Leave it to the National Weather Service – the guys entrusted on providing the public with direct, concrete information on things like inversion layers, upper level lows and downdrafts – to be just as masterful with coded messages.
Take a look at this one, courtesy of the guys at the NWS bureau in Alaska. All other weather service stations put out similar messages when a significant weather event is inbound to an area, thunderstorms and heavy snowfall and what have you:
It may not not look like it, but the meteorologists used this “forecast” to send a ‘Da Vinci Code’-esque message to Washington D.C. last Friday. Take a few moments and see if you can spot it yourself.
Can you see it? Good eye, future CIA recruit. Kind of cute, huh?
Or maybe you can’t. Don’t feel bad. Just read the first letter of each row of the message, top to bottom, starting with the word “pressures.”
Kind of gives a whole new meaning to the phrase: “Special weather statement.”
