Let it snow! Let it snow!
Since several have asked for a blog to comment on weather coverage today.... So here it is.
I just watched the noon news, and the Power ofLocal 5+9+12 Ultimate Precision Doppler Weather Plus folks predict 1-2-3 inches of snow by 6 0r 7 p.m., and 4-5-6 inches of snow by midnight or 1 a.m. (Ch. 12 just announced it will blow out "The Insider" at 4:30 p.m. for Tim Hedrick and snow coverage.)
Here are the noon predictions:
--Ch. 5 Eric Green: 3-5 inches. "I think 6 will be the exception, not the norm." Heaviest band SE of Cincinnati along Ohio River.
--Ch. 9 Larry Handley: 1-3 inches by 6 p.m., 3-6 inches by 11:30 p.m.
--Ch. 12 Jeff Creighton: 2-3 inches by 7 p.m., and 4-6 inches by midnight-1 a.m. He had heaviest concentrations at Falmouth (6.7") and Owenton (6.9").
That's their predictions. Now I'll make a few of my own predictions:
--Jeff Hirsh's report at 5 minutes after noon about people going out to buy milk, bread and snow shovels will not be the only time we hear reports about consumers stocking up today.
--Viewers will complain about the on-screen weather graphics consuming so much of the TV picture.
--You'll hear coworkers and friends use the term "White Death," but nobody on TV news will utter that phrase.
Now it's your turn to post your weather predictions and observations... Have fun!
