While I was gone, it was pretty cool in the Louisville area. The highest temperature we've had this July was 89 degrees. Not having any 90's in July is very rare and we may even break a record with that if things stay cool through the end of the month.
Looks like the rest of this month will remain below normal according to the Climate Prediction Center's latest forecast:
On to other news... Tom Wills retirement at WAVE TV is coming at the end of July. He will be greatly missed in the Louisville community and I'm sure it will be nice for him to retire after so many years at WAVE. The search for a replacement meteorologist is on at WAVE, especially after posting the position as being available on Raycom's (parent company of WAVE) website:
WAVE 3-TV, the NBC in Louisville Kentucky (DMA 50) is looking for an experienced meteorologist to join our award-winning weather team. We take pride in being the market leader for severe weather coverage with an aggressive team of veterans who know how to showcase technology, own breaking weather coverage, and execute brand in their presentation. Primary shift is for the weekday 2-hour morning and 1-hour Noon newscasts, while also servicing our radio partnerships with live and taped weather updates, and recording weather segments for our digital channels during the scheduled shifts.
It'll be interesting to see who they pick. Broadcast meteorology job openings in Louisville are few and far between, so this is certainly a big opportunity for someone out there!
