The ratings underscores the must-have nature of The Weather Channel during severe weather, as there were 16 named winter storms, including Frona, Gorgon, Hektor, Iola, Juno, Kari, Linus, Marcus, Neptune, Octavia, Pandora, Quantum, Remus, Sparta, Thor and Ultima, as well as other severe weather events between January-March 2015.

"It's clear that event programming drives viewership," said David Clark, president, The Weather Channel network. "That's true for sports, music, entertainment, and even weather, although our events are very different. For The Weather Channel, severe weather creates those must-watch moments. We have found that people come in droves at those times, not only to watch for their own safety and preparedness, but people also tune in for that shared experience. The past few months have been chock full of severe weather events, and in those times, viewers knew where to turn."
