Scott Dimmich is the newest meteorologist to be a part of The Weather Authority. A native of Blue Ash, Scott joined the Local 12 team as the weekend meteorologist in November 2011.
Prior to working in Cincinnati, Scott worked at WEHT-TV in Evansville, IN. He was the morning meteorologist there and at WYMT-TV in Hazard, KY. Scott served as a meteorologist for a live, nightly weather magazine produced by the Penn State Department of Meteorology called Weather World, which is aired on the Pennsylvania Cable Network and numerous Pennsylvania PBS stations. He also had the opportunity to intern with the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Wilmington, Ohio and here at Local 12.
Scott has a bachelor of science in Meteorology with an option in Weather Forecasting and Communications from Penn State University. As an undergraduate, Scott helped to teach several introductory and mesoscale meteorology courses.
Scott is also a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM), an accreditation awarded by the American Meteorological Society. He has been a member of the American Meteorological Society since he was a student at Penn State.
Scott's love for the weather began even before he entered grade school. That passion further developed in April 1999, when an F4 tornado pummeled through the Cincinnati suburb where he was born and raised. While Scott's home was spared, many of his friends' homes were not. In the days after that storm came through, Scott helped to clean up his community, and - in doing so - decided to make meteorology his career.
Outside of work, Scott enjoys spending time with friends and family, playing volleyball, swimming, watching Penn State football, and following college basketball. Being an Eagle Scout, he also enjoys hiking, camping, and spending time in the great outdoors.
