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) at the contest/s web site.
