Wise words from a wise man ☺
Dear Trolls, Haters, and Know-It-Alls:

The next few days will be very challenging due to a complex winter weather situation here in the great state of Alabama.

Okay first off just a reminder; I have nothing to do with school closing decisions. They are made by men and women in school administration that have a very difficult job, just like me. They are doing the best they can with the information they have. But I don't know when schools will close or when decisions will be made.

I am also totally cognizant of the fact that our forecasts can be wrong. Forecast mistakes have always happened, and always will. Especially with dealing with winter weather. And that is true for any part of the United States, not just Alabama.

We spend long hours away from our families writing forecast products and discussions that give a very clear explanation of what we expect… Far beyond beyond looking at a simple phone app. If you honestly take the time to read what we write, you will understand uncertainty, and forecast specifics you won't find anywhere else.

I have learned most of the time when you send the hateful messages to us, you have not even read our products, or checked our latest forecast discussion. During winter weather events, the forecast will always be changing. If you don't constantly check for updates, you are using old information that will not help you very much.

Before you post that hate message, please read the latest discussion on the blog. I have been doing this a very long time, and can handle the vitriol. But you don't want to look foolish complaining about a forecast was actually correct.

Let's all take a big deep breath, and we will get through the week together just fine.

See you on the blog. http://www.alabamawx.com

Love,

Your Pal James
