Claire duPont joined the WeatherFlow team in the spring of 2010 while completing her M.S. in meteorology at the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, FL. There she specialized in high-resolution wave prediction models. This Charleston, SC native grew up windsurfing and surfing and she developed her interest in meteorology due to chasing hurricane swells along the East Coast.

Claire serves both as a member of the forecast team and the Tempest Weather System team. But when she’s not working, Claire enjoys windsurfing and surfing, but she’s also learning how to kiteboard.
