If you've lived in Mobile, Alabama for any length of time, you know how unpredictable the weather can be. One day you're tanning on the beach and the next you're boarding up your windows in preparation for an approaching hurricane. If there's one man who has been able to forecast lower Alabama's weather with an unparalleled level of accuracy, it is Mr. John Edd Thompson. While many longtime Mobilians know him as the former Chief Meteorologist for WALA local FOX10 News, most are unaware of his involvement in the music and movie industry. I enjoyed interviewing John Edd for this Mobile Bay magazine Spotlight column.
