Weather Pilot 5 is WPTV's newest tool to bring you coverage of severe weather.

With live capabilities and advanced technology, Weather Pilot 5 lets the Storm Team 5 meteorologists go directly to where weather is impacting your neighborhood.

Sponsored by South Florida Honda Dealers, WPTV Weather Pilot 5 allows us to do ground reporting at a street level, chasing damage reports and severe weather.

With both microwave and internet broadcasting abilities the vehicle can broadcast from anywhere and cameras inside and out let you see the conditions as well as our meteorologists as they report.

A large monitor in the back allows our meteorologists to show you live VIPIR 5 Radar from anywhere, and compliment weather reports from the WPTV Studio.

Look for Weather Pilot 5 at community events and check it out for yourself, and make sure to say "hi" to Chief Meteorologist Steve Weagle and the entire Storm Team 5.
