Grats, robotman. :D That's awesome.

No METAR, either? :\ How many questions?

Man. Then I imagine the point margin between places was really small.

Who's doing Severe Storms next year? :)

Good job everyone!
the test was SOOOOOOO easy!
all there was was secondary rainbow formation, path and properties of chinook, santa ana, noreaster, and blue norther, amount of daylight at 0, 45, and 90 degrees at
the winter equinox in the northern hemisphere, the 3-cell model in the northern hemisphere, coloris deflection, where the itcz is at the winter equinox (a little bit south of the equator actually), a isotherm map to connect at 5 degree intervals, how a thunderstorm is formed, match different fronts with discriptions, have conduction, radiation, and convection, the energy budget (how much energy is reflected if only 20% of energy reaches ground), reading a pie graph (air composition), and maybe some other things. absolutely no mention of graphs or clouds!

I got third place!!! :D
thought i will get 20th place since I totally messed up on the ferell cell

OMG! OMG! OMG! I messed up on the ferell cell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :x :x :x

Agreed, WAY too easy. I managed to win, however the one question that my partner and I got stuck on was the one about why maximum temperature doesn't occur when there is maximum solar radiation. Anyone know the answer to that one?

Great job everyone!

Don't quote me on this, but I think it's because the ground takes a while to absorb the heat and then re-radiate it into the atmosphere, which makes things even warmer.
