Tom Moore, Meteorologist

Tom Moore, Senior Meteorologist

Tom has been a weather fanatic since the age of 7. During his school years growing up in Rome, New York, Tom won numerous awards for his meteorology exhibitions at science fairs, including the prestigious Navy Science Cruiser Award. Tom went on to study meteorology and geography in college and received undergraduate degrees from both S.U.N.Y.-Oswego and the University of Maryland. He also attended graduate school at George Mason University. When The Weather Channel launched in 1982, Tom was one of the first employees through the door. During his more than 30-year tenure at The Weather Channel, Tom held a variety of positions. For about a decade, he was one of the regularly featured on-camera meteorologists; he was subsequently promoted into a leadership role as an on-camera Meteorology Supervisor. Tom later held the positions of Consultation Meteorologist and Lead Meteorologist during his three decades at TWC. Tom has appeared on ABC World News Tonight, NBC Nightly News, the Today Show, the Fox News Network, and Geraldo. He has been a radio guest on ESPN, the Moody Network, CBC (Canada), BBC (UK), and RTE (Ireland), and he has written expert meteorological content published by both Weather.com and The Capital Weather Gaing/Washington Post.

Jeff Haby, Meteorologist

Jeff Haby (aka Habytime) holds a bachelor's and master's degree in meteorology. Jeff has been fascinated by weather from an early age, beginning with a memorable, violent thunderstorm in the Dallas, TX area. As a child, Jeff was further inspired by watching Dallas' highly respected television forecasters, including Troy Dungan and Harold Taft, and many hours spent watching the Weather Channel. Into his teenage years and early adulthood, Jeff never had any doubts about his passion and career goals. Ultimately, Jeff completed the mathematically and physically rigorous coursework in meteorology at the University of Oklahoma; upon graduation, he matriculated to Mississippi State University where he completed his graduate studies in operational meteorology. As a professional meteorologist, Jeff is devoted to educating college students and the general public about atmospheric science, especially severe weather, synoptic meteorology, atmospheric thermodynamics, and weather analysis/forecasting. Jeff’s students often comment that he has a unique talent for explaining complex meteorological concepts in an understandable and applicable way. Jeff will join the iWeatherNet team, bringing his invaluable experience in operational meteorology, academia, and hundreds of technical/educational writings. Jeff will be a contributor at iWeatherNet, helping to expand the educational content on iWeatherNet.com. Jeff currently resides in Colorado Springs, Colorado and is fascinated with the wild Colorado weather including snow storms, hail storms, severe convection, and very dynamic weather events and the drastic weather changes that they bring.

Cassie McQueary, Human Resource/Public Relations Officer and Social Media Administrator

Cassie McQueary is a human resource/public relations officer and social media administrator for iWeatherNet. Cassie is also the founder of DFW Storm Support, a networking group for those who suffer severe storm anxiety.  She is a devoted mother of two and wife.  She was born and raised in Texas where she has lived her entire life. She studied 3 years of sign language, enjoys writing, and loves science & nature; Cassie loves weather and is intrigued by the atmosphere's predictability through complex mathematics. She was drawn to iWeatherNet because of Chris Robbins' forecasting style. Cassie remarked, "he doesn't hype his forecasts or use dramatic wording that would scare those of us with storm phobias; if he mentions 'tornadoes' in a forecast -- it means something. Conversely, when he doesn't use such terms while the others in town are, that also means something, and we notice those subtleties." She loves to help others, and always tries to lend an ear to those who suffer from storm anxiety.
