Since there is a chance of severe weather today, I thought this article about television meteorologists and severe weather warnings might be appropriate. After every severe weather event, if television meteorologists break into regular shows (whether sports, Dancing with the Stars, or a favorite drama), they get slammed by viewers complaining about the coverage. This article explains why television meteorologists go live to provide timely severe weather warnings and why you should not bash them for doing so. You can read it at here.
