Stephen is Chief Meteorologist at WAAY.
My interest in meteorology started with a pair of hurricanes in the mid-90s, and it snowballed (no pun intended) from there. I went to both Pensacola State College and to Florida State University, and started my career at WCTV in Tallahassee, Florida. I have served as Chief Meteorologist at WTOK in Meridian, Mississippi, at KOAA in Colorado Springs, and now at WAAY31!
I have had the opportunity to cover everything from tornadoes and hurricanes, to blizzards and ice storms. Including the April 27, 2011 tornado outbreak. Floods and wildfires have also been in the mix. I have been honored by the Associated Press with numerous awards for my weather coverage.
I am excited to be in Huntsville and closer to my hometown of Pensacola, Florida. The weather is dynamic, and I will be tracking dangerous conditions to help keep you and your family safe.
Persistent, widespread rain is a guarantee. Snow isn't a guarantee, but it is possible for in spots.
A storm system will mean rain this weekend. A few of us could see the rain change to snow Sunday night and Monday.
As the WAAY 31 Storm Tracker Weather Team analyzes new data, some changes are trending in our forecast for this weekend. There's a fair amount of consistency, too.
A storm system will bring widespread rain this weekend that could change to snow Sunday and Sunday night.
Colder air will arrive in the Tennessee Valley Monday night. A storm system will develop late this week and will bring rain that could change to snow this weekend.
Widespread rain will fall through around midday Saturday. A couple of stronger storms may try to develop and mix in with the rain Saturday morning.
Showers on Friday will precede increasing showers and thunderstorms for Saturday. An isolated severe thunderstorm is possible on Saturday.
Saturday will become clear and dry after a soggy Friday night and Saturday morning.
Rain is on the way. A few showers are possible as early as Friday afternoon, but the biggest part of the rain will move through the Tennessee Valley Friday night and early Saturday morning.
Rain is on the way for the night of Black Friday, but we will keep the sun for Thanksgiving.
