Meteorologist Ray Petelin joined the KDKA Weather Team in October of 2018, but is no stranger to the weather in Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania. He has been forecasting in Pittsburgh since 2011 and in Western PA since January of 2003.

Ray has worked forecasting weather from Parkersburg, WV to Erie, PA, and is well seasoned with the Pittsburgh region’s micro-climates and lake effect snow. He likes to say he slid into Pittsburgh on a lake effect snow band and never left!

He holds seals of approval from both the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association and calls Meteorology is the “family business” because his father is also a meteorologist.

When Ray is not tracking the weather, he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter. The Petelins have a cat and two rescue dogs, so they spend a lot of time outside and love exploring different parks and places in Western PA. Ray also enjoys brewing beer, fishing, hiking, taking naps and obsessing about the weather.
