Anyone think they know what the minimum temperature will be on the summit this month???

Guesses in by 12 midnight, Cinco De Mayo. :D

I'm going with 15 degrees F.

I'm going with 12. I'm smart. I'll let you in on a little secret on Seis de Mayo.

If you're looking for a reality check its May. The average low is 30F. Unlike January, February or even March each day you advance makes a huge difference. Its only getting warmer.

If you don't guess below 12 you'll lose.

I'm going with 12. ....Dang! that would have been my guess. Well 11 and 10(twice) are taken too so I will say 9 F.

Bill O, I already looked ;)

Already squeezed out. There is a full moon coming up at the middle of the month but thinking it will be colder than now is a stretch. 12 degrees will probably win. Is the data available to more accuracy than whole degrees?

8 degrees does not have a chance of winning. It is the next lowest I can take unless we can go with tenths. Is there a data source for the temp with tenths to determine a winner?

There is, but its not statistically significant. Daily high and low temperatures are rounded to the nearest whole degree.

We'll talk more about this tomorrow.

The polls are closed.

When this was originally posted, the low temp for the month was already 12 degrees on May 1st. When you look back at May 2007's F-6 you see the coldest day of the month was May 1st and it got 10 degrees warmer (as the low temp of the day) by the time you got to the end of the month. The chances of it going lower than 12 degrees this month is slim to none.

Bill O is probably the winner.

I concur. I wasn't cheating, I was just using all my sources. If this was November it would be a different story, but given the time frame maybe a high temperature contest would have been more appropriate. Oh well, maybe next month.

Well, what can I say, I guess I should do a little more homework before starting a contest.:o

How 'bout that high for May?...:D

That makes sense - how about starting a new thread so the subject will be right?

As we all expected, Bill O was right and is the winner of this one. Although if it hadn't been for that 12 degrees on the first day of May I would have been really close with my 15 degree guess. Oh well, thats how it goes.
