“So it’s going to be really bad this weekend?”
That! Don’t ask that! Don’t ask a question already seeded with the wrong answer.
And, no, it’s not going to be all that bad this weekend.
I worked with Dan Amarante and Bob Cox this afternoon. I chatted twice with Rachel Frank who like all of us worries about her forecast… even on her days off. It’s good to have other people around to brainstorm the details.
We’re all of a like mind. This storm isn’t a big deal. Most areas will see 1-3″ with a little more in Southeastern Connecticut and along the I-395 corridor.
I chatted with a friend from another station as I drove to work today. We were talking about the explosion of data available to meteorologists. It’s a fire hose! There’s more than humans can absorb. We have to pick and choose what we consider and then hope we don’t overlook anything important.
In TV snow trumps everything–even this little snow. There might be more impact from the bitter, windy cold night that will follow, but it has to take a back seat.
When snow is in the forecast that’s all you want to hear about. I get it.
You will be served.
