Why weather reporting is done
While seasonally such weather events are likely the reason is because there is a risk in which awareness is necessary. That is why the National Weather Service issues the report in the first place and why The News-Herald publishes what the experts say is potentially possible.
Besides, the web is being read by former area residents who want to keep informed about all the things that have or are happening here.
Obviously if the weather does not have a severity factor than The News-Herald won't issue a notice.
However, as long as the National Weather Service indicates a potential threat to property and lives I'll continue to inform through the web.
