Updated weather video: McKinley's report available on VillageSoup

Feb 08, 2013
Ken McKinley of Camden-based Locus Weather will provide Monday to Friday weather videos on VillageSoup. The service launched Feb. 8.

Rockport resident and professional meteorologist Ken McKinley of Camden-based Locus Weather is now producing detailed, weekday Local Focus forecasts for Knox County VillageSoup, which went live on the website Feb. 8.

The segments will include a combination of video and images, some of which McKinley said he will invite viewers to contribute.

The forecast will debut online around 6 a.m. Mondays through Fridays and each segment will include a five-day forecast. He estimates he will begin production around 4 a.m. with a couple hours of preparation completed the day prior to the segment airing.

The 5-day forecasts will include comprehensive weather information including temperatures, wind speeds and precipitation. A recap of the previous day's weather will be included in each forecast as well. Most importantly, said McKinley, the forecasts will be oriented specifically to Knox County.

Another great job Ken.  A real weather program.  Couldn't be much better.  You should be able to pick up a good number of sponsers for a professional presentation like this.

This is a terrific local capsule of weather right out our front doors.  It is a great service by Ken and Village Soup.  We're lucky we're here.

This is a great addition to the Website.  This presentation is alone worth the very reasonable price.  Weather by a real local expert that will be extremely useful to local mariners.   Thanks Ken and Village Soup.  Very useful down here in Florida!

An excellent new feature of the Village Soup, and well presented by our very own local weather guy Ken McKinley!
