WEATHERNATOR FORECASTING CONTEST

Congratulations to the Waggoner Creek Clements A team the 2018 Weathernator Forecasting Contest Champions

Friday Results:  High 43/Low 35/1.17" of rain/Trace of snow

Saturday Results: HIgh 43/Low 37/Trace of rain/NO snow

Wow!  What a wild three weeks of forecasting it was.  You went through eight of of ten days here at home with either a midnight high, a midnight low, or both.  That was followed by an historic nor'easter that brought hurricane force wind gusts to our final forecasting location during the last few days of the contest.  That led to an amazing come from behind win by the Waggoner Creek A team.  They were in eighth place in the standings going into the last few days of the contest.  They were also the only team in those eight to correctly answer the rain and snow questions both Friday and Saturday. 

Shout outs go out to three teams that were almost always near the top...the Fairfield Meerpohl team, the Walnut Hill Hernandez team and the North Desoto Humelsine team.  Actually a big well done goes out to all teams.  Given the number of midnight highs & lows that we had to deal with during the contest, I would give any team that ended with 11pts per day or less an A grade.  All others deserve a B!  

Students hopefully you learned something from our three week weather adventure.  If you enjoyed the contest, please tell your teachers thank you.  They are the ones who gave their time to enable you to participate this year.
