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
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!
