In this episode of Mississippi Stories, Mississippi Today Editor-at-Large Marshall Ramsey sits down with outgoing WLBT Meteorologist Patrick Ellis. Ellis, who will still be seen by many Mississippi Today readers who live in the Memphis broadcast area, will be going to WMC as their weekday morning forecaster.

He talks about his love of weather, his six years in the Jackson market and what’s ahead for this talented forecaster. He overcame his childhood fear of thunderstorms to pursue a career in meteorology and broadcasting after graduating from Mississippi State University’s highly touted meteorology program.
