Justin’s passion for severe weather developed at age 12, when his hometown of Sissonville, W.Va., endured extensive damage after a tornado-producing storm. Witnessing such extreme conditions firsthand sparked Justin’s curiosity, which was then fueled by watching weather-related television programs that described different extreme weather conditions. This exposure to all facets of weather motivated Justin to analyze and deliver weather alerts and updates, providing people with life-saving weather warnings and information.
When Justin is not forecasting at AccuWeather, he enjoys everything the State College area has to offer including playing golf, skiing and hiking. An avid runner, Justin competes in half marathons and triathlons. He enjoys gardening, is committed to giving back to the community and also enjoys spending time with his family. Justin is happy to return to the Eastern region of the U.S. after spending time broadcasting in “tornado alley.”
