Nash Rhodes

Nash Rhodes was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, and recently completed degrees in Meteorology, Journalism, and Business at The University of Oklahoma in 2021. Having had one of the few tornado shelters in the neighborhood, his family hosted many severe weather get-togethers, which led to Nash’s early interest in storms.

While in college, he earned his Certificate of Intelligence Studies for his research in communication through the analysis of meteorological intelligence. His research has been presented at the 6th Annual Intelligence and National Security Symposium at OU and conferences through the American Meteorology Society. Through this research, he discovered unique ways to utilize social media location services in conjunction with radar products to obtain visual confirmation of breaking severe weather events. This led to an internship with the CNN World Weather team where his radar explainers and many of his cleared severe weather videos would be used on CNN, CNN International, and HLN.

Along the way, Rhodes would partner with Radarscope for four years to create Doppler radar explainer videos for severe weather events. His videos have garnered millions of impressions and aided in bridging the gap between meteorologists and the public during severe weather events.

Nash worked part-time at WNKY-TV in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and received the National Weather Association’s only 2021 Broadcast Meteorology Scholarship for his work in the field. He joined the WINK Weather Team in June and is excited to provide Southwest Floridians with an accurate forecast each morning to plan out their day.
