Tracking The Fake News Washington Post Capital Weather Gang

The Washington Post Capital Weather Gang is having quite a year, featuring articles claiming the Arctic is “super-hot“, calling 2017 “the year without a winter” and predicting a ┬ánear record early cherry bloom in DC.

It is unlikely that there will be a peak bloom this year (>70% of blossoms in bloom) because most of the blossoms froze to death. The picture below was taken this morning.

And heavy snow forecast for DC on Wednesday.

    With Wed. low predicted at 25 and Thursday’s at 23, the blossoms could take another hit. I read, somewhere that they think about 40% of the blossoms were damaged. I guess we may never know for sure if the Thurday’s cold hits.

    If “The Washington Post Capital Weather Gang ” gets it wrong, they will just ignore it. But when they get it right, well then …

      If the models get it wrong or are very late in coming up with an accurate forecast than the weather gang will be wrong. The guys at Weatherbell were showing the heaviest snow would be North and West away from the coast days before the event. But all the major outlets continued to hype blizzard conditions for NYC and even Long Island long after that. Just regurgitating without analysis what weather models or a single model says is not meteorology just as regurgitating what climate models say is not climate science.

    I don’t see any snow in the forecast for DC (thankfully as I’m flying in Monday/out Wednesday), but it will be 8-10 degrees BELOW normal Wed/Thu.

    Oh, BTW it’s day 13 for a spotless speckles sun.
