Kenneth Graham, WX4KEG, is New National Hurricane Center Director:

Kenneth Graham, WX4KEG, is the new head of the National Hurricane Center (NHC in Miami, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has announced. Preparations at the NHC continue ahead of the 2018 hurricane season, which begins on June 1. Graham picked up the reins from Deputy/Acting Director Ed Rappaport on April 1.

"It's an honor and privilege to be selected to work alongside the talented and dedicated employees of the National Hurricane Center," said Graham. "This is an exciting time to work for the National Weather Service, and I look forward to the important work ahead in an effort to keep our communities safe from the various threats posed by hurricanes." He and Rappaport were presenters at the recent National Hurricane Conference in Orlando.

Graham comes to the NHC after serving as the meteorologist-in-charge of the National Weather Service New Orleans/Baton Rouge Office since 2008.

"Graham has vast experience working with emergency managers prior to and during a wide variety of weather threats and spent time deployed with officials at emergency operations centers," the NOAA announcement said. A former TV meteorologist, Graham holds a B.S. degree from the University of Arizona and an M.S. degree from Mississippi State University.
