Thanks to Moa for such a great idea on the May contest and also for coming up with the May contest, I'm going to change it up a little bit for June. This month you will need to guess on how many days the high temperature will be above 55 degrees. Rules are pretty much the same as they have been:

1. One submission per forum ID
2. There can be no duplicates. First person to submit a particular number will own that guess.
3. If the proper answer is not selected by anyone, the winner will be the closest guess, without going over, according to the
F6 report.
4. The official source of data is the Daily F6 as published on the Observatory's web site.
5. Anyone & everyone will be allowed to enter.
6. Most of all... Have Fun!!!

Good luck everyone with contest!

Since this year is starting off a bit cooler than others, or so it seems, I'll go low with 5 days.

It's nice to see the new people putting guesses in for the monthly contest, but the deadline has past to enter for this month. Be sure to keep an eye out for the July contest. I will be coming up with that one in the next week or so. Working to come up with a the new contest.

Speaking of this month, we currently are standing at 2 days above 55 degrees according to the F6 report. Bill is still sitting in the drivers seat for the month!

I see someone with the name sean456 also guessed 13 in the May contest, just joined the forum, & only has 1 post. It looks like the same deal going on with kaichang107.
Is this legit? Seems odd to me. Can a moderator verify this?

Curious what you mean by;"Is this legit"?
It looks like the last two people who posted a guess for the June contest, joined the forum in June 2013. Nothing odd about that to me, except they guessed a few days into the contest.

Side Note: I don't see a deadline to guess posted in the rules :cool: having said that, I don't think the last two guesses should be allowed.

Good catch Prez! I thought for sure that I put an end date on there. :confused: Guess thats what happens when you work to many days starting at 3 AM. Thats my excuse and I'm sticking to if ;)

If you re read what I wrote you will notice that one guess is for the May contest, not the June contest. So that makes three people who joined & made their one & only post a contest guess. Coincidence maybe? Maybe not...

I read what you wrote........
Why does it matter that they joined and their only post was the contest(s)? They have to start somewhere and the contest(s) may have been the most recent post. To be honest, I'm missing your point.

Still standing at 2 days that are above 55 degrees. Month is half over at this point. Will a warm up come for the second half of the month to push that number higher or will it stay on the cool side. Only mother nature and the mountain know. Stay tuned!

Just in enough time to put all of us in the running. Well, except BAXTERCA2 who is already out. :(

YES I'm out but, I never really expected the "RockPile" to hit 15 days :cool:.

It's 57* now and tomorrow is expected to be around the same temp so that will give us 5days as of this Wednesday's F6 update. Good Luck everyone!

5 days have now seen temps above 55 degrees. At the time of this posting, I noticed that the summit is reading 55.1, so that will be day number 6. If no other days get added on, then Sdways01 will be the winner for the month.

Looks like KathyC is in the lead now. But with the forecast for today, Whitemtnvisitor still has a shot. Guess my winning streak is over.

And the winner is - WhiteMtnVisitor. Perfect guess of 8 days above 55 degrees. Congrats and enjoy the victory this month. As a reminder - the guesses for the July contest are open until 11:59:59 PM at 7/3!

Thanks everyone. It was interesting to watch the last couple of days. I thought Saturday would have been over 55, but the cloud cover must have kept the temps in check for the day. The forecast for Sunday sounded like it would easily break the 55 mark, but I noticed as the temps were rising, there was a bit of a downward dip just before it approached the magic threshold of 55. It had me wondering for a short while. These contests are so much fun because it keeps you checking the weather a little closer & a little more consistently.
Good Luck to Everyone in July!!
