Winter '19 / '20 - Snow Storm #1: Call for Forecasts!

Haverhill ... MA

Robust remnants of the last weekend/s powerhouse PAC NW storm is muscling its way east across the Central Plains ... Upper Midwest ... and taking aim on the northern M-A and SNE.

Progs pointing to an initial period of over-running snows followed by Miller 'B' re-development off the Jersey Shore ... the parent LOW/s subsequent capture ... and a long-duration event.

Forecast element: each station/s storm-total snowfall

Deadline for entries: 10:00 PM EST ... SAT ... 30-NOV-19

Forecast verification period
Begins: 12:01 AM EST ... SUN ... 01-DEC-19
Ends: 11:59 PM EST when the flakes stop flyin'.

Enter your forecast at the NEWxSFC/s home page HERE.
Follow the top-of-page link from 'Enter Storm Forecast' or in the 'Call for Forecasts!' section.

See how well your forecast stacks up against other winter wx enthusiasts and NWS Eastern Region Weather Forecast Offices (turns out the ER WFOs are fairly easy to beat).

The forecasting contest for Snow Storm #1 may be cancelled prior to the deadline if at least six-to-eight stations are unlikely to observe at least a 4" storm-total snowfall.
