Weather War? Jerry Taft Takes A Twitter Swipe At Brant Miller
By John Dodge
CHICAGO (CBS) — Has the sleeping bear awoken?
While on vacation, ABC 7’s weather front man Jerry Taft took to Twitter to take a little shot at a wildly inaccurate snow forecast by rival Brant Miller over at NBC 5.
Traditionally, ABC 7 has played it conservatively on Twitter, making the online snark (joke?) highly out of character.
Miller has yet to respond directly on Twitter. His last tweet from this morning was a straight-forward forecast and recap on the snowfall.
Light snow showers ending, windy, near 30, becoming partly sunny. Totals have been 1-7", cold, near 12 tonight. My new forecast at 4:30p—

The CBS 2 team forecast 4 to 8 inches for Chicago. Officially, O’Hare got a bit less than four inches, while totals of 4 to 6 inches were common in many suburbs and Northwest Indiana.
