You have been reading the work of tonight's Guest WeatherBrain for twenty years. He is not a sports columnist or book author. But we look forward to his latest releases with the same enthusiasm that some await the New York Times Best Seller list. You've heard of the Online Tornado FAQ. That's his. Tonight's Guest WeatherBrain is a lead forecaster with the Storm Prediction Center. Roger Edwards, welcome to the show. Roger Edwards is a meteorologist with the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK, specializing in forecasting and applied research related to severe storms and tornadoes. He has been with SPC and its predecessor, the Severe Local Storms Unit (SELS) in Kansas City, since April, 1993. Before that, Roger was a meteorologist at the National Hurricane Center in Miami. He began his career as a research aide and storm intercept field coordinator at the National Severe Storms Lab in Norman, while in undergraduate and graduate school at the University of Oklahoma. Roger was born and raised in Dallas, and of course, is a die-hard Cowboys fan. He lives in Norman with his wife, Elke; cat, Iniki; and his kids, David Andrew and Donna Camille (all named after hurricanes), who are already avid storm watchers.
