WDAF Meteorologist Karli Ritter Gets Creative After Weather Graphics Malfunction

Karli Ritter‘s computer crashed during Tuesday’s morning newscast on WDAF, forcing the meteorologist to get creative with her forecast.

“We’re having some computer issues, so we’re going to modify this forecast just a bit here,” Ritter said. “Nothing’s updated, nothing’s working. So I’m going to call in my assistants here.”

As Ritter continued with her forecast, Nick Vasos and Loren Halifax held up hand-drawn graphics to help the meteorologist out with her reporting. Ritter finished her report by holding up a hand-drawn graphic of the five-day forecast (pictured) to applause in the studio.
