About The Greater Dayton Weather Post And Me, Devontae Jackson

Hello everyone, I’m Devontae Jackson, CEO, lead weather forecaster, and founder for GWDP. I started this blog when I was 16 years old, I go to David H. Ponitz CTC in Dayton, OH. I am in the Radio and TV division at my school, this website is not a school project and I’m not getting paid to do this. This website was solely created by me because I like to forecast the weather. I like to call it my company, or again it’s known as The Greater Dayton Weather Post. Big thanks to my radio teacher Ms. V for helping me with the name and deciding between names for my website. I would like to go to college to become a degreed meteorologist, particularly at schools like Ohio State University, Pennsylvania State University, Oklahoma University in Norman, OK, or the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Also a quick fact for you all, I am the radio station manager of 89. 5 FM WDPS, a jazz radio station owned by my school district. I have had job shadows at WHIO, WDTN, and at The National Weather Service in Wilmington, OH.

What is my goal for this website? My goal for this website is for it to become another reliable source of weather for the Greater Dayton area and the Miami Valley area. I only pass along alert information issued by the National Weather Service (NWS) and try to give you the best information I can with the information I have for weather alerts and forecasts. I cover severe weather, winter weather, and provide daily weather updates every day on my website. I cover nine counties in Ohio, those counties include Butler, Clark, Clinton, Darke, Greene, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Warren counties. Some cities covered in those counties include Dayton, Eaton, Greenville, Hamilton, Lebanon, Springfield, Troy, Xenia, and Wilmington. Also, of course, I cover the communities that surround the main cities I cover. Well, I hope you enjoy the website and enjoyed learning a little more about me, come back and visit my website sometime.
