Nick Grunseth joined the News 18 Forecast Team in January 2011 as the Daybreak Meteorologist. But he's not new to WQOW. Prior to a two year service as the morning Meteorologist at sister station WXOW in La Crosse, he was the weekend Meteorologist on staff. Nick is thrilled to be back in the Chippewa Valley!
Nick was born and raised in a small town in western Wisconsin. His first interest in weather came during a severe thunderstorm in 1994 when his town was issued a tornado warning. Nick says he was scared and decided if he learned more about the weather, he wouldn't have to be scared anymore. Since that storm, Nick has been hooked on the atmosphere!
Nick attended UW-Madison and graduated in May 2007 with his degree in Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences. In June 2009, he earned the Certified Broadcast Designation by the American Meteorological Society for scientific competence and effective communication skills in his weather presentations, a designation shared by few in the broadcast meteorology field. He is active in his profession, constantly working with his colleagues to improve forecasting and severe weather awareness.
Nick and his wife Britny were married in Eau Claire in July 2010. When not at work, they enjoy exploring the Chippewa Valley. You may see them out for a walk, enjoying some good food and camaraderie, snowshoeing, or just taking in the beauty of western Wisconsin.
