Society for the Naming of Atmospheric Rivers

January 2, 2023
“Forecasters are focused on an atmospheric river that’s expected to bring heavy rain and strong winds Wednesday and Thursday.”

Among my resolutions for the new year, the most peculiar is a desire for all of us on the West Coast to get our act together and stop letting the East Coast have all the “branding” fun.

Hurricanes get proper names, don’t they?

Why should atmospheric rivers be given any less dignity and recognition?

I hereby bestow on the West Coast atmospheric river of December, 2022 and January, 2023 the formal name of Adrianne.

I expect all future broadcasts to honor this designation.
