Snow Storm #8: Call for Forecasts

Multi-day event at hand offering early spring snows to mid-Atlantic and coastal New England stations. HPC/s "Heavy Snow / Icing Discussion" indicated poor consensus on the details among the NWP solutions such that this event could go either way.

The forecast contest for Snow Storm #8 may be cancelled if forecasts from the next couple model runs suggest strongly the synoptics are unlikely to produce contest-worthy snows.

Cancellation notices will be posted on the web blog and the Contest/s web site only.

Deadline: 10:30 PM EST SAT...28 FEB 2009

Forecast element: storm-total snowfall
Verification begins: 12:01 AM EST SUN...01 MAR 2009
