Winter '15 / '16 - Snowfall Forecast Contests
17th Annual 'Regular Season'
No FINAL standings
Too few storms (2)

The two-thirds rule; forecasters are eligible for ranking in the final standings if they entered at least two-thirds of all storm contests. With only two contest-worthy storms this season ... those forecasters with one entry only would have been ineligible.

In the interest of fairness;
Three storms seems like the bare minimum

Winter '10 / '11 - Snow Storm #4 - Preliminary Verification

Preliminary storm-total snowfalls for Friday from CDUS41...CXUS51...and of 8 AM Saturday.

No snowfall report was carried in the NWS PNSBOX bulletin for HYA. Verifying storm-total snowfall of 0.5" was estimated from HYA/s Pxxxx METAR data.

A field formatting error in the data table shows ACY and IAD with 0.1".  Actual STP was a 'trace' (0.05") at both locations.
Three new daily records.
BDR BGR - 17.3" (4.3"; 1946)
BOS - 7.3" (6.4"; 2001)
EWR - 4.5" (4.2"; 2001)

Please report errors and drop a link to the correct data in Comments.
Final results and storm summary on Sunday.

Thx for the eagle-eye.
Was moving fast this AM with Contest updates.

No postings last night b/c of conflict with homebrewing schedule.

CON should be 4.8" instead of 4.6".
