Ulises joined WBKB in September 2016. Originally from Miami, FL, but had previously lived in Tallahassee, FL, while there he attended Florida State University and received his bachelors in meteorology, with a minor in mathematics.His passion for meteorology started in the 1st grade and since then, his love for weather grew, especially with tropical weather. Ulises essentially confirmed his decision to pursue meteorology as a career during the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons.
In college he completed two internships, first in the field of operational meteorology, as a student trainee for SCEP (Student Career Experience Program) at the National Weather Service in Miami, FL, launching weather balloons and taking weather observations. Ulises completed his second internship as a broadcast meteorologist at WTVJ in Miramar, FL.
While residing in Tallahassee as both a student and alumni he actively participated in the North Florida Chapter of the American Meteorological Society. He forecast for FSU Weather, a student run 30 minute weeknight weather show on FSU Campus and with fellow FSU students, providing live updates for severe weather in North Florida, and South Georgia in February and Hurricane Hermine.
In his free time, he enjoys watching comedies, bowling, ultimate Frisbee, and of course his passion in meteorology. He enjoys following the Seminoles, and the Miami pro teams, especially the Dolphins, Heat, and Marlins. He is excited to explore Alpena and Michigan as well as looking forward to experiencing and forecasting winter weather for the first time.
