Weather Secrets Revealed Today at 5 p.m.
April 18th, 2012 at 7:00 am by Jacquie Walker under 4 Warn Weather, Jacquie Walker's Newsroom Notebook
You’ll see it first on News 4 at 5. For weeks now, our 4Warn meteorologists Don Paul, Mike Cejka, Amelia Segal and Bryan Shaw have been trapped in the weather office working on a secret project! Actually they’ve been training on a new and complex package of weather graphics that will change dramatically the way they tell the weather story each day.
Even though he works until midnight, Chief Meteorologist Don Paul has been coming in at 9:30am each day this week to prepare for News 4's conversion to a new computer system for displaying weather graphics. Keith Cavey, from Weather Central in Madison, Wisconsin, is a meteorologist who trains other meteorologists around the country on the 'Fusion' system.
Chief Meteorologist Don Paul and Weather Central trainer Keith Cavey tell me the 'Fusion' system will provide News 4 viewers with the most advanced weather graphics in Western New York. It has the ability to show viewers the weather where they live.
Meteorologist Bryan Shaw has spent many, many days working to convert the Fusion graphics into appropriate use for Western New York weather. We'll all see it tonight at 5 for the first time with Meteorologist Don Paul. I don't mind telling you, he's a little nervous about this, but we are cheering him on!
