(WHAS11) - We've had a lot of crazy weather in Kentuckiana, but most people around here will never forget The Blizzard of '78.

In this week's Friday night flashback into the WHAS archives, Doug Proffitt takes you back to the newscast that warned people about the blizzard.

It was the end of January and meteorologist Chuck Taylor went outside to show everyone what was coming.

The 1978 Action 11 Newscast also shows you the simple weather technology, flipped on by switches on the set. And you'll even catch a locally produced commercial starring Phyllis Diller.
