Don Harman

Some extremely sad news today... Long-time Kansas City meteorologist and weathercaster Don Harman died yesterday. He worked at WDAF-TV since 1999, and was very popular on their morning show.

Don had an awesome sense of humor, both on-air and off. He was always enthusiastic about weather, very knowledgeable, and a great communicator. My wife Shawna and I always enjoyed watching him on TV, as well as seeing him at AMS meetings, and have fond memories of the time a few years ago when he interviewed us about our kids book on storm chasing. He was a friend, and we are quite taken aback today at his passing.

With all the posts and discussion Shawna has been monitoring today on Facebook, it is clear that Don was an important part of KC area mornings for many many people, and will be missed beyond words. No one can replace him.

Our hearts and thoughts go out to Don's family and little girl, as well as the staff at WDAF. I can't imagine what they are feeling right now. This is a huge loss...
