Minneapolis-St. Paul CBS owned station WCCO is going old school with its new rooftop sign called the Weather Watcher that that changes colors depending to the weather.
According to the station, “Red means it’ll get warmer. Blue, cooler. White signals no change, and green means snow or rain.”
The Weather Watcher is part of a larger rooftop weather area featuring a full outdoor kitchen, a lawn and artwork made by artists using local materials.
“In Minnesota, our lives revolve around the weather and WCCO-TV is proud to present this Minneapolis landmark and important public service,” Brien Kennedy, WCCO-TV’s vice president and general manager said in a statement.
According to the Pioneer Press, the Weather Watcher is a reminder of the area’s past. “It’s a nod to the iconic Weatherball that was perched on top of the Northwestern National Bank building in downtown Minneapolis for more than 30 years before a fire destroyed the building on Thanksgiving Day in 1982.” Read more
