Chris Higgins, FOX 2 Meteorologist, Writes Letter To Haters Questioning His Weather Skills

It doesn't end there. He's not only displeased with folks who falsely claimed he said there'd be no snow at all, but he's also apparently mad at those who alleged he lied about the amount of snow. These guys have launched an an "assault" on his "character and integrity."

And he's not just going to sit there and take it, he writes:

I pretty much nailed EVERYTHING about this storm EXCEPT the exact amounts. Again, I readily acknowledge that my numbers were low...because I'm man enough to admit where I was wrong. So to those who have called me a liar and worse -- please spare me the insults to my character and integrity. You can say I got the forecast wrong, but you cannot call me a liar.

Daily RFT sent Higgins an e-mail before publishing to see if he wanted to chat further about his haters. We'll update if we hear back. (Update: Check out our follow-up interview with Higgins).

In the meantime, make your way over to his Facebook status, which now has thousands of likes and comments.

Fox2 meteorologist Chris Higgins tells like it is to the haters. He gets Meteorologist of the Year award on that alone.  The criticisms aimed against Higgins's predictions this past Saturday night make the ones levied at fellow Fox2 colleagues Charles Jaco (though most of the anti-Jaco criticisms are due to ideological reasons) and Angie Mock (for no discernible reason whatsoever) look like high school clique-level arguments in comparison.

Ah, social media like FB and Twitter where people throw rocks and then express dismay when the target says 'knock it off'. RVT might want to read Strauss' twitter comment or even comments on STL today for some context.

Chris is actually a "real Meteorologist" as opposed to the legend in his own mind Dave Murray, How do I know Chris is the real deal? He's an Air Force Reservist Meteorologist.  If weather was an exact science, we'd hire Monkeys to do the job.
