HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Weather coverage has been crucially important to Tennessee Valley residents.
With each dangerous storm that crosses our path, we are reminded again and again how critical it is to have a team of meteorologists who know the area and can help keep you safe.
In 2004, as part of our station's 50th Anniversary celebration, we produced an hour-long special about WAFF's weather coverage in the Tennessee Valley over the years.
Brad Travis hosted the special as well as a panel discussion with former meteorologists and weather presenters from the station's history - Bob Baron, John Malone, Jay Prater, Glenn Bracken and Jerral Miller.
Together, they discussed the major weather events that changed the landscape of North Alabama and the lives of its residents.
Brad also gave us more insight into the then state-of-the-art technology employed by the station at the time.
That, combined with our weather radio programming efforts and Be Prepared series helps give you the best possible information so you can stay alert and stay ready for what the winds may bring.
