Stormy Weather

Weather Channel to air movies for first time �| accessAtlanta: "'The Perfect Storm' begins a four-week period in which The Weather Channel will try some Friday night movies.

The films areeither weather-themed or have plots in which weather plays a key role, Darby said. Meteorologist Jennifer Carfagno will host movie night and offer commentary.

Other movies include the documentary 'March of the Penguins,' the thriller 'Deep Blue Sea' and 'Misery,' for which Kathy Bates won an Academy Award."

  2. Does it have weather in it?

  3. The Weather Channel is trying to become a program network. They've had documentaries for years and other shows like Storm Chasers. About the only time you can find actual weather reports is in the morning. So, where does one go for weather reports these days? ---Oh, yeah, my iPhone!

  4. Actually, both NBC and ABC have had digital weather networks for a while, though they are repurposing those, too...

  5. EARTHQUAKE and VOLCANO are marginal choices under consideration. Tectonic weather.

  6. "I'm sick and tired of these cumulonimbus snakes on this cirrocumulus plane!"

  7. Well, unless it's a slasher-psycho-type movie set entirely in a basement, doesn't weather figure in almost every movie ever made?

    Next up: Singing in the Rain, followed by The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; the midnight movie will be Falcon and the Snowman (hey, there's snow!).

  8. They should hire you to program the movies!

    Hurricanes and "Key Largo" go together quite well.

  10. Re Frank's comment, above - Well, I just look outside to get the weather these days, but if I want to know what's going on somewhere else, like Alvin, TX or Portland, OR, I'm just out of luck, I guess.

  11. Aside from the Web, Richard, there's still the surviving weather services, including the breaks on TWC itself.
