View Full Version : STP Day High Temp contest

What will the high temperature be on July 24th - the day of Seek The Peak? Will so many hikers bringing in the money for the Observatory raise the temperature at the summit that day?

Rules:

- On the daily F6 report the column labeled "MAX" for temperature will be the official data source for the high temperature on July 24th.

- 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 Friday, July 16th.

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

- Any person caught holding a heat source of any type near the thermometer to alter the official temp for that day will be banned to the Tip Top House.

- If a specific temperature (whole numbers only) has been selected by more than one person, only the first entry will be valid.

- If the actual temperature is not guessed, then the person who guesses the next higher temperature is the winner, assuming there is a higher guess.

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

My prediction is the temperature will be higher if we raise more money for the Observatory. So, get you guesses in and collect the money for a great cause.

I will go at this in a very scientific way. Last year on STP day we hit a high temperature of 54 F. So, with all the extra people up there this year, I will raise you 1 degree. My entry is 55 F.

That's my best guess and I'm going to win this one, since Charlie won the First Cog up contest.

59 and sunny with light winds and a few friendly clouds drifting by to add some atmosphere to the atmosphere. That's my story and I'm sticking to it...

I'll go on the low side and say 50 degrees so Snow Miser won't melt on his way up.;)

The record high temperature for the summit of Mt Washington is 72 degrees. We just hit 69 degrees at 11:00 am. Anyone want to move their guesses up higher?

I'd like to change my guess to 63 degrees. It appears that this summer might be hotter than normal.
