Scott Sistek
Staff Meteorologist, Web Content Producer

Scott is not only the staff meteorologist for KOMONews.com, but is also a content producer for the entire KOMOnews.com site.

Scott also writes and maintains the Partly to Mostly Bloggin' weather blog both here at KOMO and at our sister station in Portland, KATU.com.

Scott graduated from the University of Washington in 1994 with a degree in Atmospheric Sciences and has been at KOMO in some shape or form ever since (but mostly as a person). He started as their weather producer working with Steve Pool in the evenings, and eventually became a Web site manager.

But he still gets to dabble in weather -- especially when Mother Nature gets a little busy and the on-air weather folks can use an extra hand. He'll also occasionally write weather- or science-related news stories for the Web site. He's also done some freelance work and graphic design for the company that provides our on-air weather graphics.

And now, Scott's a published author. He co-wrote the book "Somewhere I Was Right" with Steve Pool -- a fun look at the zaniness that is Northwest Weather. You can find more information about the book at www.stevepool.com.

He's originally from Port Angeles, but lived in several places along the Pacific Coast as the son of a Coast Guard search and rescue pilot before returning to the Seattle area in 1990. He's a big Mariners' fan -- that's how he met his wife Michelle -- and loves fantasy baseball. (He welcomes any drafting tips or hot prospect information you might have.)

Scott's not on TV, but you can occasionally hear him on KOMO 1000 News when the weather is ornery, or even sometimes see the back of his head when Steve is live in the weather center (or, it might be an intern. No, Scott doesn't change his hair color every day). He did land a starring role in the movie "Life or Something Like It", which was the Angelina Jolie movie filmed in KOMO's newsroom, as "Head Behind Computer Monitor Number 12" for six seconds in one of the newsroom scenes.

He's married with two young daughters, Shealynn (Shea) and Scarlett.
