Let's get a new contest going. Guess the date when the summit will have the highest temperature in the month of June based on the daily F6 report.

The F6 report can be found at
http://www.mountwashington.org/weather/f6/


Rules:

- On the daily F6 report the column labeled "MAX" for temperature will be the official data source.

- Entries (guesses) can be made starting now.

- All entries must be made and dated by this forum to be no later than 11:59 PM on Monday, June 7th.

- Employees of any company claiming to be able to alter the weather are not allowed to win. They may enter if they wish.

- If a date has been selected by more than one person, only the first entry will be valid.

- Once a guessed date has passed, that entry is no longer valid.

- If the actual date is not guessed, then the person who guesses the next calendar date is the winner.

- The winner will receive a hearty round of applause from all participants and lurkers.

But Karen, the 26th is the full moon. So, that day will be sunny, clear visibility, clear cool night. But, the daytime on the 26th will be hot.

You know BB, I didn't think about the moon factor. I did however think, hmm I'll be camping that week so, pick a day during that time frame. Reality is it's probable going to be earlier than either of us picked. On the other hand this could Charlie's year for GOLD :) Let's see how he picks.

I am thinking the July contest should be to pick the actual high temperature - not the date.

how about you pick a high temp for each week .that way it will keep us looking and not have to wait until the end of the month
when you pick the temp you pick all 4 at the same time like
1- ??
2- ??
3- ??
4- ??

just a thought

As of now the highest temp day in June is June 2nd with 57 F degrees!

Based on the rules, right now Gorgue is in the lead.

Brad
06-18-2010, 06:10 PM
It was a hot one here. Will the F6 report for today have a higher temp than 57 to put dvienneau in the lead?

Maybe if I bribe Stacey with the promise of homemade pizza, she'll "fudge" the numbers in my favor for the 18th.

We now see how much influence you have. The high temp for the 18th was 56 degrees. The high for the month still sits at 57 degrees. We need a heat wave.

Bill O

New high set today. I saw 59 in a metar, we'll see how that plays out.

If that is true in the morning, then KSear will move into the lead with plenty of time to be pushed aside.

We are running out of time folks. The high temp for the month is stuck at 62 F on the 19th. We have 3 days (including today) left to break the record and move to another person.

If it didn't happen today (and I'm almost certain that it did not) I think the current leader is going to win. A cold front is moving in later this evening and temps are supposed to drop below freezing by the middle of the week.

We have a winner! With the high temp yesterday being 39 degrees, we closed out the month and contest with June 19th being the highest temp day of June - at 62 degrees. KSearl is the winner!

You may go to the summit any time you want - stand on the deck and take a bow on the quarter hour for the Deck camera to see and record.

One has to get a plug in for Seek The Peak - the premiere event of the month in the U.S.
