Bailey’s interest in weather can be traced back to his early childhood. According to his parents, he could be seen standing at a window watching thunderstorms and snowstorms for hours on end. This began when he was just two years old and his fascination with the weather continued to grow over the years.
He went to his nearby library in Salyersville, where he grew up, and looked at each climate book they had. At the point when he was a fifth-grader, his journey to turn into a Television Meteorologist began. That is the moment that he was chosen as a climate watcher for his old neighborhood.
The individual who was liable for his choice was as a matter of fact his family’s late companion Brian Collins. During his free time and not doing weather, chances are you will find him cheering on his favorite sports teams.
