BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - It’s the peak of hurricane season, and storms like Dorian have everyone watching the weather.

WBRC meteorologists J-P Dice and Wes Wyatt sit down to discuss how reading the data can be a close a call and how far technique has come in helping forecast a storm hundreds of miles over the ocean. But even with all the bells and whistles, sometimes simply taking a look outside can get you pretty far.
