Record-shattering Snowfall on the Way-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
Meteorologists predict record-shattering snowfall across much of the country earlier in the year than ever reported before.
This eRumor’s claims that the winter of 2014 will bring record-shattering snowfall early in the season is nothing but bluster.
The satirical website Empire News published the phony report on September 6, 2014, and it quickly made its way around the Web.
The actual outlook for the winter of 2014 is much more temperate, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center.
