SEA needs to hit 56 for me to tie, 57 for me to win. That will be tough w/ the clouds.

If you had DC sun power, maybe. Lol.


Unofficially a high of 55 for SEA and 62 for PDX. If that holds, then these are the final standings.

Frontal Snowsquall -39
Phil -41
Jesse -48

Jesse and Phil tally up the scores to confirm this to see if I made any errors.

Thanks Jesse for putting this contest together and also to Phil for participating. However I'm not going to accept being the winner. I just copied TWC for SEA and for PDX I tweaked some numbers around. Maybe most people just tweak numbers around, I don't know. However it's pretty funny I just copied the forecast for SEA. Hope everybody got a good laugh at that one. I know I did.

Yeah more people need to participate. The 3 of us here showed we are probably the most passionate about weather.

I basically copied from an aggregate of modeled soundings at said locations..so maybe my guesses were tainted too.

That’s one reason I like the seasonal forecast contest..we can’t rip off numbers from anything. It’s all instinct and pattern recognition, with some analoging thrown in.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to the seasonal forecast contest. I'm going to try and put a lot of effort into it. I know you're going to bring it along with everybody else. I want to see how well I stack up to everybody else. It's also a way to see everybody's forecast through September. It's going to be on paper so we can look back and see what want right and wrong for everybody.
