to deliver your weather
Scroll down for details of the special Colorado meeting between Mr. Foot and Stormchaser Vince Webb, and a new video to be posted tonight where we turned the camera on the interviewer.
5:50 PM EST Sunday 2/20/2011
FORECASTERS ON THE MOVE Storm Chaser Vincent Webb, a senior from Brandon High School in Central Mississippi and member of our Southeast Team, interviewed two famed figures in the weather forecasting universe while attending the 2011 National Storm Chasers Convention in Denver, CO. The first video to is with Meteorologist Mike Bettes of The Weather Channel, and the next features the reknowned Extreme Storm Chaser Reed Trimmer. A few minutes after this shot, Mr. Trimmer went on to speak to the entire convention hall, and even referenced Vince in his talk. Be sure to watch right to the end for a funny signoff.
Congrats Stormchaser Webb for these nicely done interviews! We hope you all enjoy these historical firsts for our team, courtesy of a hard-working high school student willing to do what it takes to help advance the importance of
science education. Yet another example of our team philosophy: If given the chance, students show you they are much more capable than most people expect.
WEATHER BY WORKING TOGETHER Links in the section above lead you to
facebook forecast centers for some regions and main site zones for others. In the coming days and weeks, you will notice an expansion of forecasting content starting to appear on this page.
This improvement will include the posting of individual zones for all our regional forecast teams currently reporting in facebook centers. We hear the plea of teachers and students whom wish to access our pages while in class, but of course are unable if the links direct to facebook instead of a main site zone. By weeks' end, clicking those links will take you first to a zone on this page, with the facebook link embedded within that.
In addition, we will make layout changes in order to improve access in those school systems where the site is not appearing correctly due to screen resolution differences. Thanks to all our loyal readers across the U.S. and in many countries for supporting the work of these inspiring students as they continue to innovate the forecasting of weather and climate...right here on Foot's Forecast.
MULTI-STATE MEETING. Sunday afternoon under a wildly windy sky in the "Mile-High City," Vince Webb and Mr. Foot carved time from their cross-country commute to enjoy a brief lunch in Denver following Vince's attendance to the Storm Chasers Convention. Please check back later this evening as a special interview was recorded of the interviewer. That's right, this time we turned the camera on him! You'll get to hear some inspiring stories of his Yazoo City EF-4 tornado chase last April, how it felt to interview a TV meteorologist and much more.
A toast to our hard-working multi-state forecast team!
