Winter '10 / '11 - Snow Storm #5 - Call for Forecasts

East Side...NYC
24-JAN-1908
Large-scale disagreement between today/s 12z NAM and GooFuS runs. HPC discounted the NAM solution as a 'slow outlier' in its afternoon discussion.

GooFuS keeps the LOW closer to the coast putting enough stations in play for a contest-worthy event.

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