MIAMI (CBS4) – The CBS4 Mobile Weather Lab is a unique way to take the viewer to the bad weather.  Instead of waiting for thunderstorms or tropical storm squalls to arrive at a weather site, we now have the ability to meet the wind, rain, or extreme weather where it is happening.

The CBS4 Mobile Weather Lab is equipped with radar and satellite images, plus one of the most sophisticated weather instruments available.
