Winter '12 / '13 is having an unusually grand finale. Total snowfall over the forecast area was +4% as of the end of FEB. MAR bonus snows are adding to winter's goodness!

The 'Season-total' forecast contest ends 31-MAR-13.

The 'Regular' season forecast contest ends when it b/comes more-or-less obvious no'mo 'contest-worthy' snows will be a'fallin.'
