John Braddock has been a weather enthusiast as long as he can remember. His earliest memories are of his Weather Channel Storm Chaser videos and a briefcase he carried around with maps and cloud charts. John would later attend Colorado State University in Fort Collins and although he majored in Computer Science, he spent much time in the Department of Atmospheric Science. He participated in several small storm chases with groups at the school and helped launch daily weather balloons from campus.
John attended his first Chasercon in February 2013 and joined the Colorado Storm Network. He is happy to be able to continue his passion with a great group who have the same love for weather as he does. While public safety is always the first priority for Storm Spotters and chasers, John especially enjoys helping folks discover the weather around them, education of severe weather and has a special interest in Colorado's weather processes.
He is looking forward to a great season in 2014!
