Peterborough Weather Nerd Jay Scotland Rocks

We're big fans of CHEX Newswatch weather anchor Jay Scotland, who makes local forecasts fun and educational. Jay is entertaining, self-deprecating and informative all at once, and he's obviously passionate about his work. And crafty. On his TheWeatherNerd's channel on YouTube, his latest video (see below) teaches us about downbursts using flour, water and toothpicks. You can also follow him on his blog and get his regular weather updates on Twitter @jayscotland.
