"I consider my role to be that of an interpreter.I learned to break the science and jargon down into what is relevant to people's lives.It's not about a 'vorticity maximum' - that just means the weather
is changing - and what the viewers need to know about this is, "bring an umbrella.Some good advice someone once gave me was - "explain the weather
as though you are talking to your mother." Goodloe
