Monticello HS Student Functions as In-House Weather Man

Posted: Updated:

A Monticello High School student is tracking the snow and alerting his teachers and classmates ahead of the storm. Jack Maxwell started the Monticello Weather Center website, Facebook page, and Twitter account.

Maxwell is known as "the weather specialist" around school. He updates MHS faculty and his peers of upcoming weather and sends out text alerts with the forecast.

Maxwell, a sophomore, and his fellow weather buffs are prepared for a busy Wednesday with the impending snow.

"We'll be working. I have a couple of my weather consultants helping me work around the clock to get all of it together. It's tricky. It always changes every 2 minutes and stuff," said Maxwell.

Maxwell says weather has been his passion since elementary school.

You can follow the Monticello High School Weather Center on Twitter, @mhsweather16, and Facebook.

Maxwell is predicting one foot of snow to fall on Wednesday.
