Paul Gross explains why naming winter storms is ridiculous
DETROIT – You’ve probably heard the Weather Channel refer to any winter storm of substance by a name. So why don’t you hear the Local4Casters (or anybody else) call winter storms by names? The Weather Channel staff just decided themselves a few years ago to start naming significant winter storms. Rarely are there ever two completely different significant winter storms affecting the same region of the country. Furthermore, naming winter storms instills unnecessary fear into some people because you are assigning a perceived similar level of risk from that winter storm as from a hurricane.
