Contest # 2 - Call for Forecasts

The flat wave under-cutting the long wave ridge along 80W is expected to gin-up fair to good snowfalls across the northern M-A and SNE this weekend. Since beggars can/t be choosers this winter…this storm/s on deck for Contest #2.

Entry Deadline: Saturday, 24 February 2007 @ 10:30 PM EST.

Verification begins 12:01 AM EST Sunday, 25 February 2007 and ends 11:59 PM EST Tuesday, 27 February 2007.

If you provide a valid e-mail address, a copy of your forecast will be sent to you immediately after your entry is submitted. Please ensure your browser is enabled to accept first-party cookies.

Contest updates are posted on the Contest/s web log.

The NE.Wx Snowfall Forecast Contest (NEWxSFC) is a multi-month event that continues into late March or early April. In general, contests are held whenever a decent, synoptic-scale storm rears its head and threatens at least a half-dozen forecast stations with more than nuisance snowfall amounts. Forecasters are called to post their 'storm total' snowfall predictions, on deadline, for 27 NWS / FAA observing stations scattered about New England and the Mid-Atlantic regions.

You can find the Contest Rules and additional information about Error Scoring, current monthly snowfall climatology from NCDC, daily CPC teleconnection indices, daily NESDIS N-Hemi snow cover, and NWS Daily Climate Bulletins (CDUS41) by simply pointing your browser @ NEWxSFC
