Minnesota Public Radio meteorologist Craig Edwards has written a memoir. It's titled "Nature's Messenger: Memoirs of a prophetic Meteorologist", and chronicles his years as a professional meteorologist and the path that led him to this line of work.

In the book, Edwards describes vivid memories of everything from being an altar boy to watching snowstorms out of the window of his junior high and even to the first day on the job at the National Weather Service.

Edwards sat down with Tom Crann to talk about his career, the book and what prompted him to write a memoir on his life as a meteorologist.
