Warmth May End With A Bang

December 5, 2012; 7:30 PM ET

It was nice to have Chris Landsea from NHC here in town to give a talk at Penn State and talk with us here at AccuWeather this morning. It was informative and he let us in on how NHC hopes to avoid confusion about storms like Sandy in the future and why the Weather Service handled Sandy the way they did. Obviously, lots of folks were unhappy with how Sandy was handled by the Weather Service, but it's good to see that that the issue is being dealt with so they can do a better job when a storm like Sandy happens again ... and if it's happened before, then eventually something like it will happen again.

I am @AccuFrank on Twitter, which is the most reliable way to get alerted when I post new stuff. There's also this Facebook fan page thingie, which is not particularly reliable for that but it's good for posting little things where 140 characters won't do them justice.
