The Mid-Atlantic Just Survived Every Type of Weather

The National Weather Service’s March 12 forecast for the Baltimore-Washington region was so absurdly comprehensive, it actually went viral. Here’s a choice excerpt:

WE SOMETIMES SAY THE FORECAST HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. I THINK WE CAN TAKE THAT LITERALLY AT THE MOMENT . . . AS THIS FORECAST HAS ALMOST EVERY POSSIBLE WEATHER TYPE/HAZARD . . . IN THE FIRST 36 HOURS. STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS . . . SNOW . . . WIND CHILLS. . . STRONG WINDS . . . UNSEASONABLY WARM TEMPS . . . UNSEASONABLY COLD TEMPS . . . POTENTIAL FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS . . . MINOR COASTAL FLOOD POTENTIAL . . . THERE IS NOT MUCH LEFT

That’s right, “almost every possible weather type,” even ones that absolutely contradict each other. (“Unseasonably warm” and “unseasonably cold” in one region on one day?!)

I guess sometimes March is in like a lion, and then that lion fights 10 other lions to see who gets to devour the lamb.

By the way, those “fire weather concerns” are in effect through Friday afternoon for most of Maryland. Be careful!
