Mark was born and raised in Corpus Christi, where hurricanes made a big impression on him – especially Hurricane Celia in 1970. "I wanted to learn how nature takes sunshine, air and water and creates lightning and 150-plus mph winds," he says. Mark Rowlett returned to Texas in August 2009 to join KTXS as chief meteorologist.
