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 Bachelor of Science from the University of Texas at Austin and a Certificate of Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. Today, you can find him covering the latest storms with the Spectrum News weather team.
For Burton, reporting the weather on Spectrum News allows him to take a personal approach by combining strong scientific analysis while using his real-life personality to connect with viewers on how the weather will impact their daily lives.
When Burton isn’t informing the city of Austin about the latest weather patterns, you can find him spending time outdoors next to his BBQ pit, listening to live music with friends, or enjoying the view from his telescope under the stars.
Burton is a member of the National Weather Association and American Meteorological Society.
