So Frank did a 2013-14 Winter Contest thread where he gave away a $20 Amazon gift card.  And I recall that on the old 7-online Chat board, there would be a thread for warm weather guesses, so I though we could do one here.  However, this one will not be for any prizes, just for fun.  Sorry about that.  But here are the questions.  

The first seven questions are for Central Park, NY, NOT your home town:

1 ) First 80 degree day May 10th (Tom)
2 ) First 90 degree day,
3 ) Number of 90+ degree days
4 ) Number of 100+ degree days
5 ) Longest heat wave (most consecutive days at or above 90)
6 ) Hottest temperature
7 ) Hottest day

The last two questions are for the Atlantic basin (Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Gulf of Mexico), not just storms that impact NYC:

8 ) Number of named storms
9 ) Number of hurricanes

I will do mine first:

1 ) April 29th
2 ) May 28th
3 ) 14
4 ) 0
5 ) 4
6 ) 97
7 ) July 15th
8 ) 12
9 ) 3

I would like to hear what yours are.  The deadline for guesses is Sunday night.

Well, today was Central Park's first 80 degree day, the first time since 2000 that it occurred after April and the latest since 1997 (first 80 degree day that year was May 19th). And Tom guessed it right on the nose so he gets a point.

Well it hit 89 today in Central Park. It may hit 90 tomorrow, but if it doesn't, we may not have our first 90 degree day in awhile (if it ever does come)

Well, after waiting awhile, it finally hit 90 in Central Park, NY today. And algae888 hit it right on the nose (July 2nd).

Just realized... I thought number 5 meant "how many heat waves" 

Talk about mis-reading. Obviously two is invalid since you need at least three to justify a heat wave.

Just so you know, I put in parentheses most consecutive 90 degree days. If we do not get an official heat wave this summer (3 straight days at 90+) then the longest stretch would be 2 days, even if it does not warrant a heat wave.

Well it got up to 92 degrees today making it (at this point) the hottest day of the year. The latest anyone had for the hottest day of the year was Dtone (August 4th). So he wins that guess.

Well, I waited until after 2014 ended to determine all of the correct guesses for this "contest". So here they are:

The first seven questions are for Central Park, NY, NOT your home town:

1 ) First 80 degree day: May 10th (Tom)
2 ) First 90 degree day: July 2nd (algae888)
3 ) Number of 90+ degree days: 8 (algae888)
4 ) Number of 100+ degree days: 0 (tie between me, amugs, and algae888)
5 ) Longest heat wave (most consecutive days at or above 90): 2 (Frank)
6 ) Hottest temperature: 92 (amugs was the closest)
7 ) Hottest day: September 2nd (Dtone was the closest)

The last two questions are for the Atlantic basin (Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Gulf of Mexico), not just storms that impact NYC:

8 ) Number of named storms: 8 (tie for closest between me, amugs, and dtone)
9 ) Number of hurricanes: 6 (Tom)

Totals:

algae888: 2 + (1/3) points
Tom: 2 points
amugs: 1 + (2/3) points
Dtone: 1 + (1/3) points
Frank: 1 point
Me: (2/3) points
