Each year long range forecasters at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center issue a seasonal forecast. This year’s forecast for April, May and June are calling for good chances of warmer and wetter weather than normal.
Long-time Calhoun prognosticator, the late Willard Jones, when asked about the weather for Spring, would say, "It will get a little warmer." He would then pontificate he likes to keep it simple, and he works for free as a weatherman.
He said in the old days of radio the weather man would issue a two sentence forecast and now a man or woman throw their hands around explaining the situation. Now it's a TV extravaganza with maps, video and sound effects that goes on and on.
Willard continued, "They wear me out getting to the point, and then I forget what the forecast was."
Willard, is there someway you can come back to earth and help us keep it simple?
