Behind the Front: Predicting an active hurricane season

Behind the Front: Predicting an active hurricane season
WBRC First Alert Chief Meteorologist, J-P Dice, is going beyond the forecast. He sits down with weekly guests to chat about a range of weather topics.

How do you plan for a hurricane? J-P Dice speaks with David Bernard, Chief Meteorologist for FOX 8 New Orleans, on forecasting tropical weather, the frustrations of inaccurate reports on social media, and the job of "explaining uncertainty" to viewers.

J-P and David also discuss covering severe weather in both Miami and New Orleans, and how far technology has come in helping to prepare for the unpredictable nature of hurricanes.
