Strunk White, Idiot Weatherman: Over The Rainbow

Strunk White, Idiot Weatherman, has new weather maps on his web site. 35 of them. Really. "Areas of concern" are color-coded. And because absolutely everything weather-related is a concern around here, the maps look like a box of crayons. The big box. Here is just part of the map legend:

Red: Tornado
Yellow: Thunderstorm
Light Green: Flash Flood
Dark Green: Flood
Brown: Wind
Orange: Heat
Purple: Freeze
Light Pink: Fire Danger
Dark Pink: Frost
Gray: Fog
Light Blue: Significant Weather

And this is just for summer. Once winter hits, I anticipate that the entire visible spectrum will be represented.

My favorite is "Significant Weather". "Hey, there's gonna be a flash flood, a tornado, and some fires, then the significant weather is gonna start!"

What, no meteor swarms? Or are those filed under "significant"?
