Winter '19 / '20 - Snow Storm #1: Outlook

Today/s prog courtesy AWS shows the surface LOW in prime position over the Benchmark (40°W / 70°W).

A cold overland HIGH NW of the LOW is the missing element.  Pinpointing the liquid / freezing / frozen transition zone will be challenging.

NWP model guidance suggests more than nuisance snows for at least six forecast stations qualify the season's inaugral storm as contest-worthy.

Likely 'Call for Forecasts': FRI ... 29-NOV-19
Deadline for entries would be SAT ... 30-NOV-19 @ 10 PM EST.
