Hi, I'm Zach!
Hi, I'm Zach Walters. I am a Midwest born extreme storm chaser who tracks down America's most amazing weather events with the goal of documenting history. I also provide many tools for forecasting upcoming weather events, I am a Weather Ready Nation Ambassador for the NOAA NWS, and a loving father.
I have been chasing storms since I was in high school. I have had the opportunity to learn from some of the best in Meteorology and apply that towards my professional career. I am currently a Atmospheric Science / Meteorology student studying towards my PhD!
Follow me for a front row seat to mother nature.
Storm Chasing & Covid-19
As the country goes through a very serious disease, we all need to remember to mask up and remain safe when attempting to control COVID-19. While in the field, if I can not keep the social distancing protocol, I will wear a mask to prevent myself and others from gaining the deadly virus.
Weather Ready Nation
The Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador™ initiative is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) effort to formally recognize NOAA partners who are improving the nation’s readiness, responsiveness, and overall resilience against extreme weather, water, and climate events. As a WRN Ambassador, I commit to working with NOAA and other Ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather. In effect, the WRN Ambassador initiative helps unify the efforts across government, non-profits, academia, and private industry toward making the nation more ready, responsive, and resilient against extreme environmental hazards. Weather-Ready Nation (WRN) is a strategic outcome where society’s response should be equal to the risk from all extreme weather, water, and climate hazards.
