My name is Josiah Mault, I received a B.S. in Atmospheric Sciences (with focus in Meteorology) from the University of Washington in June 2006 and am the Assistant State Climatologist for the Office of the Washington State Climatologist.

     I have enjoyed observing and forecasting the weather since I became fascinated by it when watching TV weather forecasts when I was 12. Since then, I had the goal of making a career out of weather and computers (my second fascination) and plan to continue my education with an advanced degree in atmospheric sciences and/or a computer science degree.
