Bill Alexander is the chief meteorologist for Newscenter25. He joined the team in the middle of August 2009 after having a long career with the National Weather Service (NWS). While with the government, Bill earned two Department of Commerce Bronze medals, one for redesigned severe weather warnings and the other for exceptional work during the disastrous El Paso flash floods of 2006. He served at NWS Headquarters, running the national severe local storms and flash flood programs, and led the Hurricane Andrew Disaster Survey Team. In Alaska, he ran the national Volcanic Ash program, and then became the Meteorologist in Charge for the El Paso Area Weather Forecast Office. Bill holds the National Weather Association Seal of Approval, the American Meteorological Society’s Radio Seal of Approval, and the prestigious American Meteorological Society’s Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) designation.
Bill enjoys the Victoria Crossroads area because of the friendly people and the cross-cultural, multi-generational environment. There are many things to do, places to go, and people of interest. Every day, Bill has the chance to interact with Victorians who invariably ask about the weather. His diverse and lengthy background means he will usually have the answer they need.
Bill grew up on the Texas coast, having been born in Houston and raised in Corpus Christi. He received his meteorology education at Texas A&M University. Bill is married and has one grown son.
