Arnold shares passion for weather with others

Shrewsbury – James Arnold has been a self-avowed weather geek for most of his life. "It first started in 1944 when I was a little boy in Worcester. The Great Atlantic Hurricane came through – I was just fascinated by what was happening outside my home," he recalled of that storm that killed 390 people. That interest eventually turned into a vocation that continued, first in college and then throughout his career. Arnold officially retired in 2001 but he still forecasts weather as a way to help local municipalities know what they are going to be up against. In a region that has been hit with all sorts of weather events in the last few years, including blizzards, ice storms, heat waves, and even a close call with tornadoes, that has kept him very busy.
