to know and trust Adam in his eight years and counting with the weather authority.”
From the devastating 2012 floods to ice storms, Lorch has forecasted all sorts of
weather events across the Northland.
“I was only six months into the job when the historic flood hit,“ Lorch said. “Since then
I've covered everything from derechos and flooding to blizzards and ice storms. The
weather here can change in an instant and that’s why I love forecasting here.”
In his spare time, you will find Lorch fishing, hunting and camping in the BWCA.
“I love living in Duluth and all the outdoors activities this region offers. I couldn’t be
More excited to continue my career here,” Lorch said.
