Radar Shows a Midge Storm

Posted By on Fri, Jun 3, 2011 at 10:31 AM

One of the coolest things about the arrival of midges on the shores of Lake Erie is the sheer mass and magnitude of the little pterodactyls. Evidence: that green area on the radar of NewsNet5's weather forecast last night isn't precipitation, it's the midges, dense and thick enough to be picked up by the fancy doppler machines.

(Incidentally, we're not entirely sure why NewsNet5's weather forecast features strobing red laser lights, but we dig it. Gives the broadcast a James Bond, nuclear-standoff, end-of-world feel to the affair.)
