I want to meet this person

February 25, 2010

I’ve taken to checking the National Weather Service weather reports since they don’t really read like the Onion.   The Philly reporter is really chatty though.  Surprisingly chatty for such a dry format.  They describe things as “oozing”.   They described predicting the last couple storms, and how they really had no idea what this one would do.  And now:

WINDS WILL BE PICKING UP LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING...SO A
WIND ADVISORY HAS BEEN ISSUED. WE DID NOT GET CUTE WITH THE AREAL
COVERAGE OF THIS WIND ADVISORY EVEN THOUGH CRITERIA MAY NOT BE
REACHED IN THE NORTH DUE TO A MORE SUBTLE PRESSURE GRADIENT DUE
TO THE FORECAST POSITIONS OF THE STACKED LOW. LATER SHIFTS CAN
ADJUST AS NECESSARY.

I’m glad to know they haven’t started getting cute with the forecasts.  But I do find the idea intriguing.

Oh and I think they may have called us wennies:

WINTER STORM WARNINGS REMAIN IN EFFECT
FOR OUR ENTIRE AREA..EVEN IN THE SOUTH WHERE SNOW CRITERIA MAY NOT
QUITE BE REACHED (SOCIAL EFFECTS).
