AtmoLife’s Hype Prediction of the Week is another segment of our Weekly Siren Test in which we mock the “meteorologists” who post sensationalist forecasts. Sometimes these predictions in the upper echelon of mockability are difficult to discover, as they often dwell in the darker corners of the internet. For this reason, we are asking all of you, dear readers, to notify us when you see such forecasts, and if we deem the forecast you found to indeed be the most hyped, we will use it as our HPotW and award your school with 1 AtmoCup bonus point.

For this week specifically, I know it’s only Friday, but I have a hard time seeing ol’ Cat 5 Lucifer being topped by Tuesday morning. Assuming nobody in our profession outshits this forecast (Seriously, read the link. You’ll have a good belly laugh.), Corey’s school will be awarded with 1 AtmoCup point, which will show up in next week’s standings.

[IMPORTANT DISTINCTION: In case it wasn’t obvious, Corey is the one who found this forecast, not the one who made it. We won’t award you points for your own shitty forecasts, so don’t try it at home.]
