Jake Dalton grew up in South Louisiana and has been fascinated with weather as long as he can remember.
As a young child, Jake would spend hours watching the Weather Channel, as well as documentaries about hurricanes and tornadoes.
What really sold Jake on pursing a career in meteorology was going through the eyewall of Hurricane Katrina when he was nine years old. Experiencing the effects of Hurricane Katrina at a young age made Jake even more fascinated by weather.
Jake is now a senior at Mississippi State pursing his degree in Meteorology.
In his spare time, he enjoys listening to music and spending time with his friends and family.
