Competition - Pin the tail on the Bertha!


Recommended Posts

Just for a bit of fun, and thanks to Jo for coming up with it, it's competition time!

 

It's a bit like pin the tail on the donkey, except it's a game of pin the tail on the bertha.. Quite simply just download the blank map below, then use an image editor to mark where you think the remnants of hurricane Bertha will be centred at 12:00GMT (midday) on Sunday (free online one is available here: http://pixlr.com/editor/ ).

 

Then post up your marked up map with the depth in mb that you expect Bertha to be at that time.

 

Closest guesses on both location and depth get a 3 month NW Extra sub - if the same person gets them both then the prize will be a 12 month sub.

 

Good luck :D

Forgot to add, competition closes at midnight tonight - no more entries will be accepted (for winning prizes at least) after that time.

Well, just for a laugh really as I can re-call quite a few times storms have had the centre pass over my area...

 

I have marked the centre above the Bristol area come 1200hrs Sunday, with a pressure reading of 996mb.

I will probably be wrong but why not have a go ey? :D

My laptop is playing up at the moment so I'll write my guess and try to do the map later if possible so I can still enter:

 

I'm going for the centre being almost exactly halfway between Bristol and Swindon at a pressure of 994mb.

 

EDIT: Trying again:

Just an idea, but maybe we should state the rough position of the centre (.e.g 'over Stonehenge area') as well as marking it on the map, cos the blobs are quite big!

This is too challenging for OFS - I've clicked on the ensemble map and come up with the grid points in the graph - will that work as an entry?

 

50.1 north  2.9 west

 

Pressure 986

Those coordinates are somewhere over Germany. You can get coordinates from the map here http://www.earthtools.org/
