“Like many meteorologists, Scott’s interest in weather started at an early age. Oddly enough, he had a fear of the weather from the time he was 3 until he was about 12. Scott and his father would sit on the front porch watching the storms roll into his neighborhood.
“He still remembers watching with amazement at the force of the wind and the intensity of the lightning. Thanks to his dad, his fear turned into a fascination, leading him to study meteorology at Western Illinois University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in meteorology and a double minor in broadcasting and math.
“During Scott’s career, he has moved to and forecasted for many different climates. Scott has been challenged with ice storms, hurricanes, tornadoes and desert heat. Let’s just say, Scott knows the weather. But being from a military family, Scott is used to moving. However, he is now glad to be “back home” with family.”
He is both a member of the National Weather Association and the American Meteorological Society.
