Guest Speaker – April 9th, 2019

Matt Moreland is currently the Supervisory Meteorologist at the National Weather Service San Diego office, and have been in this new role since October 2017.  Prior to this position, I served as supervisor at the NWS Office in Key West from April 2015 through September 2017.  My last month there was Hurricane Irma, where I worked 28 days in a row then happily drove cross-country to California :).  Prior to these positions, I was an Emergency Response Specialist at the NWS New Orleans/Baton Rouge office for 3 1/2 years, and a forecaster at the NWS Houston/Galveston office for almost 14 years.  I’m best known in my career for working hurricanes (Rita, Ike, Isaac are some examples), but I came out here to “mostly” escape them.  My hometown is Houston, Texas and I am a graduate of the University of Oklahoma.  I am a four year Rotarian:  first at the Key West Sunrise Rotary Club and now at San Diego Downtown Breakfast Club.  My main hobbies are running and travel.
