Previously, Reynolds Wolf worked as a studio meteorologist and field correspondent at CNN covering wildfires, floods, tornadoes, heatwaves, winter storms, and earthquakes. He also reported live from many hurricanes and tropical storms along the Gulf Coast, Eastern Seaboard, The Bahamas, and Hawaii. Reynolds spent much of the spring and summer of 2010 reporting on the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, and was the first at CNN to fly with the U.S. Coast Guard over the former site of the Deepwater Horizon.
Prior to joining CNN, Reynolds worked in many local television stations across the United States, with stops in St. Louis, Orlando, Detroit, Austin, Texas, San Luis Obispo, CA and Anniston, Ala.
A native of Jemison, Ala., Reynolds is a graduate of Jacksonville State University and has a Certificate of Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. He holds the American Meteorological Society Seal of Approval.
A fly-fishing, fitness enthusiast, and married father of four children, Reynolds spends what little free time he has with family, exercising, or a little of both and chasing Beauregard, their Golden Retriever.

What's your favorite season?
Fall is my favorite season. No doubt!
How long have you been with The Weather Channel?
What's your favorite weather memory?
I once covered a massive winter storm in California's Sierra Nevada Range. High up on Donner Pass--the snow and wind were so intense, I could hold my hands up less than a foot from my eyes and still couldn't see them. The noise was deafening!!!
What is your most memorable/funniest on-camera moment?
Too many memorable on-location moments reporting live from floods, fires, hurricanes, tropical storms, tornadoes, heat waves, oil spills and droughts to mention here. The funniest on-camera moment? Any time I work with Stephanie Abrams, Jen Carfagno or Dr. Greg Postel, the funny moments tend to pile up. Weather permitting, of course!
What would people be surprised to know about you?
I'm an avid fly fisherman and outdoorsman. Although, I adore my wife and love being around my family--I do enjoy the adventure of hiking alone in some of the most remote places I can find. I love fly fishing on lonely streams in the Rocky Mountains. Nothing quite like it.
What sparked your passion for weather?
The inclusiveness of weather attracts me. It's the common denominator in our life experience, isn't it? On this silly zoo of a rotating sphere called Earth, every living thing is affected by climate and weather. There's no escaping it. We're all in this together!
If you could only have one piece of weather data what would you choose and why?
Barometer. Barometric pressure is the single greatest indicator of what I might expect out of a day on the water. A rising barometer is usually a harbinger of a pretty slow day in terms of fishing. But if the barometric pressure is tumbling, it's time to go fishing!
What do you want to say to our fans?
Forecasting is fun. Telling a great weather story is a passion. But being part of The Weather Channel family and serving the American people is truly a privilege. It's our solemn duty to deliver weather information that can keep you, your families and your communities safe. Thanks for your treasured viewership!
