They don't control the weather, they do their best to predict the weather events. I think the NWS does a heck of a job and appreciate all that they do.

Agreed with you 100%.

Why worry about over-hyping? If they downplayed this event, there very well may have been more lives lost, and the NWS would be under fire, so-to-speak. The NWS does a GREAT job, and I will argue that fact with anybody.

It all comes down to this: It's always better to be over-prepared, than under-prepared.

You guys are right on all counts. We're starting to see national press talking about how the NWS saved lives with their new verbage and the High Risk warning early. This is a major stepping stone to educating the public on what our "early" warning system really is.

I do an email svrwxcast when the DFW area is in Slight Risk or above. All the folks that receive mine are very appreciative.

Funny how the public loves to criticize people in weather forecasting. I'd say the proof's in the pudding this time around. SPC usually nails it 98% of the time.
