‘Punch Through the Cap’: Meteorologist Says Goodbye to WFAA and Hello to Replacement

WFAA weekend meteorologist Steve McCauley had a little fun signing off from the Dallas-Fort Worth ABC affiliate Sunday night while introducing viewers to his replacement, Ashton Altieri.

The station rolled a clip of McCauley educating Altieri about what it’s like to forecast weather in Texas. “First of all, we actually do have weather here,” McCauley told Altieri who last worked at KXTV in Sacramento, CA. “It does rain. It hails. It tornadoes. It blizzards. It ice storms. It does everything here in Texas. So there are a few things you may want to learn.”

McCauley then taught Altieri about weather phenomenon we won’t even try to explain here like the “McFarland signature,” how to “punch through the cap,” and how keeping an eye on the Sea of Japan can predict future Texas weather. Read more

KUSA Anchor Kyle Dyer Can’t Hold In Her Sneeze

It happens to everyone — allergy seasons change, studios are dusty, and sometimes, you just can’t hold a sneeze in. Kyle Dyer, a veteran Denver anchor who has been with NBC affiliate KUSA since 1996, was on the air Friday morning when the urge to sneeze struck her. She tried to hold it in until after she and co-anchor Gregg Moss tossed to meteorologist Ashton Altieri, but she was unsuccessful, prompting Moss to tell her, “I thought you were going to attack me!” (Watch the video, above.)

Earlier this week, we told you about the relationship between local news and viral videos. KUSA shared this video on their website, calling it a “classic sneeze” and a “golden 9NEWS blooper caught on camera.” [h/t NewsBlues]
