    Hello,

    I am currently writing a research paper on whether meteorologists over dramatize large scale weather events in order to gain views/ratings. My thesis states that they do, but only to bring attention to life threatening events. I was hoping that a meteorologist(doesn’t have to work for TWC) could comment on this and give their views on this topic. I personally do not see anything wrong with this, mainly because I would rather be over prepared than caught dead, so please do not see this as “exposing TWC for click bait!” but as research for this paper.

    Thanks,

    Chase Green

    Dear Chase Green,

    Though I am not a meteorologist, I do research and I plan to be an on camera meteorologist. I personally don’t think they would exaggerate (to my known extent, anyway) but they do try to get the word out.   Do you remember the Joplin tornado?? It was an EF-5 and killed 158 people; deadliest tornado since 1938 (forgive me if I’m wrong about the date) and the meteorologists at TWC worked overtime to get the word out. Anyway, to answer your question, I don’t think they exaggerate; but I may be wrong.
