With 14 years of on-air forecasting experience, Chad Evans returns as WLFI's chief meteorologist after working in the role early 2009 to mid-2015.

"We had opportunities to go elsewhere, but this was the best place to work and the best community to raise a family. It has so much to offer," Chad explains after working as the chief meteorologist as Evansville WEVV-TV for three years. "We are about happiness & quality of life from a personal and professional standpoint and this was where we want to be."

Chad, originally from southwestern Indiana's Daviess County, has strong Hoosier roots with a strong interest in Midwest weather, climate and "all facets of the natural world". A 10-year 4-H'r and four-year FFA member, he has great support for these organizations and a love for agriculture and agriculture education to youth.

Following Indiana State University, he worked in Terre Haute and Evansville television as a meteorologist, excluding his work here at WLFI.

Chad is married to Liz and they have two children, Hadley and Ryland. Also, an Alaskan Husky named Balto.

He has lots of interests including native landscaping, gardening, climate and wildfire reconstruction based on tree rings, weather history and as he says, "anything that concerns the weather or Earth". Of course, being Hoosier, he loves basketball.

He is an active blogger 24/7 for all things weather. You can check that out here: http://www.wlfi.com/weather/weather-blog-18/
