Aaron Ofseyer is an award winning meteorologist who joins us from KEZI in Eugene, Oregon.

Aaron grew up in Dallas, Texas where he fell in love with severe weather. He would often stay up way past his bedtime listening to his weather radio following storms.

In elementary school, lightning split a 100 year old pecan tree in half, sparking a fascination with weather that continues today. To this day, he still sleeps with his weather radio.

After high school, Aaron attended the University of Hartford majoring in psychology and broadcast journalism.

Aaron studied meteorology through Mississippi State University. His forecast was awarded the prestigious seal of approval by the American Meteorological Society.

He even entertained a career in baseball after playing semi-professionally for the Detroit Tigers for a summer. But a bad elbow and genetics conspired to cut his career short. Luckily, these limitations haven't hindered his prowess on the weather wall.

When he's not forecasting, you can probably find Aaron eating cheese with his wife, his daughter Lula and two cats.
