Q4 has been answered, and should be closely followed by Q1, 9, 10 and 11 grin
Q5 can't be answered until later in the season as scores depend on where the next cyclones form.

Wow, I'm not totally failing this time crazy

Congrats to croccrew for holding his ground at #1, Simmo for moving up to #2, and EddyG making it into the top 3 grin

Sure is .. Q9 and Q10 have just been answered, with some pretty dramatic changes in the leaderboard.

Congrats to KroneckerDelta and GusO for nailing the crossing to the date!

So the remaining answers for the 2015/16 season are in!

For Q3, we had Marble Bar reach a maximum of 47.4C on the 5th of January.

Raquel was technically to be the first name for the 2015/16 season, however the BoM later deemed that Raquel would fall into the 2014/15 season due to forming on the 1st of July.

Stan followed, answering the Western region for Q5, and also Q6 with a minimum pressure of 975hPa. Stan peaked at Category 2 for landfall, answering Q11.

The SOI average for Spring to Summer months, September 2015 through to Feb 2016, was -15.3

Q13, the highest recorded maximum in Broome, was 41C on Sunday the 10th of April.

This season was one of the least active in reliably recorded history, with only 3 named systems in total, for Q14, and only 1 land-falling system, Stan.

Stan also took the prize for the most intense cyclone of the season.

Mackay recorded a total of 1255.2mm of rainfall for the months Oct-Apr at the Mt Bassett station.

Cairns Airport recorded 13 days of rainfall totals exceeding 25mm.

And finally, Q19 and Q20 .. the highest daily rainfall for the provided locations was Townsville! Having recorded 124.8mm on the 16th of March, followed closely by Darwin at 122.8mm!

And so, we have our winners! Congrats to LD4811 for taking first place, followed by Nerd65, and 3rd place, Seabreeze!

I'd like to thank everyone who entered for giving me a chance to trial out this new method of running the competition. It has always been handled by one of our great members "WWW" who had the time consuming task of collecting entries, data, and calculating the answers. The goal of this online based system is to take a lot of the time consuming elements out of the competition, to allow myself (and potentially others) to run it easily into the future.

Please note that some of the answers have been calculated a little differently to how they have been in the past, which can be seen on the Information page smile

I have a bunch of ideas for it next season, and I'd welcome any input you may have in regards to usability or potential features you'd like to see!

Check out your final result here!

Awesome, thanks for all your work on this smile 5th place will do me, nearly caught up with local numbers guru Seabreeze so got to be happy with that.
Look forward to the same again this year...but with a very different wet season.

Unfortunately doesn't look like I'll be in the tropics for another wet season, but I'll still run the comp and play along grin This season was insanely boring frown

Cheers things. And congrats to those at the bottom of the ladder. Given how messed up the tropics were this year you obviously know more about weather than the rest of us wink

Was definitely an odd season, for sure! Meant for some pretty dramatic rank changes when the final answers came in smile

Thanks for running the comp this season Things!
Congrats LD4811 and also to Nerd65 and Seabreeze.
Must admit I'm pretty happy with 4th considering the underwhelming season and the random nature of success with any of the questions.
Look forward to the season 16/17 comp. I enjoy researching the season's potential at the beginning and then watching it all unfold over the months.
So glad you are planning to stage it again Things.

Great job Things. Well done LD4811.

Tough year, crazy weather and the quietest TC season on record thrown in for good measure.
