Zach joined the WTVY 4WARN Storm Team in December 2020. Zach is from west Tennessee, happy to be back in the south. He is enjoying everything the Wiregrass has to offer. Zach got his interest of weather from a very young age, experiencing a tornado in middle Tennessee back in the 1990s. After earning his meteorology degree at the University of Tennessee at Martin, he quickly got to work. Since the start of his career, he has worked in the Mississippi Delta and Central Illinois. Besides being a fan of the warmer weather in southeastern Alabama, he enjoys being in the great outdoors. You can find Zach and his wife, Shanell, walking and hiking trails in the Wiregrass, and also checking out the wide variety of restaurants in the area. Zach and Shanell are expecting their first bundle of joy in the spring of 2021! Feel free to reach out to Zach on his facebook page, Meteorologist Zach Hatcher. He loves to see any cool weather pictures and hear your questions.
