Contest # 1 - The Forecasts

(updated below)


Click to Enlarge

Sixteen Fifteen forecasters...one rookie...and one late entry pending approval

Storm Total Precipitation (STP) forecasts range from a low of 55.7" (smadsen8486) to a high of 108" (Mitchel Volk).

Average STP is 78.9"

Clearly a northern New England event...where the consensus heavy snow axis (+6") extends from BTV - CAR - BGR - PWM - CON - BTV.

All individual forecasts have been posted to the NEWxSFC web site. Follow the link to 'Contest # 1 - The Forecasts'. The forecasts are ranked from minimum to maximum STP for all stations.

UPDATE: The 16th entry was disqualified b/c the forecaster took into account model data not available to other forecasters who entered on deadline.

The forecasts posted on the web site will be updated during verification.
