Too many people are going around town saying that we were forecasting higher amounts of snow in Jonesboro. Here is a clip from the 6:00 News on Wednesday night. I showed that the National Weather Service had issued a heavy snow warning, BUT we had a more conservative forecast than them.
Many radio stations (I won't say names) around the region were taking the NWS forecast and reading it on the air. THAT WAS NOT THE FORECAST FROM KAIT.
This is not me bashing the NWS or the radio stations. We just happened to have different forecasts with this storm. There are many times when the tables are turned and I'm wrong. It's the nature of the business.
The NWS offices that we work with in this area are AWESOME and I do not want to come across like I am boasting. At the same time, I do not want to be misquoted. Even some spouses from our KAIT employees are misquoting me!!! LOL
Below is the Top Story in the 6:00 News from Wednesday night. The proof is in the pudding. Our forecast was pretty darn close!
I'm done blowing off some steam!
