Chip Maxham

Chip is the Chief Meteorologist at WETM. His career as a TV meteorologist has given him the opportunity to make forecasts in all kinds of climates across the country from the desert southwest to east coast.
He has given live reports out in the field in a variety of weather extremes, from enduring near-blizzard conditions in a powerful Virginia snowstorm to pointing out rotation in the clouds seconds before a tornado touched down during Hurricane Rita's rampage through Mississippi. But, his respect for the devastating power of the weather was cemented when he took on the role of lead forecaster in Wichita Falls, Texas through a spring tornado season. Predicting and tracking severe storms in the evenings to keep viewers informed and safe was a challenge that sharpened his skills as a meteorologist.
Chip was born in Lynchburg, Virginia and earned a Bachelor's degree in Earth and Atmospheric Science at Georgia Tech. After that, he enrolled at Florida State University and was awarded his Master's Degree in Meteorology, specializing in hurricanes making landfall. His expertise and experience has allowed him to earn the American Meteorological Society's highly regarded Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation.
Every weeknight, you can get Chip's forecasts on WETM-TV at 5, 6 and 11 and at 10 on WETM 2. Chip is married with a daughter and three dogs. He and his family are happy to be in such a friendly, welcoming area.

"Winds will be blowing at around 15 or 20 miles an hour, and it'll drop wind chills below zero by the evening hours (Thursday night)," said Chip Maxham, chief meteorologist for WETM Channel 18 News. "And into early Friday, there could be wind chills of 15 to 20 degrees below zero." Maxham is predicting an overnight low of minus 3, with some light flurries or snow showers Friday morning.

Friday's high is expected to reach only 10 degrees, Maxham says. Saturday will be a bit warmer, with a high of 19 and an inch or two of snow, but "then we repeat the process," he said. After the snow showers move through, another Arctic blast will follow, bringing overnight lows of -2 on Saturday. Sunday's high will be only 5 degrees, and some places in upstate New York such as the Catskills and Adirondacks may stay below zero all day Sunday. Temperatures in the Corning area are expected to drop to minus 7 early Monday morning. Another snowstorm may arrive here on Tuesday, Maxham said, but he said it was too early to predict snowfall totals.

The Corning-Elmira area will be on the fringe of the nor'easter moving up the East Coast, but will likely get 2 to 4 inches of snow Thursday, said Chip Maxham, meteorologist for the WETM Channel 18 News Storm Team. Maxham says the track of the nor'easter has been difficult to project, so snowfall totals are hard to predict. "But I'm fairly confident we'll see some snow," Maxham said. Much heavier snowfall is expected east of Binghamton, but Maxham says his "best guess" is 2 to 4 inches locally. Snow showers will likely begin around 8 a.m. or 9 a.m. Thursday, and continue throughout the day, he said.

According to Chip Maxham, meteorologist for the WETM Channel 18 News Storm Team, conditions will begin to improve. There will likely be some sunshine Thursday and Friday, Maxham said. A storm expected this weekend won't bring nearly as much snow as was initially thought possible, he added.
