Winter '12 / '13 - Storm # 1: The Forecasts

Consensus for this season/s inaugural event has bonus snows for New England/s northern stations and crumbs for most inland locations along the mid-Atlantic.  The eight to 10 stations in play makes this a decent synoptic-scale winter storm despite rain for major cities along the I-95 corridor.

13 forecasters
11 veterans and 2 Rookies

Forecasts are ranked by their storm-total precipitation (STP).
BLUE ==> 25th percentile.
RED ==> 75th percentile.
STP cells without color are between the 25th and 75th percentile.

Everyone/s station-by-station forecast at the Contest/s web site.

Roger Smith is promoted to Senior forecaster this year.
Brad Yehl is now a Journeyman forecaster.
Dryslot is an Intern.

Forecaster status - Years Experience
Rookie - 0
Intern - 1
Journeyman - 2
Senior - 3
Chief - last year/s 'Regular' season contest winner.


PNA at long last comes out of its long coma and a good looking AO although a fair case can be made the state of these indices played a relatively minor role.
