Overly Familiar Software

My weather bug now has a popup for today's weather than says, "A thunderstorm on the prowl." "On the prowl?" Unless this is a term of art with which I'm unfamiliar, I'm disappointed. I like to keep my relationship with my software formal.

They are obviously using personnel from our Meteorology Office, who have started to use terms like 'clouds will be bubbling up' or 'fog will be lapping in' in the daily weather forecasts and rain never falls now, it 'pulses'
