Title: Meteorologist

Anthony Copeland joined the WEVV Storm Team 44 in April 2019 as a meteorologist. He joins the team after serving as a weather intern in Charlotte, NC.

Originally from Memphis, TN he is no stranger to severe weather. In fact, his original interest in meteorology was sparked at the age of 14 when his community was impacted by the 2008 Super Tuesday Tornado outbreak.

Anthony began his educational career at the University of Memphis (Go Tigers!) where he majored in Communications/Multimedia Journalism and became a member of National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ). He then decided to compound his broadcasting expertise by pursuing a second degree in Geoscience/Meteorology through Mississippi State University.

While a little far from home, Anthony looks forward to getting involved in the community and bonding with locals over a couple of things that Hoosiers and Memphians have in common—a love of basketball and fried food! In his spare time he enjoys being in the kitchen; either making his world famous hot wings or baking muffins! When he’s not tracking storms and cooking, Anthony enjoys working out, running, and dabbles in photography—he’s not a bad spades partner either.

You can catch his forecast midday Monday-Wednesday and also weekend evenings at 9 and 10 p.m.

It was another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs peaked in the mid to low 90s for our third straight day with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 100° at times earlier on. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. Winds shifting southward overnight will only allow temperatures to fall as low as the mid to low 70s throughout the Ohio Valley; we'll kick off what may end up being our hottest day in years with a morning low temperature of 73° in Evansville.
