Meteorologist Scot Pilie’ joined the WGNO Weather Team in May of 2019, and he is ecstatic to be back in his hometown of New Orleans! Scot is an alum of Jesuit High School New Orleans, and he received his Bachelor’s degree from Mississippi State University in Professional Broadcast Meteorology. Scot
is also AMS Seal Certified in Meteorology and weather forecasting.
Scot knew he wanted to become an on-air meteorologist from a very
early age, as he distinctively remembers spending numerous childhood days on the New Orleans Lakefront holding a hand-held wind gauge during thunderstorms, tropical storms, and hurricanes.
When Scot isn’t forecasting the weather, you can often find him
enjoying local festivals, running outdoors, and playing on the tennis court! Scot is also a huge fan of the New Orleans Saints, the Mississippi State Bulldogs, and the LSU Tigers.
