WPXI Weather Man Owns Twitter Troll

Do not mess with Channel 11 meteorologist Scott Harbaugh.



 

This is just delightful and the perfect way to start our weekend. Yesterday, WPXI-TV meteorologist Scott Harbaugh responded to a routine question about incoming rain with an honest answer. When the dissatisfied Twitter troll responded back with foul language, Harbaugh lit him up with class.
 


 

Cold-blooded.

Harbaugh is an essential follow on Twitter. He may even follow you back.



Here’s Harbaugh voluntarily locking himself in a car on a hot day in the name of, um ... science?
