WHY DON’T YOU GUYS POST COLORFUL MAPS FROM WEATHER MODELS?
Sometimes, we do. But we try to limit those maps to the times when we are very confident that the event will occur. Quite often, outlets post colorful weather model maps to attract attention. This can be bad for several reasons; it creates unnecessary hype, and it makes meteorologists look like they don’t know what they are talking about.
Instead, we try to convey uncertainty when it does exist, while laying out the details and breakdown of a potential storm system. Knowing the information and potential while understanding the uncertainty involved is a much better way of forecasting.
When posting the colorful maps is applicable, trust us, we will post them.
