In what will in all likelihood be this winter/s last contest-worthy hurrah...a pokey...yet potent...nor'easter is poised to put down plenty-o-snow over northern forecast stations.

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

Ratty-looking early spring storm over northern New England...as depicted by today/s 12z GooFuS...appears to have enough snow on the northwest edge of the precipitation shield to be a contest-worthy event.

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