Hi y’all!  Working in the South for the last 5 years has certainly introduced a few new words to my vocabulary, not to mention some unbearably hot summers, but I am excited to jump north of the Mason Dixon Line and establish my new home in Erie.  I am a Virginia native, but I have made previous stops in Mississippi and Texas.

I did my undergraduate work at Roanoke College and proceeded to study meteorology at Mississippi State University.  One of the coolest things I ever did as a student was participate in a two-week storm chase on the Great Plains.  My group captured 5 tornadoes on our journey which extended from Texas to South Dakota.  Seeing the true power of nature on display only enhanced my desire to become a meteorologist.  After I received my Master’s degree in 2011, I accepted my first on-air job at WXVT in Greenville, MS.  Ironically, morning anchor Kara Coleman and I began our television careers at the same station just at different times!  TV is certainly a small world!  Now in Mississippi I covered a lot of severe weather, while at KBMT in Beaumont, TX, I learned a lot about the tropics.

Regardless of where I was, I rarely had to forecast any winter weather; but that changes now!  I am so happy to be a part of the Northwest Pennsylvania family and I look forward to meeting many of you along the way.  Say hi anytime, my email is dwolter@wicu12.com.  I am also on Facebook and Twitter (@DavidWolter1)
