This weekend's PD III poser of a storm didn't show its face in time to issue a 'Call for Forecasts' Thursday evening.
Today's progs and HPC guidance suggest a contest-worthy period of snow over northern stations on Sunday.
Only snow that accumulates after midnight Sunday will be used to verify the forecasts.
The forecast contest for Storm #4 may be canceled prior to deadline if NWP indicates a fizzling event.
Forecast element: storm-total snowfall
Deadline for entries: 10:30 PM EST SAT...16-FEB-13
Verification period begins: 12:01 AM SUN...17-FEB-13
Verification period ends: when the snow stops.

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).
