Take a few minutes to read this article! It’s a great write-up with three important points.
- The weather is becoming more extreme, whether it’s climate change or not…and whether we like it or not!
- Weather technology has greatly improved over the years, which has allowed our forecasting to greatly improve.
- This combination puts TV forecasters in a very important role.
Here’s the thing…I don’t feel like a hero and I don’t think most broadcast meteorologists do either. We are just following our passion…some may even go so far as to call us weather geeks (I’m ok with that by the way!) When we cover severe weather, we aren’t thinking…"I want to be a hero."
