Winter '12 / '13 - Storm #4: Call for Forecasts!

TAKE 2!

NYC
13-DEC-69

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.

Enter your forecast at the Contest's home page here.
Follow the link from 'Enter Storm Forecast.'

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).

Best guess has 8 stations in play...esp. given the cold air ==> high SN:H2O.
