A difficult week for the Mid-South weather community

After writing on the passing of long-time Meteorologist-in-Charge of the Memphis NWS office Ric Coleman earlier this week, we now hear of the death of noted TV Meteorologist Brian Teigland. Brian, 53, served as Chief Meteorologist at WPTY (ABC affiliate Channel 24) and WLMT (CW affiliate Channel 30) in Memphis. Apparently he fell ill at his home and paramedics were able to transport him to Methodist Germantown Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

According to his bio, Brian “…was the only Mid-South weather anchor to attend the Conference on Global Warming at the White House, meeting personally with the President and Vice President.” The Mid-South weather community will miss Brian’s familiar face and solid weather forecasting and reporting, particularly during severe weather events. He leaves a wife, two daughters, and a son. Please pray for Brian and Ric’s families and all who knew them.
