Winter '09 / '10 - Snow Storm #3 - Call for Forecasts


January's second contest snow storm combines juiced-up southern stream energy and bitter arctic cold from the snowfields of northern Canada.

Precipitation coming from weak low-level warm-advection and jet level divergence...with less than impressive mid-level dynamics as streams phase in confluent zone off the mid-Atlantic coast.

Models have been trending farther south past the few runs such that the bare minimum of stations for a contest-worthy storm are expected to be affected.

Last-minute contest cancellation possible if NWP consensus for the frozen precipitation shield dips below the DC metro area. Cancellation notice will be posted to the Contest web site and web log.
