Alberto Romero has known he wanted to be a meteorologist since he was eight years old.
That's when Hurricane Andrew struck Miami, devastating the city where Alberto grew up.
He was inspired to learn the ins and outs of weather, so he could give people potentially life-saving information about storms.
That's why he joined the U.S. Air Force as a battlefield weather airman.
Alberto proudly served for eight years, earning many awards and accolades. Some of his proudest moments came when he served two tours in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom.
Alberto was embedded with Army combat brigades to forecast weather for critical missions, troop movement and air assets, earning him two Army commendation medals and an Army Combat Action Badge.
Among his most memorable moments stateside, he issued a tornado warning for President George W. Bush at Crawford Ranch in Texas and earned a Humanitarian Service Medal for his relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
After his time in the service, Alberto forecasted weather for the entire Lone Star state at TXCN (Texas Cable News), a state-wide a 24-hour cable station based in Dallas. He was also a severe weather analyst for CBS 19's sister station in Dallas, WFAA.
Alberto attended Mississippi State University.
He is the proud father of an eight-year-old daughter. His family resides in Fort Worth.
Alberto is excited to live and work in East Texas. He would love to hear from you and see your weather pics!
