WIN A PRIZE - THIS YEARS HIGHEST TEMP'

Post by darrog » Fri Jun 25, 2010 11:59 pm

I must be mad.
For a little fun and light amusement and the chance of winning a £10 book voucher, a quiz.

What will be this years highest temp' in Cumbria?

One entry per person, all entries must be by midnight 30.6.10. and whilst not part of the competition, you might want to include the date, site and a few reasons why.

The highest temp' will be taken from those sites included on the Cumbrian weather report.

I will give a £10 book token to the person who gets the EXACT temp' - otherwise a £5 token to the person who is the nearest, under or over.
I will then carry over the other £5 to the winter and the coldest temp' comp (but I won't be upping it to £10 for an exact guess, unless someone goes 1/2's with me.)
I am also allowed to enter!

Keswick - I think that is a very good bet !

Perhaps go for Ambleside but will we be to access the data ?

I will go for Penrith ( Newton Rigg ) and 29.1 3rd week in August (23rd)

No real reason behind it.

Unless we get a hot east /north-easterly then it'll be the west coast, officially St Bees, Walney or Eskmeals I guess

Hot southerly Carlisle or Drumburgh, SE'ly depends on how windy it is - if it a decent breeze I'll wager I'm the hottest being directly downwind from Scafell with a nice Foehn affect thrown in!

Looking at GFS 850 mb temps for next weekend I've possibly underestimated by several degrees if it comes off. :o Its looking warmer than July 2006. :shock:
Dry ground, a warm week before hand that would potentially be most of the county > 30C, favoured spots possibly up to 32-33C and possibly a county record.

..on the other hand the ECMWF is more realistic, with maxes more likely to be 25-27C (and Keswick at about 28.5C ;). That's if it isn;t just warm thundery rain that we get.

Chaps, like the answers so far, under or over 30c?

Paul - you slightly surprise me with an August date and late in Aug' at that - the last 4yrs has seen the warmest day in July x3, otherwise Julys warmest is far in excess of Aug's warmest.

So to try and keep my own book token:

location = Seaton
temp' = 29.8c
date = the 3rd weekend of July 17/18th - good weather does seem to have fallen on weekends this year.

Remember, the warmest as appears on the CWR - winner announced in September.

Paul - no probs, the token is just for the temp' - the other bits are merely a discussion point.

I have yet to record 25c at MM (24.6c the highest) - beginning to wonder if I will even beat 25c?
50-50 at best?

Not sure now if we will ever get above 21c this month !

Perhaps we should look towards winter, I dont think anyone is going to win the competition
