You pick a city for each day (12z - 12z), in which you will have a 25 mile radius around that city to gain reports. Picks need to be submitted by 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time, regardless of whether or not Daylight Savings Time is in effect. This is a slight change from last season, in which we used military time. Finally, if severe weather is occuring between the time when SPC Day One Reports start (12z) and 11:00 a.m., you can NOT pick a city within a few miles of those severe storms.

You are not required to submit a guess for every day, although obviously your chances of winning will increase with each day you submit a guess for. To that end, if you are going to be away from the forum for an extended period of time (vacation, etc.), you may submit guesses in advance for all of the days you will be away from the forum for.

Scoring is as follows:

1 point for every normal hail/wind report within 25 miles of your city.
2 points for every significant hail/wind report (2"+ hail & 75+ mph wind) within 25 miles of your city.
5 points for every tornado report within 25 miles of your city.

Tornado - 5
Significant Hail/Wind - 2
Normal Hail/Wind - 1

The plan is for there to once again be two rounds, with the first lasting from January 1 - June 30, and the second lasting from July 1 - December 31.

The plan is also to get more people involved in the game, which I will attempt to accomplish through [a] advertising the game in my signature, [b] posting about the game in severe weather threads, and [c] actually updating the standings on time for this round. To that end, the goal is to update the standings two days after the day that is predicted; so, the January 1st picks will be scored on January 3rd, the January 2nd picks will be scored on January 4th, and so on.

This thread will be opened at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time on December 31st, which will mark the last time that cities can be chosen for the 2nd round of the 2010 Severe Weather Prediction game, for which the thread can be found here. I will continue to keep track of the standings in that thread, and will copy the final standings of that round to this thread when they are calculated. I will post the top 5 finishers in that game in the first post of this thread, when the final standings are calculated.

Good luck to everyone who chooses to participate this year.

Congrats to the Top 5 Finishers in Season Three, Round Two:
1. Hockeymidget8 - 282pts
2. SEMIweather - 257pts
3. Gumby151515 - 241pts
4. WeatherDudeNYC - 223pts
5. wxdude1964 - 214pts
