Gotta wonder if it's an attention grabbing thing. Much easier to get an audience for storm razzmatazz than it is for a low pressure system moving toward the gulf.

Probably because of insurance companies. They want that 'named storm' deductible.

I read that it was a thing the Weather Channel was doing. They are not named by NOAA.

Think this is the first year. Maybe last year but we didn't have enough winter storms to name last year.

Just the weather channel. People follow named storms closer. Pretty lame marketing tactic

The Weather Channel . The most TERRIBLE weather reporting in history. Hell all they do is look at maps and show them to ya. They NEVER tell us WHY shite will happen. PLUS I think they get an extra bonus for saying ATLANTA in EVERY segment. SAD INDEED.

Since insurance companies got involved. A named storm means higher deductible in most cases.

Weather Channel trying to take over, but really causing confusion with the National Weather Service and the general public.
