Northern Illinois University, Bachelor's Degree in Meteorology
Joe Astolfi has been a weather enthusiast and geography guru ever since childhood. After earning an Associate degree at Terra State Community College in Ohio, he decided to pursue a Bachelor degree in meteorology at Northern Illinois University. He minored in Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Before arriving at WeatherNation TV, Joe worked at WREX-TV in Rockford, Illinois. Forecasting for northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin was anything but ordinary. Severe storms, tornadoes, flooding, blizzards, and heat waves are just some of the extreme weather events he has covered. Joe grew up in Sandusky, Ohio and will always have a passion for the Great Lakes region and all it has to offer.
