2012-2013 Winter Storms Have Names, Now They Are Real Storms

Hurricanes and tropical storms always have had names to define them.  Names give these storms character and essentially give them their place in the history books.  For some reason winter storms have always gotten the shaft when it came to names.  This is no longer the case for 2013 winter storms.

Winter storms have joined the name club for storms.  The Weather Channel has started naming noteworthy winter storms for the 2012-2013 season.  The process for naming a winter storm will reflect a more complete assessment of several variables that combine to produce disruptive impacts including snowfall, ice, wind and temperature.   The Weather Channel lists it’s reasons for naming storms:

  • Naming a storm raises awareness.
  • Attaching a name makes it much easier to follow a weather system’s progress.
  • A storm with a name takes on a personality all its own, which adds to awareness.
  • In today’s social media world, a name makes it much easier to reference in communication.
  • A named storm is easier to remember and refer to in the future.

Here is the list of names chosen for the 2012-2013 snow storm season.
