Mid-Atlantic winter 2018-19 snowfall contest

Recommended Posts

It's time for the 4th annual Mid-Atlantic snowfall contest! Everyone is encouraged to play- including lurkers, new members and people outside the region!
 
You are forecasting the total snowfall for the entire season (NOT just Dec/Jan/Feb) for the four major airports: BWI, DCA, IAD and RIC. 

For the tiebreaker, you will choose one of the following two airports: Salisbury (SBY) or Lynchburg (LYH). Please choose only one- in the event of the tiebreaker, the difference at the airport you choose will be compared with the difference at the airport your opponent(s) choose. 

The winner will be the person who has the lowest combined absolute value departure for all four airports (a link here: https://www.americanwx.com/bb/topic/50428-mid-atlantic-winter-2017-18-snowfall-contest/?do=findComment&comment=4656575 explains this in more detail, for anyone who needs clarification).
 

Please use the following format when posting your forecast:
BWI:
DCA:
IAD:
RIC:

Tiebreaker (SBY or LYH):

The deadline for entries is Friday, Nov. 30 at 11:59pm. Please have your forecasts in by then! You are welcome to edit your forecasts as many times as you want until the deadline. If there's any accumulating snow before the deadline, please include that in your forecast as well.

The winner gets an E-trophy and an induction into the Hall of Fame with the previous winners:

2015-16: @Shadowzone

2016-17: @Stormpc

2017-18: @olafminesaw

Good luck everyone!
