Justin has forecast the weather at News 2 since 2004. His interest in meteorology was sparked by growing up with hurricanes in Louisiana and blizzards in Pennsylvania. He’s worked dozens of severe weather outbreaks in the Mid-South and Tornado Alley. He loves snow, but his favorite forecasts involve sun and highs near 70 degrees.
Justin earned his meteorology degree at Penn State in 2003. While there, he forecast weather for The New York Times and helped teach an introductory meteorology course. His first television job was in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
You can wake up to Justin’s forecast each weekday on News 2 This Morning from 4 a.m. to 7 a.m., during Good Morning America from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., and on News 2 at 11 a.m.
Justin won a Regional Emmy for his work during a deadly Tennessee tornado outbreak in 2008. He won multiple AP Awards following the historic May 2010 floods. Justin has been voted as one of the best meteorologists in Nashville by the Tennessean’s “Toast of Music City” contest.
Justin has visited hundreds of local schools over the years to educate students about weather safety. Away from work, he has volunteered for Big Brothers Big Sisters for more than seven years. Justin is honored to help emcee News 2’s Ronald McDonald House of Nashville’s Calls for Kids telethon each spring. He also helps the Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee each winter during their cookie season.
Justin’s hobbies include golf, running, reading, following the NFL and the NBA, and rooting for his alma mater, Penn State. Justin and his wife live in East Nashville with their three rescue dogs.
