Winter Storms To Get Names

It’s news that’s going to affect us in the Northland – especially with the amount of snow, ice, and cold weather we get.  The Weather Channel has announced that they’ll start to name select winter storms – much as hurricanes and tropical storms get names.

Is this really a change from what we’re used to now?

Some storms have already attracted names in the Northland.  From the “Halloween Mega Storm of 1991″  to the “Christmas Mega Storm of 2009″, local news and weather outlets  have been attaching names to some of these winter weather patterns – albeit on a random basis.

With the Weather Channel involved, the blizzards that roll through the midwest will probably now see names that are more national in nature.
