Meet The Team

Todd Nelson

A young, energetic, meteorologist who was born and raised on the frozen ponds of Minnesota! He earned his meteorology degree from St. Cloud State University and moved to Duluth, MN to cover lake effect snow storms along the shores of coldest and deepest of the Great Lakes, Lake Superior. Soon after, he became Chief Meteorologist at a start-up station in Duluth, KQDS Fox 21 News. Here he successfully created and launched the weather brand for the station that was Emmy nominated for best newscast in the Upper Midwest for 2007 and 2008. During his time in Duluth, he could have been heard giving weather reports to various local radio stations, seen in the local newspaper with his daily weather column and surfed on the web with his daily weather blog. Todd is very involved with the weather and even does part-time work as a weather observer at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport. Here he conducts hourly METAR/SPECI observations that are used by pilots. Todd's passion for the weather is clearly displayed during his on-air reports. He is a valuable asset to WeatherNation and has been a wonderful addition to our team of Meteorologists.
