THU 2/12 MORNING UPDATE: "STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT, EXCHANGING GLANCES, WONDERING IN THE NIGHT... WHAT WERE THE CHANCES."

- Frank Sinatra

A summary of what will and will not happen over the next 7 days in the I-95 corridor.

WILL HAPPEN:
1. Be unseasonably warm Saturday, tricking the croakuses (sp?) into an early bloom.
2. Become extremely cold Sunday and Monday. Highs in the 10's north (PA) to 20's south (MD). Folks in PA are go to approach 0 by Monday morning.
3. Stay relatively dry throughout, with at most some flurries here and there.
4. Warm up a little as we go into next week.

WILL NOT HAPPEN (I hope)
1. A big storm next week as previously forecasted. The northern and southern stream both have the capability to deliver a massive storm, given all the elements discussed below. But they are not going to merge off the east coast for a while due to the interference of a High sinking from the Rockies into the Gulf Coast.

2. A major computer model blunder that misses all the signals like it did for the February 1979 blizzard (remember that one folks?) For those of you born before 1970, we all went to bed Sunday night thinking it was cold and there'd be a little bit of snow. We woke up to 12 or more inches.

3. I come back on this site in 24 hours and tell you everything I just told you has to be thrown out because the strangers in the night (northern and southern streams) decided to link up after all.
