Winter '09 / '10 - Snow Storm #4 - Call for Forecasts

Phasing streams...negative tilted 5H trof...incredible amounts of Gulf o'Mexico moisture invading the mid-Atlantic...significant comma head / deformation.  HPC seems to think a major winter event is in the offing this it's high time for Contest #4.

Odd 'Miller A/B'- looking cyclone this go'round... altho secondary coastal development isn't in response to northern stream energy but a second....southern stream short-wave flying east after under-cutting the high-amplitude long-wave ridge along west coast.
Deadline: 10:30 PM EST THU...04-FEB-10

Forecast element: storm-total snowfall
Verification begins: 12:01 AM EST FRI...05-FEB-10
Verification ends: 11:59 PM EST SAT...06-FEB-10

As always...there/s no cost...or fee...or annoying requests for personal information to enter. Just a fun exercise to see who can make the best synoptic-scale snowfall forecast.

If you are issuing your first forecast this year...or you entered the 'season-total' forecast need to create an account (user name / password / valid e-mail...if you want a copy of your forecast sent to your Inbox).
