Reed Timmer (born March 17, 1980) is a meteorologist and professional storm chaser who starred in the American documentary reality television series Storm Chasers.[1] On the series, Reed followed severe weather with his TornadoVideos.Net team in their vehicle, the SRV Dominator. He also starred in the documentary film Tornado Glory.[2]

Timmer became interested in the weather at a young age after experiencing a severe thunderstorm that reportedly dropped golf ball-sized hail in his yard. After winning the national championship in the tree identification event at the 1996 Science Olympiad, Timmer began studying meteorology at the University of Oklahoma (OU) in 1997. In October of that year, he filmed his first tornado.[3] He earned a B.S. and M.S. at OU and, as of March 2010, is a Ph.D. candidate there. In 2013, Reed joined KFOR-TV's 4WARN Storm Team as a storm spotter for the station.
