bad weather forcasting

This pertains to the weather forcast on November 27th. I could not believe how WRONG this forcast was. One the evening on the 26th it started. The first 15 minutes of the news was all weather. The weatherman pretty much guaranteeing in my location, 4 inches throughout the night and an additional 4-8 the next day. I got nothing. "NOTHING". What a scare they put people in. Weather warnings, forced closings and delays of schools, saying things like don't go out unless you have too. This whole thing is getting ridiculous, and this is only the beginning. I suggest lay off the Hollywood Production method and stick to something more normal, and if you were wrong, admit it. I've never seen a weatherman admit he made a mistake. I probably never will.

Agreed! At the very least, they could appear just a wee bit chagrinned the next day.

Well, as you can't expect a news reader to be a journalist, neither can a weather reader be expected to be a meteorologist!

WPXI is shite since the chi'gger beotch from Atlanta started the news. Same for KDKA with the chi'gger beotch from Cleveland. Same for WTAE since the chi'gger sports/news loser. Note to advertisers: when I see a black on TV, I change the channel.

Hey. Unless its a tornado or severe flood warning for people in very low lying areas. I say go outside....look up. Then look down. You then have instant weather reading. If your not personally able send your child or grandchild outside. Then when they report back in a few min. you still have a more reliable weather report. Sometimes I cant help but think the TV stations are tied in with merchants who just need to unload overstocked items such as bread,milk and toiletpaper. The last forecast filled carts and cleared the shelves. Go look up..look down. Make do with what you have. And watch the TV weather for pastime. Keep your money for when You need it. jmo

I am glad to see at least two people agree. One other thing that makes me laugh, the 14 day forcast. Like I am going to make plans according to the weather 14 days from now. They have people kinda like brain washed thinking, "I have to watch the weather, I have to watch the weather". I usually flick on the weather channel, watch the radar for a few seconds, then I know what its going to do for awhile.
