Well done this week to Weather History, who got it spot on, and takes the lead in the Seasonal comp.

Lincoln Snowstorm DR(S)NO godber were 0.1c out , and are 2nd,3rd and 4th in the Seasonal comp respectively.

 

Overall, March Blizzard stays in the lead Weather-history moves up to 2nd from 3rd, with mulzy back to 3rd from 2nd. Certainly any of these 3 can win the overall comp this year.

 

Figures in usual format.

Latest Scores from the other thread.

 

 

12.5c confirmed as the October figure. This caused most people out, with only Polar Gael getting it spot on.

 

Harve and AtlanticFlamethrower were both 0.1c out.

 

In the seasonal comp, a new leader with Polar Gael taking the lead from Weather History.

 

Overall though Weather History takes the lead from March Blizzard who drops to 3rd, Mulzy stays in 2nd, It seems that the overall comp is between these 3.

 

Scores as usual

If current projections are right then the odds on March Blizzard would currently be being slashed.

Hi J10,

 

Not sure who to address this too...

 

I seem to   have picked up a 10  point penalty which I do not understand  in the CET pdf.

I have twice placed a post holder for months this year, but put in guesses way before the time limit

 

Who can sort it out?

MIA, check the table at a high magnification, I think you are looking at the row above or below your scores where penalties have been applied. Your scores don't have any late penalties.

Sorry for that, I must start wearing my specs....

The wife says I am deaf as well!!

 

I had to put it upto 500 times magnification to see it though.

 

Again sorry for the bother

No probs - by the way you can download the figures in Excel whew you can see them normal size.

 

If anyone has any issues with the scores please let me know

 

Even though it is a fun comp with no prizes, I do want the scores to be correct.

Thanks for all the work you do, J10!

It's an honour to be the new Netweather CET comp champion! Was a close one, though.

Let's see if I can now retain my title...

An adjustment to the above figures, Duncan McAlister quite rightly pointed out that his scores for this month was omitted.

 

The revised figures are attached.

 

Posted ImageJan 2014 CET Revised.pdf  Posted ImageJan 2014 CET Revised.xls

 

For the month, thetonynator was 0.1c out

with Deep Snow Please,reef and BlueSkies_do_I_see and also Duncan McAlister each 0.2 out.

 

There are no impacts to the overall top placings, however Duncan McAlister moves up to 24th place.

 

Apologies for this omission.
