I asked Candice King, Chief Meteorologist at WTVO-TV, whether there's enough education when it comes to severe weather.

Candice King, meteorologist with the WTVO Morning News Team in Rockford, Ill., presents an educational seminar at the Northern Illinois Farm Show. DEKALB, Ill. - Extreme weather events had a significant impact during 2012.
"There were 11 $1 billion disasters last year," reported Candice King, meteorologist with the WTVO Morning News Team in Rockford.
"It started in March with tornadoes, then there was the extreme heat and wildfires in the West during the summer and fall, Hurricane Isaac, Superstorm Sandy and also the drought," recalled King during an educational seminar at the Northern Illinois Farm Show. "And we're still continuing with the drought and heat - December was 8 degrees above average."
During 2012, King said, thousands of records for high temperatures were broken across the U.S.
"Weather often repeats itself. It takes a while to break the cycle and pattern," she said.
"There are tons of forecast models we look at every day to put a forecast together," King noted.
For the surface analysis, King said she looks to see where the high and low pressure systems are located and where the cold and warm fronts are positioned and at the atmosphere thickness lines. At 3,000 feet, she also looks for the high and low pressure systems and the cold and warm fronts.
"The temperatures are critical in determining where we have warm air advection, which helps to determine the temperatures at the surface," she added.
"For the 18,000-feet level, low pressure systems in the summertime can enhance a severe weather front and in the wintertime can enhance snowfall," the meteorologist said.
This level is critical for temperatures in the summertime, King noted.
"Because if the temperature inside the low pressure system is really cold, that enhances the instability in the atmosphere and we can get hail or cold air funnels," she said.
The Artic Oscillation and the North Atlantic Oscillation are two models used by forecasters.
"The oscillations are differences in pressure in the mid latitudes of the atmosphere, and as those change and shift, that affects our weather," King explained.
"If sea surface temperatures are going up over a three- to four-month period, it's an El Niño event," King said. "And if sea temperatures are going down for a three- to four-month period it's a La Niña pattern."
"We were transitioning this past spring, summer and fall out of a La Niña pattern to a more El Niño pattern, where the sea surface temperatures were beginning to warm," she added.
According to the Climate Prediction Center, King said, for the remainder of the winter and going into spring, there is no indication that the water near the equator will warm or cool down.
"So we'll stay in the neutral phase," she said.

Candice KingWeekend Meteorologist
Candice grew up in Freeport so she is no stranger to northern Illinois.After graduating high school, she attended Northern Illinois University where she received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Meteorology.After graduating she continued her education and received her GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Certificate the following year.
Candice has always been interested in meteorology ever since she was a little girl."I wanted to know why on certain days it rained and stormed and why the next day it didn't.�Knowing that a lot of math and science were involved didn't bother her because those were her favorite subjects in school.
Candice started as an intern at WREX in the summer of 2004 and then became the weekend meteorologist in June of 2005.
When Candice is not working, she likes to spend her spare time reading, tumbling and cheering on the Duke Blue Devils with her husband Tim.
Also at the show, Candice ..., 7 Jan 2015 [cached]
Also at the show, Candice King, chief meteorologist with WTVO-TV in Rockford, discussed how weather affects agriculture. Going through the series of slideshows that demonstrated weather patterns, King provided public with a glimpse into this years atmospheric conditions.
She said statewide, precipitation was at 1.9 inches a month, or 8 tenths of an inch below normal last December, while the average temperature was 33.4 degrees, which is 2.5 degrees above normal.
Although she wasnt able to predict the exact amount of precipitation for the upcoming months, she said theres going to be a lot of variability.
I dont think going into the spring and summertime its going to be as cool as what this past summer was, she said, but I dont think we are going to see a whole lot of rain, either.
