Happy National Weatherperson's Day!


by Shakara Robinson

MILWAUKEE -- February 5 is National Weatherperson's Day, a chance to thank our loyal weather men and women for their hard work and long hours in the weather center tracking severe storms and wicked conditions.

CBS 58's Lance Hill sat down with Rusty Kapela, a three decade veteran of meteorology for the National Weather Service, to discuss what goes into the planning ahead of big storms and some things about Wisconsin's weather that makes it unique. 

Happy National Westherperson's Day to our First Alert Meteorologists Lance Hill, Mark McGinnis and Michael Schlesinger!
