Adam McWilliams is the weekend morning meteorologist for 16 WAPT News.
Adam is a Jackson native and is an alum of Hillcrest Christian School.
He’s excited to be in his hometown to live out his dream job forecasting weather for Central Mississippi. Adam's fascination with weather started when he went through a tornado when he was 3 years old.
In school, Adam gave a weather report every day for his class from 1st grade through high school!
He started his professional career with a weather internship with Chief meteorologist David Hartman when he was 16 years old.
In 2012 Adam graduated from Mississippi State with a degree in Broadcast Meteorology. The same year he won 2012 Associated Press Best College TV Weathercaster.
Before working at 16 WAPT, Adam was the weekend meteorologist and reporter at WXVT-TV in Greenville, MS.
When Adam is not forecasting the weather, you can find him outdoors, or traveling to historic places around the state and country. If you would like Adam to come speak to your class or group, just e-mail Adam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
