Nemo Naming Controversy?

This story was pretty funny. There was a big snowstorm in the Northeast. The Weather Channel is calling it “Nemo”.

What’s the problem?  Meteorologists insist that only hurricanes get names.  It isn’t “scientifically accurate” to name winter storms.

The Weather Channel says that, by naming storms, it’s easier for viewers to follow what is happening.

I agree with the Weather Channel.  If they want to start using a new naming convention, that’s freedom of the press.  It’s easier to follow and remember big storms when they’re named.  It might lead to confusing news coverage, because the Weather Channel is using the new naming convention, but other media sources aren’t.
