The Weather Watcher Network was created by Mike Augustyniak in 2012 for CBS Minnesota.  Viewers submit current weather conditions from their home weather stations -- including snowfall, photos, and videos -- using propitiatory software.  WCCO's meteorologists use the data to improve forecasts and on-air presentation through a variety of display methods, including WSI TruVu Max integration and custom-built touchscreen software.

In 2013, Mike helped to implement the program, graphics, and infrastructure nationwide across the CBS Television Station group, to a potential audience of 37 million, providing the added benefit of data-sharing amongst all cities.
