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 weekend...so 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.
