Portland Highlights

Benny Beaver greets one of his favorite Portland Metro television personalities, the genial KATU-2 meteorologist Dave Salesky. Dave is a self-confessed weather geek, which comes in handy in the Pacific Northwest. He has a seal from the American Meteorological Society and a certificate of meteorology from Mississippi State University, and has forecasted weather from Spokane to Portland.
