Penn State Meteorologists Featured in NYT Article
Even though this is a blog (so hip), we’re all pretty much newspaper junkies. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get a rise any time I saw someone or something I know mentioned in the redoubtable gray lady.
Penn State meteorologists and their reactions to yesterday’s unexpectedly warm conditions were featured in a New York Times article that will be published today.
Jay Searles, a meteorologist at Penn State University, took the time-honored route of blaming the computer.
“Every single model had cold air that’s over Pennsylvania, upstate New York and Canada,” he said. “You’re not supposed to have as much sun, either. You were supposed to have more cloud cover.”
Oh well. You can’t always win. At least we beat Michigan State.
