Can You Stump the Weather Chump

Both snow contest stats have been updated as of this morning ;)

Stephen aka PSUSyr5 has been posting some fun forecasts on the Golden Snow Globe website It's all in fun and lets see if we can get some interaction. Here is what Stephen posted to get you all involved. You can pick an area in New York State or any other region in the United States. The idea IMO is to make it a hard one so we can stump the weather chump ;)

From PSUSyr5 - You’ve seen the Golden Snow Cast forecasts, but none of them have been for an area where you live. Or, perhaps there is a region out there that you’d like to see a forecast for, and the Golden SnowCast didn’t cover it. After all, there is only one World prediction in each Golden SnowCast forecast, so the chances of coverage for a specific area are quite small for a given time period. Or, maybe the Golden SnowCast did cover your area previously, but now you want more.

Say hello to Stump the Weather Chump. This is your chance to be a part of the forecasts. Just make a reply to this, or any Golden Snow Cast or Stump the Weather Chump post stating at least the region for which you would like a forecast. You can also mention what you would like in the forecast as well (temperature, precipitation, etc). I would like to keep the forecasts to 2-3 days ahead. Some forecasts may be general statements (at least half of the cities in the area will have temperatures 5 below average, all cities will have at least an inch of snow, etc) or involve a range (high temperatures 40-45, snow 1-3 inches, etc). That will mostly depend on what’s out there and the details given in the forecast request. So, basically, this will be like the Golden Snowcast forecast, except you control the forecast elements.

As with the Golden Snowcast, I’ll be keeping track of my progress (or lack there of) with this.

Have a Great Sunday All!!!

I'll give a shot at stumping the chump. How about what will the date be when at least 3 of the 5 golden snowball cities have at least another 4 inches of snow added to their totals?

In other words Buffalo may get 4 inches but not the other cities. When will at least 3 of the cities increase their totals from today by 4 inches or more?

That's a little bit out of my league. It is a "shot in the dark" type of thing, similar to the inch of snow contest for Syracuse earlier in the season. Those are a lot of fun to do, but not quite what I had in mind for this. I'll take it anyway, with a little bit of modification.

A quick look indicates that it will be relatively quiet snow-wise for most of the GSB cities for the week. After that, forecasts generally fall apart, so this is where the fun (and the "shot in the dark") begins. I'm targeting February 1st as the day in question.

This is where the modification comes in to play. Since it is well beyond the 2-3 day range that is ideal for me (forecasts for a few days in advance are what I gave as a part of Penn State's Campus Weather Service and the 2-3 day range is currently used with the Golden SnowCast), I am going to give myself a 3 day window on either side.

The date when at least 3 GSB cities increase their snow totals by 4 inches or more from today (using the 1/19 afternoon updates as the starting point) will be between January 29th and February 4th.

Fair enough?
