Thunderstorms Four Ways

The weather forecasts over the past two or three weeks have been pretty much the same every day: mostly cloudy, fog likely, chance of rain, thunderstorms possible. I can't recall any time in the past with thunderstorms predicted so many days in a row. It's been tedious run for those looking to get out on the water in small boats. But the National Weather Service has tried to "spice up" the repetitive forecast by utilizing various different thunderstorm icons on different days. As if you could maybe pick which day's lightning strike looks least dangerous for your particular activity.

Two weeks of thunderstorm warnings - blech. Poor you.

My favourite are the marine forecasts with the traffic-light coloured sailboat icons. As with regular road traffic, yellow tends not to slow people down: most people think, "great winds! get down here quick, before it turns red!"
