David Reese - WRBL

David Reese

David is excited to call the Chattahoochee River Valley home. He joined the First Alert Weather Team in October 2010 and can be seen Monday through Friday on News 3 This Morning and News 3 Midday.

Originally from Sarasota, Fla., he went to Florida State University and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Meteorology. 

David has always had a passion for weather and his interest really peaked when Hurricane Charley roared ashore in Florida in August 2004. It intensified quickly and took a hard right turn south of Sarasota. Since then, he worked diligently to be a broadcast meteorologist, so he can keep people safe during the most stressful weather situations.

Spending time in the weather center is his love and passion. He was a meteorologist for Florida State's Weather Show for two years and at ABC 7 in Sarasota, Fla., where he interned both in the weather center and out in the field with a photographer.

He will not miss being in the middle of a mass of people attempting to get interviews with politicians. He will, however, miss being along the beach in the winter. 

When not forecasting weather, you can find him out at the parks either running, hiking, or biking, and cheering on the Florida State Seminoles and Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Showers and thunderstorms were a little scarcer today thanks in part to us being stuck between two systems. The system off to our west, which has been there for the past few days, continues to pump a lot of moisture into parts of Texas and Louisiana and won't make a whole lot of progress to the east tomorrow. The second system was a push of dry air which moved in from the Atlantic. This dry air kept a lid on our thunderstorm coverage today.
