Sean Bellafiore is the weekday morning and noon meteorologist at KWTX
Sean is already a seasoned member of the most trusted severe weather team in Central Texas. He’s experienced in forecasting and tracking storms whether it be on-air, on social media or out in our Weather Edge storm chasing unit
Sean joined the station in November of 2015. He lived in New York during his childhood, quickly gaining a passion for weather after experiencing thunderstorms, cold weather, and blizzards. His passion for meteorology continued to grow after moving to Florida and being struck by Hurricane Frances within two weeks of moving. The active weather pattern in Florida helped push Sean to pursue a career in Meteorology.
Sean has earned a Master’s Degree from Mississippi State University in Geoscience/Applied Meteorology after finishing his courses with a 4.0 GPA. Sean attended undergraduate studies at the University of Florida, working for a 24/7 News, Weather, Sports station while completing his undergraduate degree in Gainesville. During that time, Sean covered hurricanes, tornadoes, thunderstorms, and even some winter weather. Sean graduated from UF in 2015 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Telecommunication and a Meteorology and Climatology Certificate.
During his free time, Sean enjoys storm chasing, traveling and cooking. When not at home cooking, you’ll usually find Sean enjoying lunch or dinner at many Central Texas staples. Sean’s always looking for suggestions on new restaurants to try and different things to do in Central Texas. You can reach him by email or through social media websites like Twitter and Facebook.
Sean is proud to be a part of The Weather Authority and looks forward to telling you the daily weather story, and passing along potentially life-saving information when severe weather strikes.
