Meteorologist Dylan Federico came to Columbus, GA and joined Storm Team 9 to pursue his life-long dream of becoming a Broadcast Meteorologist. Dylan, a New Orleans native, became interested in the weather at a very young age thanks to Hurricane Georges in 1998. His interests only grew when he would watch The Weather Channel instead of cartoons. Dylan’s strong passion in Meteorology is focused in the tropics and severe weather. He even chased Hurricanes Matthew, Harvey, and Irma over the past couple of years. He wants to use his knowledge and experience to keep the community informed and weather-ready for hurricanes and severe weather. His life-long passion of forecasting the tropics, severe weather, along with his fascination in Climatology led him to Mississippi State University to earn his Meteorology Degree. Dylan's professional career began as a meteorology intern at WVUE (FOX 8) in New Orleans. When Dylan isn’t looking at the weather, you could find him working out at the gym, running along the Chattahoochee Riverwalk, or having fun at a local festival! He also a huge fan of the New Orleans Saints!
