Posted: Updated:

Zack Mehalski joined the First Warn 5 Weather Team in the spring of 2016 as a fill-in Meteorologist. He was born and raised in Saginaw and still resides in the Mid-Michigan area. He is excited to be forecasting for the station he watched when he was growing up, and to be following in the footsteps of his idols Mike Hoffman and Brian Wood.

As a lifelong resident of the area, Zack remembers the major weather events that have occurred here in his lifetime, including the flood of 1986 and the May 1998 derecho. Those events along with his love of snowstorm forecasting and “chasing” are what molded his passion for meteorology.

Zack is a 1998 graduate of Arthur Hill High School. From there, he went on to earn a teaching degree from Saginaw Valley State University. He also holds a Master Degree in both Early Childhood Education and Public Administration. He presently teaches sixth grade social studies at White Pine Middle School in Saginaw Township.

Several years ago, Zack decided to pursue a degree in meteorology. He has recently wrapped up his studies at Mississippi State University, graduating in August 2016.
