The Week in Review: Weather Special

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, three local weather experts discuss Chicago’s 2012 weather trends: a mild winter, a spring heat wave, and a hot, dry summer. They explain their love of weather and their career paths. Plus, we hear what it takes to put together a TV forecast, the art of chatting with news anchors, and what it feels like when viewers recognize them on the street.

Guests:
- Phil Schwarz, ABC-7 Meteorologist
