Scott Mace has covered weather from the ground up.
He has forecasted weather with satellite, radar and computer model data in addition to reporting about crippling blizzards and deadly tornadoes. Scott reported live shortly after one such tornado struck Windsor, Colorado in the spring of 2008. The EF-3 tornado tore a quarter-mile wide path through the heart of the Colorado town.
For the past four years Scott has been the morning and weekend meteorologist at KMGH-TV in Denver, Colorado, one of the most difficult areas to forecast weather.
No stranger to California, Scott gained intimate knowledge of Central Coast microclimates while forecasting weather for 8 years at KSBW-TV in Salinas, CA. While there, Scott experienced every kind of Central California weather from the foggy 'Marine Layer' to a storm system that produced 24 consecutive hours of lightning and sparked huge wildfires near Big Sur, CA. He knows it can even snow nearly all the way down from the coastal mountains to the beaches!
Originally from Colorado, Scott came to California to learn how to race cars at Sears Point Raceway (now Infineon Raceway) in Sonoma County and had his 'eureka!' moment finding the state had so much to offer. He became the morning meteorologist at KSBW-TV covering the Monterey Bay where he found the love of his life, his wife Melanie, who was a traffic reporter at the time. The couple's beautiful daughter, Makayla makes every day a joy!
Scott feels extremely proud to be back in 'The Golden State'. "California is my adopted home state.", said Mace. "My wife and I have a little place in Lake County just north of the Napa Valley. It's a very special place that's been in her family for six generations."
"I forecasted Central California weather for eight years when I lived in Monterey," said Mace. "I know how important the weather and climate is to Californians. Most people from other parts of the U.S don't understand how much food is grown here; how much industry is here. Water is always an issue and that means that rainfall and mountain snowpack are always an issue. Water is the lifeblood of the West. We've seen the climate changing right before our eyes. Climate scientists have told us that the weather will become more extreme in the coming years. Drought is expected to intensify in the western U.S. while individual storms may become more violent. California is a wonderful state. It has a mystique that few other places can claim. I've been blessed to live and work in Colorado near my family and California near my wife's family. Now I'm happy to say I'm a Californian again."
