Winter '14 / '15 - Storm #4: Call for Forecasts!

Rte. 128 in Danvers...MA
Similar set-up for the next event starting this week-end as for Storm #3.

Latest progs continue to suggest a long-duration event with waves migrating along an E/W frontal boundary where Gulf of Mexico moisture over-runs arctic air mass followed by Delmarva cyclogenesis.

Earlier than usual forecast call for Storm #4 a result of schedule conflicts Friday evening.

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

Forecast element: storm-total snowfall
Deadline for entries:  10:30 PM EST ... SAT ... 07-FEB-15

Verification begins:  12:01 AM EST ... SUN ... 08-FEB-15
Verification ends:  when the snow stops falling
