    OK here's an UPDATE guys because Vermillion has been such a slacker to not provide one :p

    I checked everyone's predictions against data on the BOM website. If I've made an error with anyone's town feel free to correct it.

    The temperatures below are the Max recorded for the said site. In brackets is how far the guesser was off the mark

    The Leader Board so far

    1. BenLomond Iceman Launceston 33.7 ( +0.3 )
    = Trail Blazer Sydney 38.4 ( -0.3 )
    2. Smokkinharry Thredbo 24.2 ( -0.4 )
    3. Quro Darwin 36.5 ( +0.8 )
    4. Blue Neon Melbourne 40.8 ( -0.9 )
    5. Wodonga Josh Albury 42.5 ( +1.0 )

    - Go to one of the individual State forecasts ( top of the BOM home page )
    - Click on "Latest weather observations for.."
    - Click on "Daily weather observations for.."

    and that'll give you a list of all the stations in that state, alphabetically listed. 13 months of data for every site, or three years of daily data if you fiddle around with the link in the address bar [​IMG]

    Sydney hit 38.7C (my exact prediction) at 12:26pm and now the seabreeze has come in and knocked it down to 32C. This is the hottest that Sydney has been at any time this summer.

    It's still 40C at my place though (northern suburbs).

    The temperatures below are the Max recorded for the said site. In brackets is how far the guesser was off the mark.

    The Leader Board so far

    1. Trail Blazer Sydney 38.7 ( 0.0 )
    2. BenLomond Iceman Launceston 33.7 ( +0.3 )
    3. Smokkinharry Thredbo 24.2 ( -0.4 )
    4. Quro Darwin 36.5 ( +0.8 )
    5. Blue Neon Melbourne 40.8 ( -0.9 )
    6. Wodonga Josh Albury 42.5 ( +1.0 )

    Indeed. 40.5 in Hobart/ 41.3 in Campania would be perfect [​IMG]

    I was going to put a full leauge table up before but I figured I'd be close to the bottom, so I thought nah - I'd skip that idea.

    Anyway, this is a fun competition, I think congrats should go to Trail Blazer so far for his flukey spot-on prediction :thumbs:

    Carnarvon hottest March day anywhere in Australia on record two days ago... 47.8 degrees.... and it's not summer anymore. That was probably the hottest day anywhere since summer began. I think Perth's hottest day yesterday was the hottest as well this year.

    Well I know that Sydney didn't get near 38.7C again since I last posted.
