's a 3, maybe even 4*C range in the possible CET returns, depending on whether it's sunny as expected and if so, how much the flow off the North Sea is modified by surface heating.


For this reason I've not bothered doing any rough CET estimates; it'll be what it'll be. Not feeling very positive about the likely final CET though. I imagine that even if Friday was widely mid-high 20s and Sunday high 20s to low 30s, that'd still not be enough to get the CET to the 15.0*C mark (which incidentally would be just over halfway along the range of estimations for this month; midpoint is 14.9*C).



I can't help but feel horribly cheated by this unusually strong ridge formation. From researching, it looks like I can blame the exceptionally high Arctic Heights for that - something that I'd expected to be toned down a bit by now but no, it's raging on! Astounding, really.

CET tracker trending lower and lower every day. Today is actually going to be slightly below average would you believe.


Saturday will be very hot but one day does not a month make.


So at present my CET estimate for the whole of June is just 14.15C. As of the 26th it was standing at 13.58C.

Please note I am about to go away on holiday so there will be a long delay in publishing the June data and competition results.


I will post the July CET thread later this evening.

It's been pointed out in the MO thread that July could be autumnal or major heatwave and I would agree at this point. I think it's more likely we'll get a wide range of estimates for July so If GW doesn't have time/inclination to put a bonus system in place this month then perhaps it can wait 😀

Thanks GW!  Not good for my guess but hey-ho!  


Have a lovely holiday. We can wait for results!

 It’ll be a wild guess from me as usual!  


I think GW was considering making the changes for next year!

Just 14.15*C during an El Nino June with a +QBO and predominantly warmer than average SSTs around much of the UK .


I struggle to find much historical precedent for that.


So I think that settles it; either you get lucky or you don't. Simple as that!


 


In light of which, I find myself thinking that I've had so much poor luck lately that surely the tide must turn soon?


That feels like the logic of a gambling addict, except this is much less serious because there's nothing real at at stake.


 


Now, what on Earth to put down for July...!

Any chance of a CET rise of 1c today to rescue my campaign ? .

Hopeful of 15.2 but adjustments will be a downfall.
