CONIFER, Colo. (CBS4) – Most people with a fascination for the weather will tell you it started at an early age.

And that’s true for CBS4 Weather Watcher Bambi Moss, who says she got her love for the weather from her dad.

“My dad is a weather nut. He writes it down in a spiral notebook every single morning and night,” said Moss.

In fact her dad has weather records for Conifer that date back to 1965. Moss is now following in her father’s footsteps and keeping that tradition alive.

Since joining our CBS4 Weather Watcher program in the fall of 2014, Moss has noticed significant differences in the weather from communities that are relatively close to Conifer, including Bailey and Evergreen.

“As the crow flies we’re not that far apart, but geographically, we’re all in very different areas,” Moss explains.

Besides keeping weather records as a personal hobby, Moss says she enjoys being a CBS4 Weather Watcher.

“I like seeing what’s going on, what the amounts have been and what the temperatures are doing,” said Moss.

She and all of our CBS4 Weather Watchers help us to make a better forecast in Colorado’s Weather Center by filling in some very important voids in real-time current weather conditions provided by the National Weather Service.
