Dr. Greg Postel Career

Postel serves at The Weather Channel in Woodstock, Georgia as a Hurricane and Storm Specialist.┬áHis obsession with the sky started early in life, like many weather fans. But it wasn’t a specific storm that had him hooked; it was the weather of daily life. “Wind blowing through the trees captured my imagination from day one, literally.

I could waste endless hours watching the anemometer dial in my room, wondering how high it would go, no joke. Afternoon naps on the back porch as an infant may have had everything to do with that.” Perhaps not surprisingly, it was his installing meteorological equipment in his backyard and maintaining regular temperature records.

Dr. Postel was lucky that a famous weather historian lived just down the lane. Greg was mentored early on by David Ludlum, who founded Weatherwise magazine and worked during World War II as a lead forecaster for the Allied Powers.

He not only told interesting stories about the past’s great weather activities but also inspired me to look ahead in meteorology for the future. Basically, he instructed me to get my undergraduate degree in Math and Physics, and then go to graduate school. But I’ve done it.

A keen interest in tropical weather led Dr. Postel to a post-doctoral position as a scientist in Wisconsin, where he researched tropical cyclone formation from African wave disturbances. Greg and his family were driven to Kansas City by a decade-long tenure in the weather futures market, where he helped steer weather risk management activities, concentrating on weather predictability and expected volatility. And most recently, in Lawrence, Kansas, he was the “Tropical Weather Expert” for the Capital Weather Gang of the Washington Post and an on-camera meteorologist.

When coming to his education, he earned an M.S. and Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Madison after graduating in mathematics at college. There, he studied everything he could get his hands on.

Greg tracked tornadoes and hurricanes when not hitting the books, sometimes traveling thousands of miles for a single storm. “There were a good two decades where I logged a lot of miles. But I really learned a lot about monitoring from experts in the area, starting with my brief period in the late 1980s as an undergraduate at Oklahoma.
