Round 1: Casper, WY
« on: May 05, 2013, 12:50:40 AM »
Welcome to Round 1 of the TWCT/TWCC Forecasting Contest!  Your first city is Casper, WY.  The NWS daily climate summary for the ASOS at the airport just northwest of this city (METAR ID:  KCPR) will be the official verification.  You may use anything to make your forecasts, but please make it your own effort.  Your Day 1 forecast of the high and low temperatures, the probability of precipitation, and the precipitation amount for Monday, May 6 is due at 12:00:00 AM EDT tonight.  Those who are not in Eastern Time must adjust accordingly.  We will proceed in this topic until all ten forecasting days are completed and a winner is crowned.

If any issues arise with either the forecasts or the verification, please let Andy and I know so that we may fix them.  We will not penalize participants if missing observations occur that cannot be resolved.  Also, we will update the scoring as it progresses, but I will sit out this round to make sure everything runs smoothly.  Please read the rules at this link, because it will be assumed that you understand them completely when you make your first forecast:

Good luck, everyone! B)

Trevor, I hope you meant May 6 on your forecast and that it's just a typo.  I don't want you forecasting the wrong day. :P

Craig, you can always delete your post and make a new one before midnight if you want to change anything.  I'm not going to put any forecasts into the spreadsheet until it's past the deadline. :yes:

KCPR Forecast:

High Temperature: 69F
Low Temperature: 37F
Chance of Precipitation: 20%
Precipitation Amount: 0.02"

Have used MAV/MET blend for 2mT with a slightly decreased low temp value for radiational cooling.  Disregarded ECMWF 2mT as have been too cool. Blend of MET/4km NAM/ECMWF for precip amount and PoP.
