 The Weather Channel to Air “2012: A Year Out of Season”

Year-end special looking back at the extreme weather events that defined 2012 premieres Friday, Dec. 28



“2012: A Year Out of Season” explores the brutal weather that ravaged the United States and defined 2012. A wide range of extreme conditions ruled the year, beginning with an unseasonably warm “winter-less” winter, and a series of deadly tornado outbreaks that began before the onset of the traditional “tornado season.” Months of record heat followed, leading to a drought so devastating it stirred comparisons to the 1930’s historic Dust Bowl. Nine million acres of land were scorched during a near-record wildfire season. Hurricane Isaac battered the Gulf Coast in late summer, then Superstorm Sandy, the catastrophic megastorm comprised of a hurricane, nor’easter and winter storm, brought our country’s most populous region to its knees. This one-hour special recounts the year’s many defining weather events and looks ahead to what may be in store in 2013.
