He also knows about college, and the cost of higher education.
Claire is finishing her senior year of high school, so prospective colleges have been “a big topic in our household while she is narrowing her choices,” Holcomb told BuzzFeed News.
Holcomb said he felt “really good” about his forecast predictions on air, as he used different data and maps that indicated snow.
“I showed the computer models with the scenarios, and narrowed down my own ‘hand drawn’ map of accumulation totals,” he said. “I was specific about when it would move in, when it would move out and how much snow each area would get.”
Holcomb said his family and social media followers enjoy his banter, so he shared the texts online.
“They often respond more to those type of posts than my posts about actual weather events,” he said.
However, Holcomb will admit that he wasn’t able to accurately predict the amount of snow. “It didn’t snow as much as her dad said it would,” he said.
But we’re happy to report Claire will still most likely have some help from her dad for college tuition.
