One Channel, Two Wildly Different Snow Forecasts
If you were watching WCBS-TV/Channel 2 in New York within about a 20-minute period tonight, you were treated to two very different forecasts for the snow storm expected to hit the area Friday.
Lonnie Quinn’s forecast on CBS 2 News at 6:00:
David Bernard’s forecast on the CBS Evening News at 6:30:
Depending on which forecast the south shore of Long Island listens to, they’ll either get four to eight inches of snow or one to two feet.
UPDATE: CNN’s Chad Myers pointed out that the computer models are very different. If you look at these forecasts, New York City will get either 5.7 inches or 23.3 inches of snow.
The decimal point conveys precision!
