My broadcast weather forecastingÂ careerÂ began at local NBC affiliate WFLA TV 8 in Tampa, Florida in 1974. These were character building years wherecomputersÂ were basically nonexistent in the weather office and we received all raw meteorological forecast guidance via facsimile machine from the National Weather Service. It was a matter of analyzing and drawing weatherÂ mapsÂ by hand for display on camera and use of crude black and whiteÂ satelliteÂ and radar images.
