Dax Clark joined the 5NEWS Weather Team in January of 2020.  Dax comes to 5NEWS after working in Tuscaloosa, Alabama as a weekend meteorologist for the University of Alabama. 

Despite working in Alabama for a time, Dax grew up right here in our area as a native of Clarksville, Arkansas and has always wanted to work for a local station. 

He is is currently attending Mississippi State and finishing his degree online and when completed will have a bachelors degree in atmospheric sciences.  

Dax has been interested in weather for as long as he can remember. He grew up wanting to run towards the storm instead of away and had started to forecast by the 4th grade.  

Outside of weather, you can catch Dax outdoors hiking, traveling as much as possible, and cheering on his Mississippi State Bulldogs & Arkansas Razorbacks.
