Nathan Scott is the weekend meteorologist and weekday environmental reporter.
Originally from Chestertown, Maryland, he attended Millersville University near Lancaster, Pennsylvania where he received my Bachelors of Science Degree in Meteorology in 2005 and also obtained a Minor in Math.
His passion for weather started when he was very young. He always watched the clouds, because he was terrified of thunderstorms. He would tune into every station's weathercast in Baltimore, Washington D.C. and sometimes Philadelphia; he drove his parents crazy, he says, with all that channel surfing.
The most memorable weather events for Nathan are Hurricane Floyd in 1999 when over twenty inches of rain fell in two days. Secondly, the Blizzards of 1993 and 1996 stand out due to all the ice and snow. More than two feet of snow covered the ground after the 1996 storm.
After going through all of these amazing displays of nature, Nathan says he wanted to know more. He wanted to find out how a sunny, hot, and humid day can lead to severe weather, and how snowstorms develop; that is why he became a meteorologist and loves what he does. Every day is different, he never gets bored and is always challenged.
Nathan started his broadcasting career at WHIZ-TV in Zanesville, Ohio as the weekday morning meteorologist. He says he feels very fortunate to call the Tri-Cities his home. Since he has been with WJHL he has experienced moments that will stay with him for the rest of his life, such as the Night of the Tornadoes on April 27, 2011. The pictures of the devastation and the lives that were affected were something that he never thought he would see here.
When he is not focusing on the weather, which is rare, he enjoys exercising, hiking, cooking, or just hanging out with friends. He hopes to call the Tri-Cities his home for several years.
