Ways you can earn AtmoCup points for your school RIGHT NOW

Here are the complete rules and details of our 2017 AtmoCup competition listing the many ways in which you can earn points. We’ll be sure to post this link in each weekly update for your convenience. Here’s a brief overview of this week’s opportunities:

  • Storm spotting (As described in the rules)
  • Random bonus points (If you’re gonna pander, be creative!)
  • The Wx Challenge (If you’re one of the few forecasters who made the playoffs)
  • Claim the unclaimed bracket from our challenge. (I mean, you gotta prove it was your bracket, but it’s 5 points just sitting there!)

So yeah, with the NCAA Tournament complete, the WxChallenge winding down, and our Instagram Challenge/Weekly Siren Test on a mid-season break, storm spotting is your best way to earn AtmoCup points from here on out. For your convenience, here’s the list detailing how many points each storm item you claim is worth.

It seems unlikely that you’ll get to claim any of the winter weather phenomena at this point in the year (sorry Snownado fans). This means you gotta go out and chase some real storms if you wanna win the AtmoCup!

Now get out there and earn some dang points.
