Andy Weingarten joined the WAVE 3 Storm Tracking Team in August 2003. He serves as Saturday evening meteorologist and fills in when needed during the week.
Andy was born and raised in Louisville and is a 1979 graduate of Ballard High School. His interest in meteorology was cemented after the April 3, 1974 super outbreak of tornadoes.
Andy attended the University of Oklahoma to attain a degree in meteorology.
Andy started his broadcast career in the heart of Tornado Alley, spending two years in St. Joseph, MO and 11 years in Topeka, KS before returning to Louisville in 1997 as the weekend meteorologist at WHAS.
Andy left the broadcast industry in 2002 to try his hand as a meteorologist in the energy industry. From that, he has built his own weather consulting firm that includes as clients two Fortune 500 companies and a power broker firm in Norway.
When he is not working, Andy is an avid college sports fan of both the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville. He is also an avid golfer, but to date his handicap on the course is his swing.
Andy has been married to his wife Lee Ann for 21 years and has two daughters, Jennifer and Katie.
