Where is the rain Ginger nuts?
whoops, sorry is raining now..
The Channel 7 weather team can't even predict the weather for a particular day, so it is laughable to have them predict the weather for the winter or preach "climate change." The usual "forecast" is "It might rain. It might not. There is a 50% chance of it being sunny. There is a 50% chance it might rain. The possible highs are in the 60's, but it might be warmer or colder." We never know what the weather will be or not, relying on Channel 7. And yet they are suddenly experts on global warming?
Global warming has been going on for about 12 thousand years, glad you science guys finally agree.
The Channel 7 weather team does better than most when it comes to guessing the weather. We have to remember there are a lot of variables in weather prediction and most are not even measurable. No where is their a science which measures the effect of presures on our outer atmosphere and yet this obviously has a great effect on our weather. Give the guys a break.
This article tells me absolutly nothing. It says on one hand that it will be a mild winter, in the same breath, they say, but you never know for sure "it only takes one". Just say it, It may snow alot, but maybe it wont. Or more to the truth, we dont have a #uckin@ clue.
Well then, you should not read it then.
channel 4 doug says here n ch. co. we are split in the middle about the snow totals. the bottom half into st. marys will get 4 to 10 inches and in the top half towards D.C. we will get 7 to 13 inches of snow and the temps will be colder this year.
Way to bury the lede. The last two vague sentences are the only thing that addresses the question in the headline.
Let me try: "I predict there's equal chances we will or will not get a significant snowstorm this winter."
One request: PLEASE stop relying on flawed computer models as the gospel for forecasts. They're only marginally better than a simple guess.
Every year has extreme events. Think back to the 1930's with the Dust Bowl years. 1936 comes to mind. The Great Flood (that record at Little Falls still stands today), a brutal winter, and a brutal summer (105 degrees July 10th of that year). It *seems* like there's more "extreme" weather events because certain media outlets (NOT Channel 7) advertise just about every weather event as "extreme." Point is there have been extreme events in the past, and will be in the future.
Stuff [rain, snow, sleet, etc.] will fall from the sky and there is nothing we can do about it :) Just enjoy whatever happens and try to react the best that you can and of course be safe!
