Garrett Bedenbaugh has known he wanted to be a “weatherman” on television since he was in the third grade. He once was afraid of storms, now he tracks them down to street level on First Alert Doppler HD!
Originally from Clinton, South Carolina, Garrett obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
Garrett’s favorite aspect of meteorology is tropical storms and hurricanes. Garrett loves tropical forecasting which is why he loves forecasting in Jacksonville.
Garrett is a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) from the American Meteorological Society and is also a member of the National Weather Association.
Garrett is very active on social media and loves seeing all of the #FirstAlertWX photos and videos from viewers in northeast Florida and southeastern Georgia.
In his free time you will find Garrett exploring northeast Florida, checking out community events, visiting family and friends, following his favorite sports teams, and talking about his favorite subject: weather.
