During the 2012-2013 Winter Storm Season, The Weather Channel decided to name winter storms. This idea was first used by the Southern California Weather Authority, part of The Weather Space.com Networks. TheWeatherSpace.com will attempt to stop the channel from doing it again in the 2013-2014 season.
Naming Winter Storms has had mixed emotions from both sides of the fence. But with names like Yogi and Nemo, who could take it seriously? It seems as if The Weather Channel wanted to create a monopoly in being the only entity to name these storms, which many seemed to have followed. Others are seeing confusion with insurance agencies looking into these as official name storms.
Here at TheWeatherSpace.com, we are prepared to put a stop to it, showing The Weather Channel that naming storms will confuse more than help. While we do issue Severe and Tornado Watches here at TheWeatherSpace.com, I feel naming storms and having insurance agencies follow it should be up to the government, not The Weather Channel.
So what is the plan? If The Weather Channel decides to name winter storms this next season, TheWeatherSpace.com will be using their names as our own. Meaning if the first storm shows up and they do not name it, we will name it what their first name on their list is, branding it TheWeatherSpace.com as well.
When search engines look for this name, it will pop up. When The Weather Channel names the same named storm and it happens to be one they missed, it will also pop-up on search engines. This will confuse the public on which entity’s storm name is correct.
By doing this, The Weather Channel will see that public confusion can set in. When we issue weather alerts at TheWeatherSpace.com, they say TWS Severe Thunderstorm Watch and so forth. The Weather Channel does not have this, instead they say “Winter Storm Nemo”. In reality they should be saying, The Weather Channel’s Winter Storm Nemo every single time they use the name.
So this is the plan … TheWeatherSpace.com will be awaiting The Weather Channel’s 2013-2014 winter storm names and we will assign them as our names as well, with our own category system for each. This plan is in hopes that public confusion sets in and The Weather Channel sees just what they are doing is wrong. When they abort the mission of naming winter storms in the monopoly, we will abort this plan.To e-mail the CEO and Senior Meteorologist of TheWeatherSpace.com, use admin@TheWeatherSpace.com
