Dave Williams

Chief Meteorologist

You can catch Chief Meteorologist Dave Williams delivering your forecast weekday evenings on ABC News 4 at 5, 6, 7, and 11 p.m.

Dave has led the First Warning Weather team at WCIV through coverage of several major weather events, including the record-breaking rainfall and flooding of 2015, Hurricane Matthew in 2016, Hurricane Irma in 2017, also a very active 2018 with a snowstorm, and Hurricanes Florence and Michael.

Raised in Northeast Ohio, Dave's experienced dangerous storms, including tornadoes and blizzards, which sparked his passion for meteorology at a young age. While visiting South Carolina on family vacations, Dave saw, first hand, the wrath of Mother Nature.

"I remember seeing the devastation of an F-4 Tornado in Bennettsville, South Carolina, and the aftermath of Hurricane David in Myrtle Beach."

Dave received a B.S. in atmospheric science from The Ohio State University and worked as a meteorologist at WTOV of Steubenville, Ohio, and Wheeling, West Virginia.

Before joining ABC News 4, Dave was just up the road at WBTW in Myrtle Beach.

Armed with a wealth of experience forecasting the weather in the Palmetto State, Dave is a member of the National Weather Association, American Meteorological Society, and holds a Seal of Approval from the NWA.

Dave volunteers for Run Buddies, a program that helps overweight kids and young adults slim down and live healthier lifestyles. Dave's buddy lost over 30 pounds and completed several 5k and 10k races, including the Cooper River Bridge Run.

In his spare time, Dave loves to play basketball, soccer, golf, and go fishing.
