Winter Storm Athena. What’s in a Name?

Myself . By T.V. Antony Raj


The Winter Storm Team of The Weather Channel has named the current nor’easter “Winter Storm Athena” – first named winter storm! However, shortly after The Weather Channel announced the name Athena this morning, the National Weather Service office in Bohemia, N.Y., circulated an internal direction to its forecasters not to use The Weather Channel’s name for the Nor’easter storm.

Forecasters predict up to six inches of snowfall combined with winds gusting over 35 mph at times Wednesday afternoon through Thursday mid-morning across portions of Eastern Pennsylvania, including the Philadelphia Metro Area, New Jersey, southeastern New York, Connecticut and interior New England, still undergoing extensive recovery efforts from Sandy.
