Weather Channel to start hurricane – just to cover it!

Powerful convection machines will be harnessed together in the Atlantic to actually create a storm.

Powerful convection machines will be harnessed together in the Atlantic to actually create a storm.

It’s been mighty quiet on the weather front – and the Weather Channel is panicking. After all, they’ve got dozens of weather reporters with nothing to report, sending their ratings into a downward spiral. As far as hurricanes go, it’s been an uneventful season – the 8th year since the last Category 3 hurricane to make landfall. For that reason, the channel is attempting to start a hurricane itself, using sophisticated technology. Huge convection machines are being set up on an island off the coast of Africa, powered by electric generators onboard three ships. The convection machines are set up to blow air at hundreds of miles an hour in a clockwise direction. If the conditions are right, that will force the atmosphere in the area to rise, adding to the winds and actually starting a storm, which the Weather Channel is hoping will become a hurricane. Once the storm starts, the Weather Channel will finally have something to track, showing satellite images and using sophisticated equipment to estimate where the hoped-for hurricane will head. “Chances are, the hurricane won’t approach the United States, much lass make landfall,” said a source. “But if it does, the Weather Channel stands to gain incredible audience share.”
