Re: WX Channel causes confusion

The only set criteria is what the Weather Channel has made up in their little pea brains. This is NOT a standard that the National Weather Service or anyone else has ratified or uses. This is solely something that the Weather Channel has started using on its own like their ridiculous Torcon Index.

This is all about creating hype for financial gain and nothing to do with REAL weather forecasting or reporting.

A link to an article about how the rest of the weather community feels about this absurd naming of winter storms.

I have to side with you there »www.weather.com/services/notify_···ndefined charging $7-10 / month for something as simple as email alerts. I provide the service for free as it's a simple task really even provide a weekly forecast for the users selected areas activated for forecast. I'm working on building a API to work with GOogle Voice and send text messaging too but that's on the back burner because personal things happened this holiday and financial worries.
