A Harbor College Professor of Geography has gotten herself into legal trouble for battling with Los Angeles weatherman Fritz Coleman over his terminology. Dr. Melanie Patton Renfrew apparently wants Coleman to use better terminology in describing on and offshore winds, contending he is confusing the public. A restraining order was obtained by KNBC in March of 2008 and Renfrew pleaded no contest to violating the restraining on August 7, 2009.
