Where were you when the temperature dropped 20 degrees today?

And it did.

What appeared to be a very nice Saturday quickly turned into a change of seasons. Weather took so many directions today that it changed as often as Imelda Marcos changes her shoes.

Within an hour the temperature plummeted from 75 to 55 degrees. Reminded me of a blog I posted in April.

When I worked at WTMJ the place had some wonderful weather people. I won’t mention the particular meteorologist who told me why a certain forecast had been badly bungled.

“The wind shifted.”

On another occasion when the wind did not shift…

“A front came through.”

And my favorite, when neither of those occurred…

“Kevin, it’s not an exact science.”

About one of his answers: “A front came through.” The Journal Sentinel explains:

“It’s due to a chilly phenomenon weather experts call a ‘back door front’ or a ‘pneumonia front’.”

I submit it’s due to a phenomenon weather experts call CYA.
