The D.C. split?

By Jason Samenow

Some Washington weather watchers, including visitors of this blog, will swear to the existence of the "D.C. split". The split scenario occurs when precipitation seems on a collision course with the District only to break apart to the south and north as it closes in.

"D.C. split" adherents will definitely appreciate this comic (h/t Andrew Freedman), courtesy the blog xkcd:
