During the show, editor-in-chief Yantis Green spoke with Amy Campbell with the National Weather Service office in San Angelo. In the interview they spoke about a number of topics including the infamous "San Angelo bubble."
Unfortunately for the conspiracy theorists out there its looks as if the bubble may not be what it seems.
"It's actually an artifact on how the radar samples the atmosphere," said Campbell. "So out at a distance a radar beam is much wider so it can't see the breaks or the spaces between storms. But as the storms move closer the radar beam is narrower and it can see those spaces between storms."
