A coastal flood warning remains in effect until 1pm Monday and winds will continue, but winter storm Izzy seems to have had a lighter touch on Rye than expected.

Of course, that is not the case if you live along Milton Road, Kirby Lane or the other areas through town that are typically subject to coastal flooding even when the rest of town sees milder effects.

Con Ed is only reporting one outage across Rye as of 10am Monday.

  1. “Winter Storm Izzy”??? What makes you think snowstorms have names? The National Weather Service doesn’t name the snow. Maybe you’re thinking of The Weather Channel, which has assigned cute names to snowstorms for a few years now. You shouldn’t indulge them in their publicity stunt.

    One Facebook user posted THIS criticism: “Naming winter storms is the dumbest idea ever. Why hasn’t NWS or any other reputable weather reporting source joined in the naming? Oh, maybe they still feel their role is serious reporting – instead of sensationalizing, dramatizing and commercializing.” It’s pretty much how I have always felt.

    TWC’s Tom Niziol attempted to deflect the criticism: “One reason we’re doing this, simply put, is we can. We cover weather on a national scale. By ascribing a name to a weather system that’s gonna create those types of impacts, we can follow it right across the country.”

    THAT’S their answer? “We do it because we CAN”?? And the only way the personalities at TWC can keep their eye on a weather system is to give it some kind of cute name? That’s the silliest thing I’ve ever heard.
