End of an era in Des Moines

Des Moines, Iowa is about to lose its longest-running weather forecaster. For the better part of 50 years, KCCI-TV has had a weather beacon on top of their broadcast tower. When the lights were green, it meant that no change in weather was foreseen. When the lights were red, warmer weather was ahead. And when the weather lights were white, colder weather was in sight.

But because of costs and the rising popularity of weather apps on mobile phones, the lights were old technology. Beginning tomorrow, KCCI’s weather beacon will be turned off for the last time. Click on the image to go to KCCI.com to watch video. -Eric
