Winter '17 / '18 - Snow Storm #8: Call for Forecasts!

19-MAR-56
Carmine St ... NYC
Not the 1st time the progs indicated an out to sea solution in the medium range ... then hang a hard left and roar up the coast as its VT approaches.

Should Snow Storm #8 come to pass ... MAR will have at least three contest-worthy snow storms for only the third time in NEWxSFC/s history.

Other years with three MAR snow storms happened in 2001 and 2014 (return period 9.5 years; probability during any given winter:  11%). 

The forecast contest for Snow Storm #8 may be cancelled prior to the deadline if fewer than six stations are likely to observe at least a 4" snowfall.

Deadline for entries:  10:30 PM EDT ... TUE ... 20-MAR-18
Verification period begins:  12:01 AM EDT ... WED ... 21-MAR-18
Verification period ends:  11:59 PM EDT ... THU ... 22-MAR-18

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.  See how well your forecast stacks up against NWS Eastern Region Weather Forecast Offices.

 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).


NEWxSFC/s email client is permanently off-line.
Forecasters may no longer have a copy of their forecast emailed to them.
Some are getting thorugh.  Some are not.
The Contest/s email address newx (at) newx-forecasts (dot) com remains unreachable.
Apologies for the degraded service which is beyond my control.
