Megan Murat joined the KTXS Storm Alert weather team in February 2017. You can see her forecasts on the weekends and see her reporting on weekdays. She was born and raised in Sugar Land, TX.
Megan grew up terrified of weather after a funnel cloud near her home ripped through the local mall. Those fears eventually turned to fascination and interest as she got older and experienced more weather events.
Megan holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology from Texas A&M University with a minor in Environmental Geoscience. During her time in College Station, she was involved in TAMSCAMS, the Texas Aggie Storm Chasers, and many balloon launches. She spent two summers furthering research in different areas to include radar field studies, comparing affordable weather instruments, and developing a cloud observatory on campus.
In Megan’s spare time, she enjoys spending outdoor time with her husband and two dogs. She has been a competitive Irish dancer since the age of 8 and likes to keep involved with dancing to stay in shape. She loves football season and will always root for the Fightin’ Texas Aggies.
