Mike Lynch

Mike Lynch is a native Minnesotan who grew up in Richfield, Minnesota, in the 1960s. He attended Saint Peter’s Catholic School and Holy Angels High School. After 2 years at the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities, he transferred to the University of Wisconsin Madison and earned his B.S. degree in Meteorology in 1979. Shortly afterward, he was hired as a broadcast meteorologist at WCCO Radio. He retired in 2020 after a 40-year career. Mike has covered all kinds of weather, from deadly tornadoes to record cold snaps. In fact, on February 2, 1996, he broadcasted from Tower, Minnesota, when the temperature dropped to 60 degrees below zero, an all-time record low for the state of Minnesota.
In 2007, he also wrote Mike Lynch’s Minnesota WeatherWatch, which was a finalist in the Minnesota Book Awards.
On top of that, Mike also writes a weekly Starwatch column for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. His column is syndicated in several other newspapers across the United States.
