"New England Weather" run by Joel, is running its annual winter forecast contest...

I said that I would post the details of the contest on this site so here they are:

Ok, so the 2006 Winter Forecast Contest is back. The directions are rather simple. You must predict the winter snowfall for the following cities (to the nearest whole number). Tie breaker will be the date of the last snowfall at Logan Airport, in Boston. So, here are the cities:

Boston (BOS)
Providence (PVD)
Hartford (BDL)
Worcester (ORH)
Bridgeport (BDR)
Nantucket (ACK)

Please email Joel your predictions ( or post them in the comments section.Contest closes on December 15, 2006. Joel will make a list of the contestants and their predictions after the contest closes.

Meanwhile, I hope to post soon, as there is some weather stuff to talk about, including some potential snow tomorrow night into Friday morning. Before you get too excited, let me tell you that its just a chance of snow showers and squalls with the passage of a front. Tomorrow will be milder with highs in the upper 40's to around 50. Friday after morning flurries may be hardpressed to get out of the 20's inland and above freezing in Boston and along the coast. Cold snap won't last long, moderating temperatures into the weekend. Highs back in the 50's by Sunday.

Make your predictions...

Snow squalls later this evening look interesting, to say the least. Could see a quick 1-2" of snow in some places...with very heavy snow and gusty winds...we would have some high ratios...
