Post October Space Shot Weather Columns   Posted on: Sun Oct 01, 2006 2:06 pm
Yesterday, the low was 49 and Atari_Guy advanced.

Today, two of our titans are back at it. We have another series between ARothfolk and crux42 in 5 matchups at levels 1-4.

Player __ Hi °F_ Lo °F__ Pr "_ Hu % for Central Park, 10/1
crux42 ... 65.25 57.25 0.6025 95.25
ARothfolk 66.25 56.25 0.5525 75.25

The match will be decided on high temperature with ARothfolk winning if temperature is 66 or higher and crux42 if it is 65 or lower. Again ARothfolk has the red jersey. Last time these two were featured, crux42 triumphed with an extremely low prediction that beat ARothfolk by a little and the weather services by a lot even predicting over a half a day prior to the weather services.

Today as of 9:45 AM Eastern Time, AccuWeather is predicting 65 and Customer Weather 64. ARothfolk is the underdog now.

The weather game is played at http://www.space-shot.com For $3.50, make predictions by 11:59 PM for tomorrow's weather for Central Park, New York City. The grand prize has a retail value of $350,000; a trip to space selling for $250,000 and $100,000 in cash. High temperature decides with low, precipitation and humidity as tie breaks. Open to players 18 and over. The tournament has 17 levels and at each level, you play against someone just like you head to head for 131,000 entries per tournament. One $3.50 fee is all that is paid for the entire tournament.

Thanks Crux, just trying to work my way back up to you, however, I seemed to be capped at level 5 right now.

Post Weather Column box scores 10/3 - 10/4   Posted on: Wed Oct 04, 2006 5:56 pm
On the 2nd, the high temperature was 68 giving ARothfolk the victory.

Player __ Hi °F_ Lo °F__ Pr "_ Hu % for Central Park, 10/3
crux42 ... 78.25 58.75 0.3225 95.75
ARothfolk 78.25 58.75 0.0025 52.75

On the third, we had two of our tournament leaders meet again. We had a rare match decided on precipitation when no precipitation was measured. Is crux42 getting sloppy with so many wins decided on temperature?

Today, we feature crux42 and Kim. Last time we featured these two, Kim was the winner. Kim has not played as often as crux42 and is not at as high of a level and is a relative newcomer.

Player _Hi °F_ Lo °F _ Pr "_ Hu % for Central Park, 10/4
crux42 77.25 63.25 0.2825 85.75
Kim .... 78.25 63.75 0.3725 62.25

Today as of 1:45 PM Eastern Time, AccuWeather is predicting 81 and Customer Weather 78. Kim has two weather service predictions closer than the leader's prediction. It's only 76 though so the afternoon's not over yet.

Post Kim and crux42 again   Posted on: Thu Oct 05, 2006 4:57 pm
Again, we feature crux42 and Kim. Yesterday, Kim predicted better when the high temperature came in at 78. crux42 is not invincible.

Player _Hi °F_ Lo °F _ Pr "_ Hu % for Central Park, 10/5
crux42 70.25 53.25 0.5575 85.25
Kim .... 63.25 52.25 0.0575 62.75

crux42 will have the better prediction at 67 or higher high temperature. Kim will have the better prediction at 66 or lower.

Today as of 1:00 PM Eastern Time, AccuWeather is predicting 65 and Customer Weather 67. Kim has one weather service predictions closer than the leader's prediction. Both players are separated by 7 degrees so another player might have been able to beat crux42 by two or more degrees even if Kim does not.

Post Interesting Matchups This Week   Posted on: Sun Oct 15, 2006 4:46 am
On 10/5, Kim predicted better when the high temperature came in at 66. Our leader, crux42 pipped again and off by more than 4 degrees.


Player __Hi °F_| Lo °F _| Pr "___| Hu % for Central Park, 10/10
That Guy 68.75 | 58.25 | 0.0025 | 59.25
Actual __76___|_57__ |_0_____| 63__
crux42 .. 69.25 | 57.25 | 0.0825 | 85.75

crux42 beat That Guy, but was still almost 7 degrees off.

On the 12th, our first runner up wxbrief who lost to crux42 at level 8 is back again. crux42 again won.

Player _Hi °F_| Lo °F _| Pr "___| Hu % for Central Park, 10/12
crux42 69.25 | 55.25 | 0.3625 | 95.75
Actual _68__ |_50__ |_0.31__| 63___
wxbrief 69.25 | 58.25 | 0.4925 | 75.25

crux42 wins again, but is again off by more than 5 degrees, this time on low.

Player ___ Hi °F_| Lo °F _| Pr "___| Hu % for Central Park, 10/15
crux42 ..... 56.75 | 41.75 | 0.0825 | 65.25
johnboy77 57.25 | 42.75 | 0.0075 | 39.75
AccuWeather 58_ | 45__ | 0____ | N/A
Custom Weather 58|44_ | 0____ | 42


johnboy77 is predicting hotter than crux42 as is AccuWeather and Custom Weather. If the high is 57, johnboy77, AccuWeather and Custom Weather are all predicting higher than crux42 for the low temperature also.

Post crux42 loses and ...   Posted on: Mon Oct 16, 2006 11:09 pm
Player ___ Hi °F_| Lo °F _| Pr "___| Hu % for Central Park, 10/15
crux42 ..... 56.75 | 41.75 | 0.0825 | 65.25
Result ..... 58.00 | 42.00 | 0.0000 | 49.00
johnboy77 57.25 | 42.75 | 0.0075 | 39.75
AccuWeather 58_ | 45__ | 0____ | N/A
Custom Weather 58|44_ | 0____ | 42


johnboy77 predicted closer than crux42 and advanced. While AccuWeather and Custom Weather were closer on the high than our players, crux42 and johnboy77 were closer on the low.

Today, wxbrief and crux42 mixed it up in two matchups at levels 5 and 3. Just $1500 in plays today.

Player _ Hi °F_| Lo °F _| Pr "___| Hu % for Central Park, 10/16
crux42 . 62.25 | 43.25 | 0.0475 | 85.75
AccuWeather 60
wxbrief 62.75 | 44.25 | 0.0025 | 61.25


AccuWeather said that the high in the last 6 hours as of 7 pm Eastern Time was 60 which gives crux42 the win. Note that again crux42 was off by a couple of degrees. crux42 will likely have the win confirmed tomorrow at 3:00 AM. crux42 is king of the mountain here. crux42 lives on the opposite side of the country from New York and doesn't even major in meteorology. crux42's thousands of dollars in plays are ready to defend the title. Can you take a shot at crux42?

Post Crux vs. ARothfolk   Posted on: Tue Oct 24, 2006 3:56 pm
Crux is back and so is ARothfolk. Both played last week, but on different days--today they matched up. Perhaps players will try to coordinate using the new challenge topic in the user forum here.

On 10/16, the low was 62 which did give Crux the better prediction than wxbrief.

In today's featured match:

Player __ Hi °F_ Lo °F _Pr "_Hu % for Central Park, 10/24
Crux ...... 51.25 41.25 .0125 80.25
ARothfolk 51.75 40.75 .0025 50.75


Today as of noon Eastern Time, AccuWeather is predicting 52 and Customer Weather 52. This match will be decided on high temperature with 52 and higher going to ARothfolk and 51 and lower going to Crux.

The weather game is played at http://www.space-shot.com For $3.50, make predictions by 11:59 PM for tomorrow's weather for Central Park, New York City. The grand prize has a retail value of $350,000; a trip to space selling for $250,000 and $100,000 in cash. High temperature decides with low, precipitation and humidity as tie breaks.

Blast! As of 2:30pm Eastern Time NOAA is reporting a high of exactly 52deg... Unless they revise I think I'm shot.

Nice work, ARoth.

Post As October Winds Down   Posted on: Mon Oct 30, 2006 3:48 pm
As the players posted, ARothfolk did indeed win last week's featured match. This week, ARothfolk is featured against tommy who is a race car driver is the new challenger. ARothfolk the petro geologist is the veteran. tommy, if the number is blue, that means it is below 0°F. ARothfolk appears to have the advantage today. tommy learns fast so watch out next time.


Player ________ Hi °F_ Lo °F__ Pr "_ Hu % for Central Park, 10/30
tommy ............... 54.75 -42.25 0.4225 40.25
ARothfolk ........... 61.25 41.75 0.0025 39.25
AccuWeather ..... 61.00 49.00
Custom Weather 61.00 40.00

The Weather services were polled at 10:45 Eastern time, which gives them half a day more to think than our players. Note that they are disagreeing only the low by 9 degrees.

Player __ Hi °F_ Lo °F _Pr "_Hu % for Central Park, 10/31
ARothfolk 70.75 49.25 0.0075 53.75
Crux ...... 70.75 48.75 0.0275 90.75
AccuWeather 70.00 56 (but the low in the past six hours they report is already 52--hmmm. I guess daily low means something different to them* )
Custom Weather 70 52 0.00

Looks like ARothfolk has pipped Crux by a few degrees.
