  1. This is perhaps the ONLY thing I miss about working in TV news, even 2 1/2 years after leaving … There is always a meteorologist on staff, so when a forecast takes a dramatic turn like this, he/she comes down to the newsroom and starts shouting about it! At Q13, Walter Kelley (on the night shift) was great about this, as was morning meteorologist M.J. McDermott. In the post-TV life … I wouldn’t have known this was coming except for the fact that Cliff Mass tweeted Tuesday night that a storm was brewing!
