Steven Roberts has been interested in the weather since he could walk and talk and look out the window. His teachers fostered his interest in weather by encouraging him to read books and articles on the subject.
He lectured on weather-related topics at Middlesex Community College in Lowell, Massachusetts, from where he graduated in 1996 with a degree in business. He has also taught weather at the junior high school level.
Steven has been a regular contributor to the Talking Information Center (TIC) Radio Information Network in Marshfield, Massachusetts, where he has produced weather forecasts on a daily basis since 1997.
He worked as a weather analyst at WCAP Radio in Lowell for 10 years, from 1996 to 2006.
For the last 17 years, he has had his own radio program on LAB/TIC Radio called "Weather Wisdom Weekly," a weekly radio program on which he discusses the latest topics in weather, such as Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Katrina, and the severe weather outbreaks of 2003 and 2011.
He is writing several additional books on various aspects of weather.

Weather forecasters are calling for a 6- to 10-foot dumping of snow in New England, inspiring the children of Boston's mayor and the Massachusetts governor to run away from the comfort and safety of their fine homes to frolic in the frost of this deadly and devastating winter hurricane. While this is going on, the Highway Department is planning a sickout to coincide with the onset of the great storm, as the governor has not been completely forthcoming with these people. The storm strikes, the kids are nowhere to be found, and the governor is left to orchestrate a response with far fewer people than are necessary to do the job right.
