With Pittsburgh wondering exactly what happened to the predicted afternoon freezing rain conditions that prompted widespread closings today, local station WTAE said it was switching up its forecasting method in a bid to be more accurate going forwards.
“We’ll be using a pair of dice from now on.”
Meteorologist Ashley DeNardo said it was the best way she knew to predict the weather at this point, with double sixes meaning it’s going to be just as dire as every Pittsburgh forecaster has predicted.
“And if it’s snake eyes, that means 96 degrees and humid.”
Sensing that WTAE was ahead of the game in terms of meaningful forecasting, WPXI has reportedly fixed up an old prop from Wheel of Fortune that it will be using for its 11pm broadcast.
“This might just be our best forecast yet.”
Asked if they had any comment about their plans for the 11pm news tonight, KDKA said it was just going to randomly pick a forecast from its 70 year history of broadcasting.
“One of them has to be right.”
