Not only has the equipment changed over the years...

Tims posting of old weather footage from TV made me dig out one of my old tv weather tapes. Take a look at the hair on Cantore. :lol:

Yeah dude, that looks just like Sylvester Stallone, LOL. Also, check out how awsome the fronts look on the map.
 
I think Jim lost a lot of hair due to the constant 180 mph winds he always seems to find at any hurricane!!!

I'll bet he wishes they would have turned those off-camera fans down to a low setting now:)

1987 it was. Blizzard warnings for us here in SE Wisconsin. Good job Tim.

From the NWS:

17) December 14-15, 1987 - South half - Blizzard (gusts to 73 mph) - 10 to 17 inches of snow. Madison and Milwaukee had 13 inches.

Nice... Good thing they didn't have Storm Stories back then, or I'd bet that's what we would have had a screen cap of.

That was an impressive system...also responsible for the West Memphis Ar F3 and for us in Norman, the deflector shields were down, as we got a nice thundersnow event out of it. Around 5-7" if I recall. I remember walking to class at OU in heavy snow when suddenly a bright flash of lightning followed by an immediate although muffled clap of thunder scared the crap out of me. Those were the days.

Man... reading that brings back SOO many memories. West Memphis was my home town growing up, and I remember the night of Dec 13th very clearly. I saw the f3 just two blocks south of my house when it was backlit by lightning, and heard its amazing roar.

Was 18 then and it left me terrified of severe weather for a few years, lol. I then turned it around in my later 20s and started chasing....

I rarely hear anyone else mention that system Rob.... nice info there

Nice pics! Very interesting. That's the first time I've seen a weathermap from that day since that day. Wow that was a big storm!!


I can still hear the old Weather Channel theme song....."The Weather Channel, for everything you do."

They used to play that theme song all the time.
