Winter '14 / '15 - Storm #1: Call for Forecasts!

DC's Embassy Row - Massachusetts Ave
Northern portions of NEWxSFC/s forecast area in line for an early-season contest-worthy snowfall featuring a weak Miller 'A' nor'easter.

This would be the earliest contest storm in NEWxSFC/s 16 year history beating the old record set in 2002 by one day. 

The 2002 storm dumped 9" at BDL ... 5.8" at PVD ... 4" at ORH ... and lesser amounts from PHL (T) to CAR (T).

'Call for Forecasts' e-mails will be issued this evening.

Forecast element: storm-total snowfall
Deadline for entries:  10:30 PM EST ... TUE ... 25-NOV-14

Verification period begins:  12:01 AM EST WED ... 26-NOV-14
Verification period ends:  11:59 PM EST THU ... 27-MAR-14

Enter your forecast at the NEWxSFC/s home page here.
Follow the top-of-page link from 'Enter Storm Forecast.'

Contest for Storm #1 may be cancelled prior to the deadline if fewer than six stations are likely to observe at least a 4" snowfall.

As always ... there/s no cost ... no fee ... no 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).
