Scott Dimmich joined Local 12 and The Weather Authority in November 2011. Prior to working in Cincinnati, Scott worked at WEHT-TV in Evansville, IN where he was the morning meteorologist, and at WYMT-TV in Hazard, KY. Scott also 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, OH and here at Local 12.
Scott is a native of Blue Ash and a graduate of Sycamore High School. He 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. He 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 Blue Ash, Montgomery, and Symmes Township. While his home was spared, many of his friends` homes were not. In the days after that storm, 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, traveling, watching Penn State football, and following college basketball. Being an Eagle Scout, he also enjoys hiking, camping, and spending time in the great outdoors.
