Weather legend...

I have mentioned people that have contributed greatly to the meteorological/weather community here before. Today I will mention Roy Leep, who worked for WTVT in Tampa, Florida from 1957 through 1997. I never had the opportunity to watch Mr. Leep do the weather, but he was interviewed recently on the weatherbrains.com netcast. If you are interested in hearing not only his story, but learning about the evolution of weather coverage, I highly recommend listening. There are also a couple of cool pages here and here about Mr. Leep and his history of forecasting during a time when the science of meteorology advanced exponentially.
