The models keep saying Dorian may flirt with Florida's west coast in the coming days. Maybe the contest will catch the tail end of that? Extreme QPF forecasts!  :biggrin:  :rofl2:

The Day 2 forecasts have been entered, so you may now submit your Day 3 forecast for Wednesday, July 31.  Mac will appear as the leader to start this round, but he has once again gone absent by missing the deadline tonight and will be penalized.  Here are the Day 1 results:

Sorry for the long delay, but a very unfortunate thing happened last night to me.  My laptop completely crashed to where Windows wouldn't load at all, and I lost everything. :cry:  I had to install Windows 7 from scratch, and it has taken me 12 straight hours to even get close to having most of the basics finished.  I will have to redo my scoring spreadsheet as my backup copy is from a couple months ago, so please keep proceeding in this round as normal, but don't expect any score updates from me until hopefully the end of this week.
