Charlotte meteorologists share their winter predictions, how they forecast the weather and more
Thursday, Dec. 9, 2021
Today, we're talking about the weather. It's a perennial topic around the watercooler and grocery store checkout lines everywhere. It's something we all have in common.
Three of Charlotte’s leading meteorologists join us to talk about what they do. When there’s severe weather or even the possibility of snow, we turn to them to know what to expect. And in an emergency, the information they provide can save lives. So, we’ll sprinkle them with some questions.
How do they put together a forecast? How do they make winter weather predictions? What might this winter bring? Why does Charlotte go so bonkers over snow anyway?
We talk meteorology, some of the misconceptions of the job, the need for more sophisticated radar here, just how accurate they are and more.
