    Yeah, that was the main problem with the science in Day After Tomorrow. They never took into account the date RDU reached 90. Ruined the whole damn movie.

    On the plus side, enhanced is even less than moderate and moderate is just, well, moderate.

    It's your own fault. Anyone who lives in the South and starts a sentence with, "Ergo" never gets snow.

    In my continuing effort to complain about the confusing severe weather warnings, I give you Kate Garner on Fox 8. When showing today's forecast that had a marginal risk over the Triad tomorrow, she explained it like this. "There is a chance of severe weather over the Triad tomorrow but the storms will only be marginally severe." Several of you commented previously that the on-air Mets would explain the confusing levels to the public. It's not looking good from here.

    If a Congressman were there I'd say, "Let's pull all the funding and shut that thing down."

    I see good old Floyd county VA got 15". I loved it there. They always do well. For those that don't know it is the county just above Patrick county.

    OK And they have to do that over and over, day after day because the scale sucks.

    This is the worst probability scale in the entire NWS. Millions of people getting info over the radio would have no idea whether "marginal" or "slight" gave the higher risk of severe weather. Many wouldn't know if they saw the map. That doesn't even factor in the approximately 50% that can't define the word "enhanced". Low, medium, high. Clear, concise, done.
