Torres is a graduate of Texas A&M University with a B.S. in Meteorology and a minor in Spanish. He has received several awards and honors, is a member of the American Meteorological Society and a certified Broadcast Meteorologist.
"I have been fascinated with the weather ever since I was a kid." Torres said. "I’m excited to be in New Mexico and to have the opportunity to work with the great team at KOB."
Torres enjoys hiking, baseball, salsa dancing, talking to students about weather, and he’ll take green, not red chile please.
