Firsthand Weather is a weather forecasting site that is maintained by a group of meteorology students and meteorologists. We began as a small weather blogging site in July 2010, and today, Firsthand Weather is a well-respected weather site that receives hundreds of thousands of page views each year and has attained a large following across the different social media platforms. As we continue to grow, we have been able to expand our coverage across various regions of the United States and around the globe.

Firsthand Weather began in the small bedroom of an individual named Matthew Holliday, who has had a passion for meteorology his entire life. With the help of two other individuals, Matthew was able to turn a big dream into a reality. Firsthand Weather’s founder and current CEO mostly resides in Starkville, MS, where he is completing his master’s degree in meteorology and climatology at Mississippi State University. He attained two degrees at the University of Oklahoma, one in meteorology and the other in GIS.
