About Colorado Meteorologist Steve Hamilton

SH AMS WRNSteve Hamilton is a professional meteorologist, based in Denver. He is certified by the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association. Steve has studied weather since age 9 when Hurricane Agnes roared across his home town in New Jersey. As a young boy, Steve began to write to TV weather forecasters in Philadelphia, asking for weather maps and satellite images so he could study them. He moved to Denver, Colorado with his family in 1979, graduating from Columbine High School in Littleton in 1980.


He went on to college, graduating with a BS in Mass Media from Colorado State University in 1984. His second stint as a college student was at Mississippi State University for Meteorology, graduating in 2009, and earning his American Meteorological Society Seal Of Approval in December 2009. Steve was a weather intern/producer for KMGH-TV for five years before entering the field as a professional meteorologist.

Steve is now one of the lead meteorologists for The Storm Report, Inc., based in Kansas City, MO, but Steve has his own weather studio in Denver. "The Storm Report" specializes in delivering custom weather forecasts and live severe weather updates to 150 radio stations across the country. He is also a “Storm Chaser” and often roams the Colorado plains in the spring and summer, photographing tornadoes and severe thunderstorms for scientific study.

Additionally, Steve serves as a Weather Ready Nation Ambassador for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador™ initiative is NOAA's effort to formally recognize NOAA partners who are improving the nation’s readiness, responsiveness, and overall resilience against extreme weather, water, and climate events. You can contact Steve through our MMT Homepage.

This is great I am so glad to know we have our own Meteorologist.

Maybe he can tell me when it will rain in Bailey so the pine pollen will go away. People tell me I live in the banana belt but have yet to see a banana tree :P

So, where will the forecasts be posted in this forum or on a special page?

Storm chasers fascinate me maybe you could share some of the photos you get or maybe videos!

Great question NeutralGuy! Steve will be posting his forecasts on our new Super Local Weather Forecasts page here: mymountaintown.com/weather-traffic/super-local-weather which can be found in the drop-down menu that opens up when you click on Weather & Traffic in the menu across the very top of the page (or you can bookmark it!).

I too would love to see some photos and/or video while storm-chasing!

I have a real question...Where in Bailey is the temp reading coming from?

I am only asking as it says 73 right now and both my manual and digital thermometer are saying 80 they are on the back side of the house so the sun is not hitting them.

This is mostly a curiosity thing I know temps can be different depending on altitude and all that.

Do you mean the current temp that is displayed on the left-hand side of the Home & weather pages? If so, that's from Weather Underground; I have no idea where they measure it.

Yes, that was what I was looking at and that is good to hear Weatherunderground as that is what I typically use seems to be the closest.

Unfortunately, Steve had some family health stuff come up. If everyone could send good positive healing thoughts to his family, it would be much appreciated. He's hoping to start this week, but I told him to not worry as family comes first. I'll keep you posted when he's ready! Thanks.
