Brandon was born and raised in Oklahoma, but his roots run deep in the south. In fact, his grandfather was born here in the Tennsessee Valley in Decatur.

Brandon holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Oklahoma, and served for seven years as a meteorologist in Oklahoma City, where he covered weather that ranged from destructive tornadoes and hail to ice storms and blizzards.

Other than his passion for weather, Brandon's interests include almost all sports (especially baseball), hunting, fishing, flying, and just about anything else that will get him outdoors.

    Timing The Storms Expected Monday/Tuesday

    The big weather headline this week, not only for the Tennessee Valley but for a large section of the country, is the anticipated passage of an unusually strong cold-front by mid-week.
