Inside The Last Envelope...
COULD BE THE BIGGEST SURPRISE (OR DISAPPOINTMENT) OF ALL.



European ensemble means surface pressure for 7 AM Friday 3/4

The last time we saw an arrangement like this was on 
Saturday, February 14, 2003. Soon after, two things happened:

1) Some (but not all) forecasters said the storm would stay south of DC, because the High was too strong and would overpower the Low, sending it out to sea; and then...

2) None of that actually came true. BWI airport saw over 2 feet of snow in 3 days. 

2003 was a snowy winter with a moderate El Nino, but was not remembered for being intensely cold, until of course, early March.

They say history repeats, but do weather patterns? We will find out soon enough what is in that last envelope, won't we.
