Reed Timmer Joins AccuWeather Network Team
AccuWeather today announced veteran meteorologist Reed Timmer has formally joined the AccuWeather staff, cementing the relationship that has existed for some time between his company and the network.
Timmer will now combine his broad meteorological knowledge and experience with his passion for chasing storms.
Timmer uses 360 video cameras to bring AccuWeather viewers a unique perspective on weather events. One of Timmer’s 360 videos captured an extreme close-up of an EF-2 tornado in Wray, Colo., which quickly went viral in May. Footage from the event garnered over 16 million views across YouTube and social networks. See AccuWeather’s 360 video of the Wray tornado here.
Timmer and his company have been chasing storms for AccuWeather for the last two years, providing coverage of extreme weather in the U.S. He has documented more than 1,000 tornados since beginning his career in 1998 and has also chased a vast amount of hurricanes and blizzards.
He earned his Ph.D. in meteorology from the University of Oklahoma.
