where do we compare at this stage to 2012 - wonder if we can break the Annual rainfall record?

Q1 2012 was probably drier than average given Feb and March. It was April-December that the rain came.

Was 2012 the wettest overall for EWP? - presume it was given England was 1st and Wales 3rd wettest, NI was dryer though.

Combined CET - EWP rankings for winter (and annual contest to date) 2019-20

After successfully opening the CET file, here are the combined rankings of all participants so far. The CET contest allows a full ranking for everybody who entered any of the three contests. (you drop out of the main scoring table there if you miss more than two in the contest year). The EWP ranks are simply the sum of scores to date. I will mark one-month CET entrants with an asterisk if they did not enter March, because that would mean they are not going to appear in future CET scoring ranks. The ranks show all CET participants, as there are no cases of EWP forecasters who did not enter the CET contest, so then the only-CET forecasters appear where their CET rank places them. The number in brackets after the average rank is the overall rank of forecasters in the combined ranking contest (skipping each CET-only rank). 

There were 154 CET rankings and 132 of them had EWP rankings. At this early stage I don't mark those few cases where the number of CET and EWP entries is different. Nor do I show how many contests have been entered almost all of the one-contest entrants can be seen from the asterisks.

^ Shillitocet CET ranking changed from 72nd to 61st by merger of two previous entrants (S and S-two). I had already ignored S-two in determining ranks so the only changes come to those who were between 61st and 71st, they all drop one spot. A few other ranks had variations. Changes have been made to the table.

As per above, I have merged the scores for Shillitocet and Shillitocettwo.

It has no real impact in the rankings and the top 30 are uneffected, but here are the slightly revised figures for completeness.
