Mid-Atlantic winter 2021-22 snowfall contest


Recommended Posts

It's time for the 7th 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, 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 chose will be compared with the difference at the airport your opponent(s) chose. 

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

Please use the following format when posting your forecast, in this order:

Tiebreaker (SBY or LYH):

The deadline for entries is Wednesday, December 1, at 11:59pm. You are welcome to edit your forecast 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.

Please do NOT post troll forecasts this year. Yes, they're hilarious, but they just confuse me when typing entries in the spreadsheet, and often people have forgotten to update their trollcasts with a real one.

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

BWI: 23.4

DCA: 17.1

IAD: 29.3

RIC: 13.2

SBY: 16.4


I think there would be a pretty hard gradient this year both to the north and to the west of DC this year but also a costal that just misses DC to the East giving the Eastern shore a good storm. I also think there might be to potential for a decent storm if we luck out and our area is due so might as well wishcast too. Then for RIC there will probably be a suppressed storm or two.
