WFAA's winning piece, A Day of Weather, featured continuing coverage of a serious storm that inundated Dallas/Fort Worth in September 2010.  The story started mid-morning with an intense thunderstorm in Arlington, Texas, and ended early-evening with live coverage of a tornado passing just southwest of downtown Dallas which WFAA captured live.
