C. Roberts, Jr. Weather God of New Orleans. Once again the
first name only will immediately bring this legendary New Orleans icon
to mind to any local. The dean of weathermen (Meteorologists).
During hurricane season when any storm made it's way into the Gulf we
waited with bated breath for Nash to bring out his black marker and show
us on his map where the storm's predicted landfall would be.
Nash worked his magic originally at WDSU in 1951 (where he was one of
the nations first TV meteorologists) and later at WVUE and WWL before
retiring after fifty years on the local airways in 2001.
