Teams from North Desoto Upper Elementary lead forecasting contest

Local News

The second week of the Weathernator Forecasting Contest has ended with two teams from North Desoto Upper Elementary leading the competion.  Last week forty teams from nearly a dozen Arklatex schools created forecasts for Texarkana. Those forecasts answered four questions.  What will be the next day’s high temperature?  What will be the next day’s low temperature? Will it rain? and Will it snow? 

Teams receive points for every degree they miss the high and low temperatures and five points for missing the rain and snow questions.  Those points are added up with an average determinded for each day’s forecast.   Here is the list of the contest’s top 20 teams:
