Weather That’s Too Complex

I faced an interesting dilemma today with the forecast. It is too complex… really.

This is going to be one of those times when the weather will be tough to describe after it’s over! The forecast has snow, sleet, freezing rain, rain more sleet and more snow. And, every place in the state will see different things at different times!

Even though the more demanding weather might occur late Wednesday (heavy snow over frozen ‘stuff’), with its impact felt into Thursday morning, I mostly concentrated on late Tuesday into Wednesday. My thought was, the viewer’s greatest concern goes to the first impact.

It’s tough to know if I made the right call. Explaining everything relative to its severity would have given little time to Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. In fact there would have been little time to give a detailed explanation of anything.

I’m sure I’m not alone. Forecasters all over the Northeast had to be pondering the same things.

It’s really not important for viewers to consider my thought process. It’s my own personal hell.

  1. Yes, it is important for viewers to know your thought processes. It reminds us of the difficulty of the meteorology world … trying to predict something so complex and at relatively high resolution … amazing work. 73 de N1QVE Harry
