More Inverted Language from Meteorologists

In Warnings I talk about how meteorologists’ language inverts based on their forecast. Once we have forecast (for example) a blizzard, we are cheering for the blizzard all the way.

So, I got a kick out of this article in Cleveland Magazine quoting WKYC TV’s Betsy Kling:

Weather worries … Recently, Kling predicted that it would be overcast, but when the sun peeked out by noon, she freaked out because she said it’d be cloudy all day. When the sun went away, she told her husband, “OK, the sun’s gone; that’s good.”

His response … “You’re the only person in Northeast Ohio who says that.”
