"1010mb lows" seems like an oxymoron from up here in Mpls, where the mercury regularly drops into 980s and low 990s, in the wintertime, whenever a low tracks over the Twin Cities (luckily when that occurs Wisconsin is getting most of the really crappy weather). Is this because of elevation, or latitude, or both? Seems like the range of pressures is a lot wider up here than in south FL, both highs and lows. Ok to post this type of basic weather question (probably shouldn't have tried to post until I am completely awake...many typos).
