Bill Reh has been forecasting the weather in central North Carolina since 1983. Weekday mornings you can see him along side Sharon Tazewell, Phil Sanchez and Page Crawford on WNCN Today starting at 4:30 a.m.

Bill spent 13 years working and forecasting the weather at WTVD in Durham, covering such weather events as the Red Springs killer tornado outbreak of 1984, the deadly Raleigh tornado of November 1988 and Hurricane Fran in 1996. He also wrote and produced the exhibit: "Ask a Meteorologist" for the N.C. Museum of Life and Science in Durham.

Bill then worked at WB22 in Raleigh for five years forecasting and covering Hurricane Floyd and the Snow Storm of the Century in 2000. He also initiated the first ozone maps to be used graphically in the country and presented a tutorial video at the 2003 National Air Quality Conference in San Antonio.

Through his experiences as a television meteorologist in the area, he has gained an unique understanding of how important the weather is to viewers and how it affects North Carolinians. He says that he has gotten to the stage in his career where young adults come up to him and say that they grew up watching him.

Bill graduated from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Ill., with a double major in meteorology and broadcasting.  He earned the American Meteorological Society Television Seal of Approval in 1984.

He has taught continuing education classes on the weather at Duke University and has visited literally thousands of school children throughout the years explaining the how's and why's of weather.

Bill has been honored several times by viewers for his Weathercasts and was most recently recognized in the 2010 Metro Bravo Awards.

When he's not forecasting the weather for WNCN, Bill enjoys cooking, exercising (so he can eat), spending time with his family, and when the weather is nice, being outdoors.
