  •  I agree with you on two points. (8+ / 0-)
    [The Weather Channel] is a shell of its former self. They somehow made money being science-based in the 80s and 90s. I hope they try to go back to that.
    Yes it is, and me too.
    I feel the names are a good idea and I think, long term, they’ll catch on with good, solid scientific criteria for naming. For simple ease of tracking, I've got no problem with it.
    As long as the National Weather Service does the naming, I've got no problem with it either.  Until they do, I will continue to ignore the stupid names TWC devises as a way to use fear to drive up their ratings and site hits.
