Austin Evans is from Campbellsville, Kentucky who joins the team as a meteorologist.
Austin attended Taylor County School where he developed an obsession with band. Playing trombone and marching baritone, Austin attended KMEA State Finals with the Taylor County High School Marching Band in 2010 placing third in the state. He was selected twice to the 4th District All-District Band. Even with all this music experience, he still wanted to be a meteorologist.
Austin graduated in 2014 and immediately after enrolled at Western Kentucky University to pursue his degree in meteorology. While attending WKU, Austin was a member and officer of the WKU Storm Team and was also a member of the WKU AMS/NWA Student Chapter. During his last two years at WKU he was selected to be a forecaster for White Squirrel Weather, a forecast entity tasked by the university to forecast for events and to provide advice for inclement weather. Along with his own graduation, he got the opportunity to forecast for the Grammy-winning rock band Cage the Elephant. He graduated in 2019 with his Bachelor of Science in Meteorology with a minor in Broadcast Communications.
When Austin is not busy at the studio he loves to relax with some video games. His favorites include Red Dead Redemption, HALO, and Rocket League. He loves music, especially Panic! at the Disco and Fall Out Boy. He also likes to spend time with his long-time girlfriend, Dakota, when she isn’t busy with all things art.
Austin is very excited to be in the Twin Tiers and is dedicated to providing the best forecasts possible. Feel free to email him at AustinEvans@wetmtv.com with anything from weather news or pictures or just to say hi!
