After a crazy week of weather we are finally seeing a nice change. It is cold air, espcially compared to what we were dealt earlier this week, but its seasonal so overall we can not complain! I wanted to direct you to both Justin and Brians blogs. After being out of the office for a few days I looked over what they wrote to just see what has been happening and really enjoyed looking at both of their.
One question we recieved during the early part of the week when we were talking about the storm that made history for the US was how can we compare it to a hurricane. Brian did a GREAT job of explaining this. Kudos to him! It is a complicated subject when explaining to ametuers and he nailed it.
Justin also blogged yesterday about something I found super interesting. He talked about a simple forecast compared to a detailed. As he also wrote our job has become alot more about broadcasting then forecasting. I think he did a real good job of showing the changes and the good/bad consequences.
Enough about that! I wanted to let everyone know that I am going to be doing a new task here at Newsline 9. I will be venturing out into the wilderness to give our outdoors and enviromental stories. If you have any ideas or suggestions on what I should cover make sure you send them my way. I can’t wait to showcase what I have been working on. Here is just a few pics I took up north that show a few areas I will be working on:
Last but not least! Halloween is looking spoooktacular! We will see temps in the mid 40′s with plenty of sunshine. Winds will be light so shouldn’t add much of a chill to the air. Overall the next week is looking very quiet. I hope everyone has a BOOOOtiful and Happy Halloween! Meteorologist Kristen Connolly
