Avery Tomasco is a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist for CBS Austin News, and you’ll regularly find him covering the weekend evening shows… 6 p.m & 10 p.m. on Saturdays, and 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Sundays… Unless it’s football season, in which case your guess is as good as ours.

Avery is Houston born and Austin raised, attending Eanes Elementary, Hill Country middle school and Westlake High School. All the while, a nerdy love for the wild weather in Texas was brewing with every passing winter/ severe weather event. The decision to pursue a meteorology degree at Texas A&M was an easy one, though the passion for TV weather would come during his senior year at Westlake.

During a career day event, Avery had the opportunity to visit CBS Austin News (back when it was still KEYE news) to meet with then Chief Meteorologist Troy Kimmel. Through more encounters and conversation with Troy, the drive to become a Broadcast Meteorologist grew.
