Author Bio

Dylan Dreyer is a meteorologist for NBC News, a co-host of the 3rd Hour of Today, and the host of Earth Odyssey with Dylan Dreyer. She's covered hurricanes with 130 mph winds, but she loves a nice breeze when she walks her dog, Bosco. She's stood out in six-foot snowstorms (which is taller than her!), but she loves to go sledding with her sons, Calvin and Oliver. She's watched roads turn into rivers during strong thunderstorms, but she loves to splash in puddles. She's traveled the country (and has been to 49 states!) and the world...she's even been to the North Pole! She loves the weather and thinks the world is a fascinating place. She lives in New York City with her husband, Brian; their sons, Calvin, Oliver, and Rusty; and their dog, Bosco.
