"Hail at 3:33 PM bewteen 28th and 33rd Streets"

The frequent weather forecast "Rain after midnight" has always amused me. How does the rain know when it's midnight -- clocks in church steeples perhaps?

We had snow over the weekend. The forecast was for snow "north of I-44 in Missouri and I-70 in Illinois." How does snow know where an Interstate is, and why would it care?

It was weird on Saturday, Nicole and I drove to Springfield, and it literally looked much icier on the south side of I-44 than the north side.
St. Louis regional forecast only goes as far down I-44 as Rolla -- I think Fort Leonard Wood is in the Springfield TV market and weather region.
