Conley came to Central Texas and the First Alert 25 Storm Team in December 2008. He looks forward to providing the best severe weather coverage in Central Texas.
Conley grew up in the Fort Worth area and was fascinated with weather at an early age. It was the hail storm of May '95 that made him want to become a TV meteorologist. He took that passion to Texas A&M University where he received his B.S. in Meteorology. While in college, Conley had the opportunity to storm chase and loves to track severe storms.
His first job was in the Brazos Valley at KBTX. While there, he covered all kinds of weather including major flood events and Hurricane Rita. From there, he traveled to East Texas to the town of Lufkin, where he was the Chief Meteorologist for KTRE-TV from 2005 to 2008. Conley spent over two days on air covering Hurricane Ike and it was an experience he will never forget.
Conley has storm chased in Central Texas for the past few years and has seen numerous severe weather events. One of the biggest was the major flooding event from the remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine in September 2010. Conley was in Salado tracking the levels of the creeks and witnessed how fast the waters rose, flooding out homes and businesses. By streaming live video back to the weather team and the National Weather Service in Fort Worth, he was able to alert the public sooner with life saving information.
Conley has been designated a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist by the American Meteorological Society. Severe weather is his number one priority so you can trust that the First Alert 25 weather team will be there anytime severe weather threatens.
The First Alert Meteorologists earned the "StormReady" designation issued by the National Weather Service in April 2012. KXXV was the first station in Texas to earn this title.
His lovely wife Stacy is from Central Texas and they are excited to be close to family. They look forward to making Central Texas their home.
