2013 First Snowfall Contest
Wake Up Wisconsin
Guess the first date that there will be 1 inch of snowfall in Wausau during Fall-Winter of 2013
Official Contest Rules
1. No purchase necessary.
2. To be eligible you must guess the first date there will be an inch of snowfall in Wausau during the Fall-Winter of 2013. The official snow amount will be that which is indicated on the climate record for downtown Wausau – as recorded by the National Weather Service of Green Bay on the daily climate report. If the snowfall occurs over the course of two days then the date that had the first full inch of snow will be considered the winning date. For example, if there was 1.6 inches of snow and 0.50 inches fell before midnight and 1.1 inches fell after midnight, then the date after midnight would be the winning date. In the case that the first snowfall of one inch or greater is evenly divided between two days or neither date alone has one inch or greater (example: 0.70 inches before midnight and 0.70 after midnight), then both dates will be declared winning dates. If the first 1 inch or greater snowfall occurs before October 5th (during the entry period) then the 2nd snowfall of 1 inch or greater will be considered the winning date.
3. Only 1 entry is allowed per person.
4. The entry period will be from September 23rd through the end of the day (midnight) on October 4th.
