    Default April Contest - Highest Low Temperature

    We have a new contest:

    The rules (there are always rules...)

    1. The guesses are for the highest low temperature at the summit for the month of April, 2011
    2. The source of data to determine the winner is the F6 report for April
    3. Entries can be submitted at any time up to 11:59:59 PM on March 25th, 2011
    4. Entries must be whole numbers. Any factions will be rounded by the Administrative Staff in a manner determined by the staff at the time with an objective of not creating duplicates, if at all possible. If this is not possible, the guesser will be asked to guess again.
    5. Only one entry is allowed per ID on the forum
    6. Duplicate entries will not be allowed
    7. There is no need to guess where the warm cold air is coming from
    8. The winner is the closest guess to the F6 reported results.
    9. Any altering of the data by adding cold or warm air to the instruments is not allowed
    10. If the exact minimum temperature is not guessed, then the closest (over or under), is the winner. This means there could be two winners.
    11. All rulings by the Administrative Staff are arbitrary and final.

    Let the guessing begin.

    Rules, rules, rules! My guess for highest lowest temp is 27 degrees.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    I'm confused!!
    What the heck is a "highest low"? Can someone enlighten me where you would find this data on the F6 report? Or could someone explain next weekend when we meet up in Mystic?

    Leave it to BB.

    Karen, if I'm correct, it's the highest temp in the Minimum Temp column for the month. For example, on April 2010's F6, day 1 is 34, day 2 is 39, etc.

    Bob, if you're correct then would the "highest low" for April 2010 be Day 3 (44)?

    Yes, that would be the winning number.

    You are correct. Look at the Low Temperature column and the winner is the one who picks the highest number for the month. The warmest day.
