Fox 2 Weather - Missing in Action?!?!

Post by MWmetalhead » Sat Jun 01, 2019 2:00 pm

A half dozen counties are currently under severe wx warnings on a busy Saturday where as recently as 24 hours prior, the severe wx threat was advertised as being very low.

Fox 2 cannot even give its viewers the courtesy of a watch/warning map on screen!!!

Weather Authority? MY ASS!!!

Someone's shift must've started at 2PM.

Magically, for the first time this afternoon, I now see a watch/warning graphic and crawl on Fox 2.

Only about an hour tardy in getting the word out. Nice job, Fox 2!

Maybe they saw your post and decided to take action because you said so.

What are you stuck in your basement working on a pudcast and haven't been outside the last hour to see how bad it is

My guess is Lori Pinson's shift started at 2PM and the weather department at Fox 2 was completely unstaffed prior to then.

Once Channel 2 started to actually dispense weather warning info, they did a great job. Too bad this good coverage didn't occur on a more timely basis. As a point of comparison, I saw the first break-in on channel 7 just before 1PM.

I dont know how big of a role she actually had on the technical side but personally, since Jessica Starr died, I dont really like the FOX 2 weather team anymore. Pinson and the other girl that got her minutes increased are completely "meh".

OTOH, The EAS system keeps breaking into both WMMQ and 107one in Ann Arbor.

WMMQ was in the midst of a CHOICE Van Hagar cut when I heard the "eeeee. eeeee. eeeeee." to inform me of a storm in Grand Rapids. Flip through the dial, land on 107.1, and THEY get interrupted. I don't see anything of note on the radar, yet hear loud rumbles here in Brighton.

TBH, I wasn't aware of any weather events today until it got really dark around 1pm. And it's been a fkn circus around here all day. We lost power briefly around 1:30 or so for 20 minutes. It's been on since.

Another big boom right now just scared the kids. Wtf.

I see some nasty stuff coming this way right now on the radar. Let's see if it lives up to the hype.
