Today Show weatherman Al Roker is very angry with Bill de Blasio. At a Thursday morning press conference, the New York City mayor blamed meteorologists for botching their snow forecasts, thereby giving the city grounds to keep public schools open. “Early weather forecasts showed just 3 inches of snow incoming,” he argued. (It’s now at 9.5 inches.) That’s when Al Roker opened his Twitter account:
(Many weather forecasts depend on atmospheric measurements supplied by the government’s National Weather Service.)
Perhaps Roker’s naked Russian spa adventure with Matt Lauer was insufficiently relaxing?
“It’s a different thing to run a city than to give the weather on TV,” the mayor later told reporters. And: “You have to know what you don’t know in this world, and what we don’t know is how the weather will change.”
