    I am the Chief Meteorologist at Fox 46 Carolinas. I moved to Charlotte after working for the FOX owned station in Orlando. After dealing with hurricanes for 10 years, I missed the snow and decided I was ready for the challenge of a Carolina winter.

    California Drought Affects the Carolinas

    Currently, about 1/3 of California is in an “exceptional drought,” the worst category, and that number has been increasing lately. It's affecting us here in the Carolinas.

I am the Chief Meteorologist at Fox 46 Carolinas.

I moved to Charlotte after working for the FOX owned station in Orlando. After dealing with hurricanes for 10 years, I missed the snow and decided I was ready for the challenge of a Carolina winter.

I received my Master of Science degree in meteorology from the University of Maryland. I was the first meteorologist in Central Florida to be designated a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist by the American Meteorological Society (AMS). I have since been elected Chairman of the Board of Broadcast Meteorology for the AMS. I also hold the National Weather Association (NWA) Seal of Approval.

In my spare time, I have taught meteorology courses to college students. When I am not working, I enjoy pretty much anything outdoors. I also have an interest in classic cars. In fact, I have two of them  - a 1965 Mustang and a 1955 Thunderbird, which has been in my family since 1966.

I live in Charlotte with my wife who works for the competition, and our two cats.

    Hagan is striking the delicate balance of trying to appeal to her base, while at the same time not tying herself too closely with Obama, so that she can appeal to moderates.
