An Open Letter to KABC’S Weather Team

Dear Dallas Raines, Bri Winkler, Danny Romero, and Jonathan Novack:

I have been watching KABC’s “Eyewitness News” for as long as I can remember. Saying that, you can tell that I am very impressed with your anchors. Notice how I didn’t mention the weather “team.”

If you were a true team, you four would live your lives on the bench. Take this El Nino farce. You made it sound like in February each of us would need to buy arks. February was the hottest February on record.

Then, March was going to the rainy month. Okay, three rainy days so far. But none in the next week.

And 1/10 of an inch is not a storm. A drizzle for ten minutes is not a reason to go on “Storm Watch.” I can feel the rest of the rest of the country laughing at us. “Those weak Southern Californians,” while the east coast is mopping up after record rains. FEET of rain, not a miniscule amount.

A final thought: A Magic 8 Ball might not be the best “helper” for your forecasts.

Sincerely,

Erin Tharp
