Winter '13 / '14 - Storm #3: Call for Forecasts

DC Knickerbocker Storm
UPDATE: corrected dates for entry deadline and start of verification period.

Big changes in the overnight progs present opportunity for another contest and a short deadline for entries.

Even though QPF is somewhat skimpy, Arctic air will provide ideal environment for high-fluff factor and contest-worthy snows.

Forecast element: storm-total snowfall
Deadline for entries:  10:30 PM EST MON...20-JAN-14
Verification begins:  12:01 AM EST TUE...21-JAN-14
Verification ends:  when the snow stops falling
