Winter '15 / '16 - Snow Storm #1: Call for Forecasts

Powerhouse winter storm setting its sights on the M-A and extreme SNE.  Progs planting a closed-upper LOW along the SE coast suggest a long-duration event as the SFC LOW/s progress slows to a crawl.

No question whether this is a contest-worthy storm.  Couldn't ask for a better mid-latitude cyclone to kick-off the season other than its tardy arrival a week past winter's mid-point.

Forecast element: storm-total snowfall
Deadline for entries:  10:30 PM EST THU ... 21-JAN-16
Verification begins:  12:01 AM EST FRI ... 22-JAN-16
Verification ends:  when the snow stops falling
