Weather, Lightning & A Safe Summer with WBTV Meteorologist Al Conklin, are all topics that we can appreciate as Outdoor Guys & Gals. However, recent “Severe Weather” (learn here what that really means) sometimes means preparation & sometimes means being aware.
From a preparedness standpoint: Even in summer having a lightweight rain coat is appropriate. This one stuffs into itself, is small, lightweight & breathable. Great for travel (see Wimbledon Segment of the Carolina Outdoors)
Quick dry shorts for the lake, beach or for travel allow you to get wet, but then get dry.
Follow Al on Twitter or Facebook @alconklin & https://apps.apple.com/us/app/wbtv-first-alert-weather/id471314510 to keep up with up-to-the minute weather changes.
However, sometimes you just need to be aware. Lightning can come out of the blue (it has impacted Al’s family’s).
Plus, cars get incredibly hot during the summer & we should create something that aids us in always remembering especially to get children & pets out of a parked auto.
Lastly, learn where the nickname “Hurricane” Al Conklin comes.
