Our Guest WeatherBrain for this episode is Todd Lericos, the Meteorologist-in-Charge (MIC) of the National Weather Service (NWS) Office in Las Vegas, NV, a position he has held since November, 2012. Todd grew up in Southwest Florida and began his career in meteorology by joining the Air Force in 1991 as a Weather Observer. His first assignment was Homestead AFB, arriving just eight months before Hurricane Andrew hit the base in August, 1992. A passion for weather forecasting in high impact situations was instilled in Todd by that event and he later deployed all over the world to provide weather forecast support to various military operations. This included a deployment to Haiti in 1994 for Operation Uphold Democracy and an assignment to the Middle East to support Operation Southern Watch in 1995.
