Snow Storm #6: Call for Forecasts

Poor consensus today between NAM and GooFuS concerning Sunday's snow storm over the forecast area.

GooFuS solutions depict more mid-level energy digging deeper into the eastern trof...which excites cyclogenesis along the southeast coast and a second snow storm on Monday.

NAM is more progressive as it shunts the bulk of its impulse into New England.

Given the present uncertainty...the verification period for this event will be be restricted to 12:01 AM EST to 11:59 PM EST on Sunday. This leaves the door open for a 'Call for Forecasts' on Saturday for Snow Storm #7.

Make the best forecast and you/ll win one month of FREE access to StormVista GOLD. Details here.

Deadline: 10:30 PM EST Saturday...17 January 2009

Forecast element: storm-total snowfall
Verification period begins: 12:01 AM EST Sunday...18 January 2009
