Chief Meteorologist Shel Winkley joined the PinPoint Weather Team in 2009. Being a former KBTX intern, after graduating from Texas A&M University in 2007 with a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Meteorology, Shel took off to the CBS affiliate in Amarillo. He is a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist, member of the American Meteorological Society, and a past chair for the Board of Broadcast Meteorology.
As a child, Shel was terrified of severe weather and tornadoes. However, several years and small Texas towns later, that fear transformed into a passion and he has been hooked on weather ever since.
Shel feels privileged to be a part of the KBTX weather team as well as being able to bring you the weather every day. His goal, before retirement, is to have the opportunity to fly through the eye of a hurricane.
He and his wife Elizabeth spend plenty of time trying to keep up with their two daughters and son. Shel always looks forward to hearing and meeting folks from across the area and loves to find new ways to be involved in and give back to the Brazos Valley.
