I am currently WECT and Fox Wilmington's Weeknight Meteorologist and am happy to be celebrating thirteen years in Wilmington. My first television job was in Rapid City, SD where I honed my winter weather forecasting skills. I also had the chance to be a Chief Meteorologist at a small station in Abilene, TX, right in the heart of tornado alley. Prior to my arrival at WECT, I picked up valuable tropical weather skills forecasting in the Lafayette, LA market along the U.S. Gulf coast. I am a native North Carolinian who is happy to be in the Tar Heel state. I was born in Raleigh and I am a graduate of Broughton High School and N. C. State's Meteorology program. The Raleigh Tornado of 1988 and Hurricane Hugo in 1989 fueled my interest in weather when I was young. I was awarded the AMS Television Seal of Approval in 1998. I have been married for eighteen years to my wonderful wife Elizabeth. We have a son named Winston and a daughter named Anna-Scott. We also have a dachshund mixed dog named Texas (You can probably guess where we got him). I love sports such as: golf, basketball, and tennis. I'm also a big fan of John Grisham books. I am very happy to be in North Carolina to cheer my beloved N. C. State Wolfpack through thick and mostly thin. For several years I served on the board of the Phoenix Employment Ministry. This group does wonderful work in helping homeless and nearly homeless people in our community find work. Over the years I have had the chance to share my passion for weather with many schools and civic organizations across southeast North Carolina. Feel free to email me at email@example.com if you would like me to speak to your group!
Your forecast for the rest of this week features no subfreezing temperatures, no winter storms, and little or no risk of severe weather. But that’s not to say the weather won’t be dynamic! You can expect lots of day to day changes as a front seesaws across the Cape Fear Region.
As a cold front will wiggles the through the Cape Fear Region, expect cooler temperatures Monday night and Tuesday but not much moisture. However, looking ahead to the extended forecast, this front will meander causing an unsettled pattern to persist through much of the week ahead.
Your First Alert Forecast features more temperature trips to the spring-like 70s Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Average early February highs are upper 50s and, eventually, this weekend, a cold frontal passage will return our readings to or close to that range.
Bringing in the New Year with lots of clouds overhead. Could see a few peaks of sunshine through the day, but also a chance of seeing a stray shower or two as well. You definitely won’t be needing a jacket today that’s for sure!
Another in what has been a long line of wet, windy storm systems remains set to streak through the Cape Fear Region Thursday and Thursday night, but a more settled and seasonable weather pattern will emerge for this weekend and Christmas.
