Burton Fitzsimmons was born and raised in San Antonio, where he grew up watching storm clouds develop and change from the hilltop view of his childhood house. Burton's passion for weather eventually earned him a Certificate of Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University and a Bachelor of Science from the University of Texas. Today, you can find him covering the latest storms with the Spectrum News Austin weather team.
For Burton, reporting the forecasts on Spectrum News allows him to take a personal approach by combining strong scientific analysis while using his real-life personality to connect with the viewers on how the weather will impact their daily lives.
When Burton isn’t informing the city of Austin with about the latest weather patterns, you can find him practicing the piano, spending time in the great outdoors, or preparing for his next big storm chase.
