Complicated synoptic situation in store regarding the verification period for Storm #6.
NWP progs snow to begin accumulating at some M-A forecast stations by 00z/03-MAR-14 which is why the verification period will begin 12:01 AM SUN...02-MAR-14.
Twelve forecast stations along and north of a BGM - BDR - PVD line are excluded for Storm #6 because Sunday/s snowfall amounts at many these northern stations will 1) likely be in the nuisance category (< 4"), 2) already on the ground before the deadline, and 3) not involved to any great extent for the main event on Monday.
Forecast element: storm-total snowfall
Deadline for entries: 7 PM EST...SUN...02-MAR-14
Verification begins: 12:01 AM EST SUN...02-MAR-14
Verification ends: 11:59 PM EST MON...03-MAR-14
