2015-2016 Winter Season Contest  Empty 2015-2016 Winter Season Contest

Post by Frank_Wx Sun Oct 25, 2015 11:11 pm

Once all submissions are in, I will place them on an Excel sheet and upload it here for all of us to track our progress. The prize has not been decided yet, but it will be pretty good. I'll make that known early on.

Notes


  • Questions only apply for December, January, and February (Meteorological winter)
  • Any snow that falls before or after will not count
  • Origin your responses should be based on: Central Park, NY
  • Last day to submit your answers will be November 20th
  • Member who has the most points by March 1st wins. Simple!
  • If there is a tie, a tie breaker question will be thought of in the month of March and only those members participate


#1 (3 points) How much snow will fall in Central Park, NY?

#2 (1 point) Which month will end with the lowest temperature departure?

#3 (1 point) Which month will end with the highest precipitation departure?

#4 (2 points) What will be the lowest minimum temperature?

#5 (2 points) What will be the highest maximum temperature?

#6 (1 point) How many Godzilla's will there be? (12"+ snowstorms)

#7 (1 point) Of TWC's winter storms names list, which name will prove to have the highest NESIS rating? (list found on my post below and applies to ENTIRE COUNTRY).

#8 (4 points) Of the staff members, who will end with the most snow?


  • Frank, sroc, Dunnzoo, QuietAce, amugs, algae88 (hint: if you do not know our locations they're in the Member Map found in the header)


Good luck. Let the force be with you (can't wait until new Star Wars come out).

Please copy and paste the numbers below then put your answers next to them (I am doing this so people avoid copying/pasting the entire question and turning messy. Will help me keep track of responses).

1.

4.

5.
