Contest # 4?


(Updated)

Not impressed by tonight/s 00z f-soundings from the Eta / NAM. This run doles out saturated columns to ACY and BWI for all of ~3 hours. Columns at the other stations under the clipper look too dry.

The combination of a short duration event and limited moisture doesn/t usually make for a good forecasting event.

Update
Turned out to be not much of an event afterall...especially given the advanced billing from private...public...amd hobby forecasters.

Station / SN / SN:H2O
MDT 2.0 - 12
ACY 1.8 - 15
IAD 1.4 - 18
PHL 1.4 - 16
ABE 1.2 - 11
EWR 1.0 - 10
DCA 1.0 - 9
JFK 0.8 - 16
BWI 0.8 - 10
BDR 0.7 - 14
ISP 0.5 - 10
BGM 0.2
BDL T

Some of the snowfall totals seem low considering the SN:H2O. 10:1
ratios from clipper-type snows are highly suspect.
