Precip has started in the southern plains thus this thread now started.

Well might as well get this one going since it was going to happen sooner or later. GFS has been showing a
system of some kind moving through during this time for several runs. Just outside of GGEM/Euro range
but might be able to tell something better from them starting with tonight's 0z.
12z GFS has an apps runner although a little more cold air would be nice.

You pick a city for each day (12z - 12z), in which you will have a 25 mile radius around that city to gain reports. Picks need to be submitted by 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time, regardless of whether or not Daylight Savings Time is in effect. If severe weather is occuring between the time when SPC Day One Reports start (12z) and 11:00 a.m., you can NOT pick a city within a few miles of those severe storms.
You are not required to submit a guess for every day, although obviously your chances of winning will increase with each day you submit a guess for. To that end, if you are going to be away from the forum for an extended period of time (vacation, etc.), you may submit guesses in advance for all of the days you will be away from the forum for.
Scoring is as follows:
1 point for every normal hail/wind report within 25 miles of your city.
2 points for every significant hail/wind report (2"+ hail & 75+ mph wind) within 25 miles of your city.
5 points for every tornado report within 25 miles of your city.
Tornado - 5
Significant Hail/Wind - 2
Normal Hail/Wind - 1
The plan is for there to once again be two rounds, with the first lasting from January 1 - June 30, and the second lasting from July 1 - December 31.
Good Luck to everyone!

Well i'm going to take a shot at this one. 0z GFS shows a northern and southern energies that stay separate
and the northern does produce some snow across the GL's.

0z Euro from what I can tell from 24 hour maps looks more like the GFS as far as keeping them separate
but not sure how snow looks for the GL's.
Now the 0z GGEM does phase the two just in time to drop a 3-6" swath of snow across a good chunk of
OH/south IN/parts of KY.
