"Having a chance to forecast weather in my hometown is a dream come true." - Scott Harbaugh

Scott Harbaugh is the weekday morning meteorologist for Severe Weather Team 11 and PCNC.

Scott has been back home in Pittsburgh since coming to Channel 11 in 2005. He is a graduate from North Allegheny High School and Ohio University, where he majored in journalism with a specialization in pre-meteorology. He continued on to receive his certificate in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. Scott’s career has taken him to Zanesville, Ohio, Bluefield, West Virginia, Augusta, Georgia, and Rockford, Illinois.

Scott's favorite part of his job is social media. "There is no better way to get information out instantly," Scott says. "I love having the interaction on social media so people can get to know me and not just my forecast."

Scott considers the 'Snowmaggedon' the biggest weather story he has covered since returning to Pittsburgh. "It wasn't just the 21" of snow that weekend, but the four feet of snow for the entire month," says Harbaugh.
