New Yourcast Feature

The Yourcast weather app is now offering specific weather and forecast information for six sub-regions within our area.  With this new upgrade, you can choose whichever of these six regions is closest to you, and you will get the forecast for your specific region made by our WDAY/WDAZ forecast team of John Wheeler, Aaron White, Rebecca Lebak, and Kellen Peters.  To get the Yopurcast app, go to the app store on your Apple or Android mobile device and search for "yourcast."  If you've already got Yourcast on your device, youcan find the upgrade on the app store.  Yourcast offers many useful features including a live stream of severe weather coverage, regularly updated forecasts and webcasts, local weather pics, road conditions, school announcements, and more.  There is even a Twitter feed of local and regional weather information even if you aren't on Twitter.     Meteorologist John Wheeler

John Wheeler

John was born in Baton Rouge, LA, and grew up near Birmingham, Alabama. As a teenager, his family moved to Madison, Wisconsin, and later to a small town in northeast Iowa. John traces his early interest in weather to the difference in climate between Alabama and Wisconsin. He is a graduate of Iowa State University with a degree in meteorology. Like any meteorologist, John is intrigued by extremes of weather, especially arctic air outbreaks and winter storms.  John has been known to say he prefers his summers to be hot but in winter, he prefers the cold.  When away from work, John enjoys long-distance running and reading.  John has been a meteorologist at WDAY since May of 1985.
