Media mogul Matt Drudge has criticized “climate hysterics” at the National Weather Service for inaccurately predicting the severity of the late winter snowstorm currently engulfing the East Coast.
“Trump should clear out climate hysterics from NWS,” Drudge tweeted Tuesday. “All storms grossly exaggerated. National Guard called for 3 inches? JFH closed? Laughable.”
he Drudge Report also linked an article by the Associated Press lambasting the NWS for maintaining blizzard warnings so not to “confuse the public,” despite computer data forecasting much lower snow amounts.
“Out of extreme caution we decided to stick with higher amounts,” Greg Carbin, Chief of Forecast Operations at the Weather Prediction Center in Maryland.
On Monday, the weather service predicted 18 to 24 inches of snow in New York City, but by Tuesday afternoon there was little more than 7 inches of snow, reports the AP.
