Weather Channel Releases List of 2014-2015 Winter Storm Names
The Weather Channel just released its annual list of winter storm names, and we’re sure Jimmy Kimmel can’t wait for the fourth storm of the season. Storms are given names in alphabetical order, and for 2014-2015, D stands for Damon.
Kimmel, of course, has a running gag that he hates Matt Damon, so you can bet that as soon as winter storm Damon attacks, Kimmel will be on it.
For the record, the Weather Channel attributes the name selection of Damon to greek mythology, not the Boston-bred actor. In the story of Damon and Pythias, Damon is known for his loyalty.
Other fun names on the list include Linus, Quantum, and Thor, so brace yourselves for jokes about Charlie Brown, 007, and the Avengers this winter.
The ‘W’ storm is still open to a public vote on Weather.com. You can vote for Warren, Wilda, Willie, Woden, or Wolf. For once, Republicans might vote for Warren so they can villainize her later when the time comes.
Check out the full list of storm names:
Bozeman (Not to be confused with 42 and Get On Up actor Chadwick Boseman)
Damon (A week’s worth of monologue jokes for Jimmy Kimmel)
Linus (At least one of your local news stations will run with this line: “This storm has blanketed the entire Northeast!”)
Neptune (Oyster? You wish.)
Quantum (of Solace)
Thor (Stop. Hammer time.)
W? (You vote.)
