CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Reds will have FOX19 and Chief Meteorologist Steve Horstmeyer keeping a close eye on the weather for the 2014 season. 

FOX19 is the official weather provider for the Reds, and Reds officials will have a direct line to FOX19 meteorologists allowing them to get up-to-the-minute weather conditions and forecasts.

"Having a local weather provider who is experienced in the nuances of weather patterns around the Cincinnati region is a great resource for our club," said Tim O'Connell, Reds VP of Ballpark Operations.

"Reds baseball is synonymous with Cincinnati, and we are thrilled to be a part of it," said FOX19 general manager Bill Lanesey. "It makes perfect sense for the hometown weather expert to provide weather information for the hometown team."

Steve Horstmeyer has been forecasting Cincinnati weather for 35 years. Tri-State viewers trust Steve to plan their day, and now the Reds will tap that experience for game day decisions.

"The Reds trust in Steve Horstmeyer's expertise is an affirmation of his passion for weather and his status in this market," said FOX19 News Director Kevin Roach.

Horstmeyer will have a presence at Great American Ball Park throughout the 2014 regular season.

"I still remember listening to Reds games on my transistor radio as a kid," said Horstmeyer.  "The chance to work with the team I grew up listening to is a dream come true."
