So winter storm "Nemo" is dumping snow on the Northeast, and "Orca" is on its way. How have I missed the naming of winter storms? We're 14 letters into the alphabet, and I never read a word about the first 13.

The Weather Channel announced Tuesday that they planned to start naming winter storms, similar to how the National Weather Service names tropical systems. Why?

They've been doing it long before Tuesday, I think they started it last year.

True the date of this article is October 8, 2012.

You should put a quote box around words you lift from other websites, lest some may think they are your own.

You are correct and my bad.

I thought we had a thread about this last year when they started it .......

big difference between the national weather service and the weather channel .......

nothing "official" about them, they are just one of many news organizations .....
They've got a name for the winners in the world
I want a name when I lose
They call Alabama the Crimson Tide
Call me Deacon Blues

FairTax - because the Government shouldn't use the tax code to pick the winners and losers ........
