NWA Conference Day ThreeOctober 15th, 2012 at 5:26 pm by Jason Smith under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather
Our third day at the conference focused again on weather system training from Weather Central. We discussed the availability of new products due and also learned about changes in weather data within the last year. This presentation was very technical, but also very helpful in improving daily workflow!
After lunch, I got a chance to see what is available in terms of HD live cameras. Cell phone and wi-fi technology have helped to make establishing a live camera feed much easier form remote locations.
Finally, we had an opportunity to participate in a one-on-one session. Most of my questions involved learning more about the latest software platform “Fusion”. I also got some tips on implemented daily hour-by-hour forecasts to be included in my presentation in the near future.
And for dinner, I followed Madison native and Studio Ten host Joe Emer’s advice. It was a fine meal of Green Bay Chili topped with onions, cheese and sour cream. As a side dish, I sample a Wisconsin favorite: Fried Beer Battered Cheese Curds!
