Less than perfect storm track may end up short-changing some SNE coastal stations but more than enough snowfall expected over the interior for a contest-worthy snow storm.

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