The secrets of “The Weather Man”

“I wish I could be wrong 50% of the time and still keep my job.” If television meteorologists had a nickel for every time they heard that…well, they wouldn’t need to work.

That’s the perception. Now for the real talk.

ABC27 meteorologists Brett Thackara and Ryan Coyle join Kendra Nichols, Dennis Owens, and Amanda St. Hilaire in this week’s episode of On Deadline to answer your questions. How do meteorologists come up with their forecasts? Why do those forecasts sometimes change? What happens when people on a TV weather team disagree? Does Brett really think his jokes are funny?
