James Aydelott, FOX23 Severe Weather Team

James Aydelott

James grew up in Tulsa and has always been fascinated by the severe weather that seems to hit Tulsa with fearsome regularity.

James is an instrument-rated pilot and enjoys flying his Cessna Cardinal. James and his wife Robyn have two children and a golden retriever, Mia, who also loves to fly.

He also likes to cook and has even been a celebrity chef in Tulsa’s own Chef Fest.

James’s dad piled the family in the station wagon and toured the damage after each round of severe weather, and all that destruction made quite an impression on young James.

After graduating from Tulsa ‘s East Central High School, James headed to the University of Oklahoma and graduated with a degree in meteorology.

James has worked in Sherman, TX, Savannah, GA, Wichita, KS, Dallas, TX and in Tulsa, seeing and forecasting everything from tornadoes to hurricanes to blizzards. He has years of tornado chasing experience and is a severe weather and Doppler radar expert.
