I am really bothered by TWC (and now the Weather Underground) naming winter storms. I think it's just an attempt by TWC to sensationalize storms for ratings and profit. It in no way contributes to the advancement of understanding of weather systems to the general populous, and it not supported in any way by the National Weather Service. In fact, it lessons their ability to serve the public by putting additional confusion out there.
