He should be fired. We've had too many seasons of failure with this guy.

When is wral going to realize he isn't performing and get an up and coming mid major weatherman? I heard Dayton, ohio had a up and coming star meteorologist they could get.

I'm sure he and other meteorologists would rather be pessimistic and wrong than optimistic and wrong. I'd rather be blamed for everyone buying too much milk than thousands of car accidents.

Here's the real problem:

News meteorologists don't just say stuff like: based on the data and models it looks like we might get snow, maybe nothing maybe up to 10 inches. Instead they have to show you all the fronts and pressure systems, all the jet streams and upper/lower level disturbances, and so on. Then at the end of all that finally say this or that. In this case, as I recall, indicated that we would get four inches (very conservative) to 12 inches.

If someone asks me something at work and give the 15 minutes of backstory and an opinion and I'm still (mostly) wrong I would fully expect some negative feedback.

is your job based on data so large and unpredictable that at this point in time humans do not have good enough or reliable enough technology to predict what you do?

Meterologists are only as good as their models. Certainly there are some you can trust better than others, but when the model consensus points one way, you tend to follow it and report on it. And models are still not as good as we'd like them to be. It is what it is.

The model was fundamentally right... what as the shift, like 20-30 miles? All things considered this is really amazing.

I heard he was doing weather experiments on people and posting videos of it on the dark web. He got caught and they're having him lay low till the heat dies down.

Also heard the rumor this weekend that he likes the libations. Not sure if it's a medical related reason or maybe rehab?

^^^That posting is for Nate Johnson. He did weekend weather and basically ran the meteorology department at WRAL. He, like Monica Laliberte, contributed much more behind the scenes but sometimes both are in front of the camera. But that is what they are replacing, not Greg.

"I'm back! Getting ready right now to be doing what I love: the weather at 5PM and 6PM! It has been quite a while since we last laid eyes on each other. In fact the last time I was on the air was Groundhog Day Eve, more commonly known as February 1! Before I go any further, to say that I was overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, concern, thoughts, prayers, cards and letters would be the understatement of the century. When I arrived here in June of 1981, I truly had no idea the goldmine I was walking into. How do I define that goldmine? A couple of different ways. First, there is no better company in the world to work for than Capitol Broadcasting-period, end of discussion. If I can attach one word to my employer, it is integrity with a capital I. And then there’s all of you that have been so supportive of me for almost 37 years. And you’re under no obligation to be nice to me. You’re nice to me because y’all are just flat out nice people, and I will forever be grateful to my employer as well as all of you for making North Carolina my true home. I am rested and ready to get back at it. Maybe I can even harness a few snow flakes this weekend! So it’s time to get back on the horse, and not be saddled by anything but positive thoughts. .. and I’ll prove that by pulling in the rains this weekend. As Jackie Gleason once said, “And Away We Go!”"

O'Fishel sighting confirmed. Just had a Greg Fishel sighting in Raleigh. Saw him walking to his car and he had his foot in a medical boot. So looks like it was some sort of foot surgery, which would keep a meteorologist from standing in front of the green screen.

Maybe he broke his foot partying too hard and had to go to rehab for that.
