Gary Amble, a meteorologist for KCTV 5, is proud to call Shawnee home.
Gary Amble, a meteorologist for KCTV 5, is proud to call Shawnee home. Fresh from Des Moines, Amble and his wife settled down in Shawnee in 1994 because they wanted their children to be educated in the Shawnee Mission School District. Plus, they fell in love with the city's small-town vibe. Amble says the move is one of the best decisions he's ever made. "Not to say that other communities aren't great, but Shawnee is a very comfortable town," he said. And when Amble goes to work every week, it's not just to recite the temperature on television. He spends half his time working with very advanced technological equipment to determine an accurate forecast for the Kansas City area. "It's all mathematics when you describe the atmosphere, it gets pretty complicated," said Amble, who graduated with a degree in atmospheric science from the University of Kansas in 1987. "It involves a lot of physics too. There's an art to forecasting because you have to study data and use your experience and intuition to determine accuracy." While it's exciting to get dressed up and talk in front of a camera, Amble said one of his favorite aspects of the job is running into viewers outside the television station. Whether he's at the grocery store, or enjoying dinner with his wife, he often gets approached by viewers who want to say hi, or even want to ask about the weather. He doesn't mind at all. "I enjoy meeting people because those are the ones I'm talking to when I look in the camera," he said.
