Here Comes….Alfred

With a few days to go before Halloween we are getting ready for a winter storm!  Yikes.   Our team of meteorologists at WFSB has named this one Alfred. 

My favorite Alfred is Alfred E. Neuman, but the storm is not named after the MAD mascot.

Alfred, engineering wizard/butler for Batman?

No, and I intentionally used a picture of Alfred from the 1960’s television series rather than the one from the movies.

This first winter storm of the season is named after Alfred Hitchcock.

Tune in to Channel today and all weekend for the latest on Winter Storm Alfred.  For more on the history of why Channel 3 names storms, read this post from earlier this year:  http://dennishouse.wordpress.com/2011/01/26/snow-storm-named-after-actor-denis-leary/

  1. This is the only station that names winter storms. It is silly, a gimmick, and no one cares, uses, or remembers the names except for a handful of WFSB regular viewers.

    I think I’M going to name this one “Harold.”
