Winter '10 / '11 - Snow Storm #1 - Call for Forecasts

NYC
27-DEC-47
Plenty-of-uncertainty about the eventual fate of the this weekend/s long anticipated east coast LOW and its attendant rapid cyclogenesis.  Today's 12z NAM has the yin while the 12z GooFuS is really yanging it up.

GooFuS hands the reins over to a strong 100kt digging short-wave in the northern stream SAT afternoon...a significant change from early projections where the main energy was contained in the southern stream.  Coupled-jet streak configuration noted around mid-day SUN.  Could be a notable event should the atmopsphere decide to read from this script.

Contest may be canceled prior to the deadline if NWP indicates a fizzling event.
