National Weather Service La Crosse meteorologist Todd Shea in the WIZM studio Tuesday for La Crosse Talk PM discussing the ever-more common weird weather, a first-ever February tornado, no snow and how the job has changed.

Shea has been doing weather in La Crosse since 1995 but he’s been in the business since 1988.

Part of what we talked about is the job itself, are there more or less people interested in the profession and how the profession has changed, even just in his time as a meteorologist.

We also talked the first-ever February tornado to happen in Wisconsin — there were two a few days ago — and if these weird weather phenomenon are becoming more common.  

Lastly we got into a discussion about weather versus climate and whose responsibility is it to look into each of those things.
