Winter '12 / '13 - Storm #3: Call for Forecasts!

Route 128
Danvers...MA
10-FEB-69
The last 'Call for Forecasts' came 41 days ago.  What a crappy winter!

NWP offering up another odd Miller A / B hybrid with explosive development along the SNE coast...near-blizzard conditions...and a track over the famed' benchmark' at 40°N / 70°W.

This go-round it's an actual real-live snowstorm and not some poser LOW with a thin strip of snow on the northwestern edge of the precipitation shield.

The forecast contest for Storm #3 may be canceled prior to deadline if NWP indicates a fizzling event altho that seems unlikely.

As always...there/s no cost...or fee...or advertising...or annoying requests for personal information to enter a forecast. It's just a fun exercise for winter wx enthusiasts to see who can make the best synoptic-scale snowfall forecast.

If you are issuing your first forecast this winter...or you entered the 'season-total' forecast contest...you/ll need to create an account (user name / password / valid e-mail...if you want a copy of your forecast sent to your Inbox).

* Current NWP suggests accumulating snows coming to an end Saturday evening.
Verification period may end 11:59 PM SAT...09-FEB-13 even if light snowfall is occurring over a station or two.  No reason to hold up the preliminary verification report to count 12 extra snowflakes somewhere.
