Pat Cavlin joined the KHOU11 Weather Team in March of 2022.
Originally from the New York City area, Pat received his B.S. in meteorology from SUNY Oswego in 2013. As a child, nor’easter snowstorms first sparked Pat’s interest in weather, but his passion for forecasting severe storms came from two storm chasing trips that he did with his college. The most influential trip was in May/June of 2013, where he saw his first tornado in Bennington, KS, chased the largest tornado on record in El Reno, OK, and witnessed one of the most well-photographed supercell thunderstorms in Booker, TX.
Pat's career in television has taken him from Macon, Georgia, to his hometown station of News 12 Long Island, to Fort Myers, Florida, most recently. Forecasting for these areas has given him experience in almost every type of weather imaginable, from tornado outbreaks to snowstorms and hurricanes - a valuable background needed for Houston.
In addition to his love for weather, Pat used to be a volunteer EMT in his hometown fire department on Long Island in New York and has had his pilot's license since April of 2015. Pat is excited to explore Texas the fastest way he knows how - by air; and cannot wait to dig into Houston's vibrant food scene.
You can watch Pat Cavlin on KHOU11 every Saturday night at 6pm and 10pm and Sunday night at 5:30pm and 10pm.
