Here’s more information about Paul Deanno


Paul Deanno, author of Wow! Weather!

Meteorologist Paul Deanno has won five Emmy Awards for his work as a broadcast meteorologist in some of the largest television markets in the country. He is also the first broadcast meteorologist to do the weather on all three network morning newscasts: Good Morning America (ABC), The Today Show (NBC), and CBS This Morning.

Paul has literally spanned the globe covering the weather. He’s flown with the Hurricane Hunters, hiked deep into Glacier National Park to investigate global warming’s impact on the ecosystem there, and he’s broadcasted from the middle of the Atlantic Ocean on board the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier for a report on how the military creates its forecasts.

Paul’s favorite part of his job, however, is spending time with students at local elementary schools. That’s the place where he has the most fun sharing his passion for the weather. That’s also the reason why Paul started researching the amazing weather facts he used in his first book, “WOW! Weather!“. Paul currently works in San Francisco and lives in the Bay Area with his beautiful wife and three boys.
