Mark Eubank

Mark and Jean Eubank

Mark and his wife Jean have seven children. They make their home in Bountiful. After all, according to Mark, Bountiful has the best weather in Utah!

Since the age of 12, Mark Eubank has had a passionate love of weather. When he was 15, he wrote a weekly weather column for a Southern California newspaper.  Even in retirement he is actively pursuing his lifelong goal of making long-range weather forecasting more feasible.

Mark graduated from the University of Utah 1972 with a Bachelor of Science degree in meteorology.  Spending 40 years broadcasting the weather on television in Salt Lake City (1967–2007), Mark Eubank became a household name in our state and beyond. During all those years, Mark almost never failed to mention the weather or snow totals in Bountiful. As a quiet and consistent advocate for our community, Mark Eubank continues to serve as our goodwill ambassador to friends throughout Utah and the surrounding region.

He is the author of two books, Utah Weather and The Weather Detectives. Mark was also the Chief Meteorologist at the Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic Winter Games.  He headed the first non-government weather team ever used for a United States Olympics. 

For 20 years Mark owned and operated WeatherBank, Inc., a weather consulting firm that served railroads, utility companies and radio stations across the nation.  He has served as an adjunct professor at Westminster College, is past president of the Utah Chapter of the American Meteorological Society, and has been an advisor to the State of Utah Weather Modification Board.  He also served as an advisor to the Space Science Center at the University of Wisconsin for Innovative Applications in Meteorology. 

Though retired, Mark Eubank has stayed on as the official weather observer for Bountiful. He has recorded the daily weather conditions for our community every day for 48 years and counting. His quiet efforts behind the scenes help make our community stronger. Mark Eubank continues to find ways to serve those of us fortunate enough to call Bountiful and South Davis County home.
