Dave Hayes is beloved in Western Mass for providing hyperlocal weather reporting on his Facebook page. This “nerdy science info,” translated into more digestible language, is aggregated from various apps and meteorologists and distributed in a distinctive “papa bird” tone that people in the community love to pick up on. “I feel a duty to keep people as aware as possible about impactful weather,” Hayes says.
