Winter '11 / '12 - Snow Storm #1 - Call for Forecasts

Today/s 12z progs indicating a lot of forecast stations in the mid-Atlantic and southern New England are in line to get snowed upon but there may not be all that much of it.

A weak frontal wave rising out of the OH-TN river valley early Saturday morning will throw Atlantic moisture atop an arctic air mass parked over SE Canada.

Looks to be a borderline nuisance event but at this point in a rather disappointing season...we/ll take it.

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

Forecast element: storm-total snowfall

Deadline for entries: 10:30 PM EST FRI...20-JAN-12

Verification period begins: 12:01 AM SAT...21-JAN-12
Verification period ends: 11:59 PM SAT...21-JAN-12
