Every element of weather fascinates me, but I’d have to say that winter storms are my favorite. I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah and I always loved getting out into the snow and just watching it pile up in our yard. Even having to shovel all that snow off the driveway never deterred me from my love of winter.
I also enjoy the sunshine and warmth of summer, but I’m usually keeping a countdown of the days until fall begins and the first snowflakes start flying. There’s just something magical about snow that can also be very challenging to predict! Fortunately, I’ve had plenty of opportunities to forecast winter storms during my career. I’ve worked in Colorado (Grand Junction and Denver), Washington state, and I recently worked as the Chief Meteorologist for the CBS station in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
I’m excited to be back in the Denver area, especially so I can cheer even louder for my favorite team, the Denver Broncos! I’m also an avid fan of the Utah Jazz and the BYU Cougars.
