Winter '20 / '21 - Snow Storm #4: Call for Forecasts! - Take 2

Boston Public Garden

Too few stations stayed in play after Storm #4/s first Call for Forecasts on SUN.

This storm shows much more promise to have more than enough forecast stations in play to be contest-worthy.

One thing remains unchanged from - the parade of winter storms affecting the M-A and the NE with messy p-types.

Enter your forecast at the NEWxSFC/s home page at

Follow the top-of-page link from 'Enter Snow Storm Forecast'

Forecast element: each station/s storm-total snowfall

Deadline for entries: 10 PM EST ... WED ... 17-FEB-21
Verification begins: 12:01 AM EST ... THU ... 18-FEB-21
Verification ends: 11:59 PM EST the day when snow stops accumulating

You also get the chance to see how well your forecast stacks up against NWS Eastern Region Weather Forecast Offices. Turns out they/ve been fairly easy to beat!

The forecasting contest for Snow Storm #4 may be cancelled prior to the deadline if at least 6-to-8 stations are unlikely to observe at least a 4" storm-total snowfall.

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).

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.
