StormTRACKER Meteorologist John Wheeler discusses a somewhat warmer winter weather pattern.
“We’ve been really fortunate as far as equipment goes. Things break when it gets cold. The guys have been really good about being careful.”
All that is required is a subtle rising motion in the air or a subtle cooling of the air at cloud level.
