AJ Willy grew up in Virginia, but always knew he wanted to forecast in Florida and track tropical weather.
AJ is the weekend meteorologist for the 6 and 11 pm newscasts and reports during the week. He graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Meteorology and Hampden-Sydney College with a Bachelor's Degree in Biology. He feels that his time at FSU have really prepared him for forecasting Florida's weather and his biology background will help to continue the "Whats Growing On" segment.
When he was a young kid watching a storm on his back porch with his mom, AJ witnessed lightning strike a tree in his backyard and has been fascinated with the weather ever since. Virginia has a wide variety of weather, but his passion was always severe and tropical weather. The challenge of forecasting the sea breeze and tropical storms during the summer or the possibility of freezes in the winter really excites AJ. He is thrilled to be a part of the North Central Florida Community and join the WCJB-TV20 News Team.
In his spare time, AJ loves to play golf and visit Disney World with his wife. You can follow AJ on twitter @AJWillyWX and dont forget to say hi if you see him around town or on the golf course!
