Mike Hoffman is the former 16 First Alert Chief Meteorologist of 27 years. Recently retired, he had enough time to sit down with us and discuss chaos as it relates to the weather. Hoffman recalls his years at Purdue, learning about the delay between performing calculations for upcoming weather with a computer model and using the results of those calculations to actually make weather predictions. While computer models today are much better than they used to be, Hoffman comments on the importance of using experience and intuition to determine how correct a computer model might be.
