This Is It.

FRIDAY'S WHIFF OF SNOW LIKELY TO BE WINTER'S 
FINALE FOR MOST AREAS OF THE MID-ATLANTIC 


BELOW: 
U.S. GFS snowmap for 1 PM Friday shows a general 1-2" for the region. 
Light snow expected to begin by 9 PM and continue into the AM commute


LONG RANGE INDICATIONS SHOW "SPRING SPORTS" SEASON MAY FEEL MORE LIKE SUMMER, AS HIGHS COULD HIT 75-80 F BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING!

8-14 day NOAA temperature probability shows a growing chance the 
Eastern U.S. may see much above normal temps toward middle weeks of March.

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.
