Harvey Leonard does the weather

An old tradition among Jewish reporters is to take shifts on Christmas Eve and Christmas day so that their Christian co-workers can take the time off. Harvey Leonard came out of retirement tonight to give one of his former weather colleagues time off.

H/t Monica.

Harvey and Mike's Blizzard Warning forecast

Leonard and Mike Wankum forecast the first of the 2015 blizzards.

WCVB reports that Harvey Leonard is retiring from daily forecasting on May 25, but that this fall he will become the station's chief meteorologist emeritus, in which he will come back on air for severe-weather and climate coverage. Read more.

Harvey Leonard with chart showing 230 inches of snow in North Reading

BOSRocks forwards this screen capture of Harvey Leonard and some snow totals tonight. Why, that's nearly 26 on the Pete Bouchard meter.

Best weather-number video ever.

Why yes, and when that somebody is our own Harvey Leonard, we begin to think about checking the breadbox and refrigerator. But before we clear space in the trunk for all that extra milk, he first cautions:

With regards to that next storm (middle of next week), parts of New England could see snow..too early to say for sure.

Harvey Leonard (yes, that Harvey Leonard) tweets:

Our younger daughter is married & lives in NY. Her husband is a Giants fan, but she is on her way here to root for Pats.

Harv is also predicting a 30-24 Patriots win. Don't scoff - this is the man who correctly predicted the Blizzard of '78. Going even farther back, J.L. Bell shows us that Samuel Adams was a prescient man.

While Harvey Leonard was only calling for 6-10 inches on Wednesday in tonight's forecast, Pete Bouchard was telling us could get up to 15 inches: "Wow! We're going to get hit pretty hard on the South Shore!" he said - adding Boston is also in that big band.

Harv did get points, however, for mentioning the Blizzard of '78, although he was referring to the Washington storm the other day. Pete, meanwhile, was pooh-poohing the 6,000-person snowball fight in DC: "You won't see us calling it 'Snowmageddon,' he said.

We went to French Toast Code Orange earlier this afternoon based on this forecast. And now Harv confirms we were right to panic: Look, he's posted his dread three exclamation points of wintry doom!!! So you know we're in for a rough weekend.

Steve Nadis objects to Harvey Leonard trying to whip us into a weather frenzy by showing a temperature map that extends all the way to the North Pole.

Were those tears in Harv's eyes last night as he explained how the jet stream is keeping all the cold air away from us? Looked like the poor boy was just barely holding it together - dammit, if we don't get a good old-fashioned Nor'easter soon, his head will just explode (let's all get together and send him some weather love, shall we?).
