National Weather Service Set To Stop SHOUTING The Weather
It's a relic of a bygone era, but that will end next month. The National Weather Service announced it will no longer issue forecasts in all capital letters.
If you've ever seen a forecast from the National Weather Service, it's in all capital letters. That practice dates back to the late 1840's; back to the days of telegraph. But in this age of social media, all caps is considered shouting. With recent equipment upgrades, the weather folks can now lower their voices.
The Seattle Times reports, beginning May 11th, no more ALL CAPS unless IT'S REALLY SERIOUS.
