Josh's passion for weather began at a very young age. Experiencing tornado-warned supercells and major snowstorms in Eastern PA furthered his interest. He enjoyed creating hand-drawn forecasts of his own in his pre-teen years. By the time Josh was 12, he owned his first weather website and often posted forecasts for the Northeast US. At 13, he joined popular weather page based in York, PA, eventually parting ways in 2015.

Josh is currently a freshman in college and the owner of Pennsylvania Weather Action, LLC.
