Winter '14 / '15 - Interim Standings: 1

After three snow storms ... it/s Don Sutherland ... TQ ... and Donald Rosenfeld.

Under the ‘two-thirds’ rule … forecasters who have entered at least two forecasts are included in these interim standings.

All verified forecasts from all forecasters for all Winter '14 / '15 contest storms here.

---
SUMSQ errors for each contest snow storm are normalized with a 'Z-score' ... then averaged to compute the standings.

If a forecaster has issued forecasts for more than two-thirds of all snow storm contests ... then Z-scores from their 'best two-thirds' forecasts are used to calculate the Interim and Final standings.  Same idea as dropping the lowest quiz score before computing the final grade.
