Behind the Front: Snow in Alabama
Episode #34: J-P and Wes talk forecasting winter weather.

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The fury of flurries – when it comes to snow in the forecast, it seems like there is no middle ground. Either the event falls apart or we get hit with a winter wonderland. But J-P Dice and guest, Wes Wyatt, explain why it’s not snow that worries them, it’s ice. Plus, how something like “Snowmageddon” can completely shut down a city.

“Never say never in Alabama when it comes to weather.”

And after the break, Wes and J-P talk the day-to-day responsibilities of working on the First Alert Weather Team.
