Mike Moran

Hi- I'm Mike Moran.  I have been a weather nut since grade school.  We moved around when I was a kid, so I was able to see  hurricanes first hand, tornadoes and waterspouts in Florida, desert thunderstorms in Arizona, and the fruit of giant ocean storms as a surfer in California.  I flew in the Navy - the aircraft carrier's meteo office was right next to my bunkroom... Then a move to Connecticut and the delights of four seasons and winter storms.  All these experiences made me a committed weather geek.  These days, I am a pastor until the ocean stirrs up, then I revert to full-on surfer status (usually in Rhode Island).  

I love watching the models, reading the weather blogs and of course enjoying the show, whether it is bright fall sunshine on the beautiful leaves, snow piling up, summer thunder boomers, big waves for fun, or quiet early morning mist.  Weather's the best!
