Yes, the NWS went to issuing warnings more often than they used to.  You won't get an argument about that one--but, more often than not, I have heard warnings going out from TV stations about unusual weather that came right up to the limit of an issued warning.  I've even heard one TV weatherman say that he didn't know why the NWS wasn't putting out a warning about a bad thunderstorm cell that he was watching on his stations weather radar feed.

It isn't only the NWS that takes things to extremes.

I agree, mother nature can be a real bitch, just ask farther God . I think mabey the weather channel is on the right track with odds and probabability . but if conditions are right it can go from conditions to warning  real quick I guess. I can see the overhype angle , just think of what would happen if  fox the weather channel , and nataline woods or this chery anthoney was in the path of a tornado.  Lets face it , some if it is about rateings, or all of it . If rateing drop or a low hurricane session , they can alwyas pull out  the old katrina foot age.  Yes, I am mad about the hype, but there does need to be a common sence balance , yes, they can cry wolf to many times , but better safe and overprepared than sorry ,  gee we could go with the terroist colors , mabey we can get them cheap now . kg4ymc Grin
