A Weather Legacy

A Weather Legacy: Half-Century on the Job

RAPID CITY, S.D. — After 50+ years of working as a meteorologist, with many of those years in western South Dakota, Bob Riggio has released his book A Weather Legacy: Half-Century on the Job. Riggio has written about his experiences and explains the region’s turbulent weather in an easy-to-understand book that is perfect for anybody.

Citizens of the Northern Plains see some of the most turbulent weather and in his book, Bob hopes to pass along his hard-earned wisdom about those stormy events.

“Whether you reside in the Northern Plains or not, reading this book will leave you with a better understanding of this utterly fascinating, highly dynamic, and in-your-face phenomena known as weather” says Bob Riggio.

Bob has been covering Western South Dakota’s weather since before the 1972 flood. In A Weather Legacy, Bob goes through everything from seasonal changes, weekly forecasting, and the greatest weather events seen in the region, including Winter Storm Atlas.
