Jeff Jamison is a meteorologist for CBS 11. You can watch Jeff’s forecast weekdays afternoons at 4:00 p.m. on CBS 11 and on CBSDFW.com.
Jeff was the only meteorologist in North Texas to fly into the eye of Hurricane Rita before it made landfall in September, 2005. In 2006, he was awarded the Certified Broadcast Meteorology (CBM) Seal of Approval, the first in the Dallas / Fort Worth market.
Prior to arriving at CBS 11 News in 2003, Jeff was morning and noon meteorologist at KTBS-TV in Shreveport, Louisiana. While there, he covered the land falling of Hurricanes Lili and Isadore along the Louisiana coast. Jeff also has experience in forecasting severe weather, including tornadoes and even ice storms. During his tenure at KTBS, Jeff and the weather team became the first broadcast meteorologists in the country to use a one million watt Doppler radar on the air. He also was an important part in developing the use of the country’s largest weather lab for television and helped modernize the way weather forecasts are displayed.
Jeff began his career in Bryan / College Station and Waco in 1997 as a meteorologist with CBS affiliates KBTX-TV and KWTX-TV. While there, Jeff was awarded the AMS Broadcast Seal of Approval. At KBTX, he presented a series of reports on the 100-year anniversary of the 1900 hurricane that leveled most of Galveston.
Jeff attended Western Hills High School in Fort Worth and graduated Cum Laude from Texas A&M University with a degree in meteorology. He also is an active member of both the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association.
Jeff is married and has two sons. In his spare time, Jeff likes being with his family, exploring North Texas’ restaurants, and playing golf.
The European model, in many ways, is superior to the GFS model right now, but the government is going to spend a lot of money working to improve American supercomputer forecasts.
Unbelievably cold for the month of April as temperatures hover in the 40s Tuesday afternoon with a strong north wind. Bundle up tonight if you’re out. Or maybe a fire in the fireplace if you still have any wood (can’t believe I just typed that sentence on April 23).
After Monday’s active weather in our northwestern counties, Tuesday should remain storm-free for all of North Texas. There is a very slim chance of an isolated storm well west of the DFW area. But not [...]
A TORNADO WATCH has been issued for areas west and northwest of the DFW Metroplex until 11pm tonight. It does include Denton, Wise and Parker counties. The storms that form will be isolated super-cells in [...]
Weather was great last night for the 300 race at Texas Motor Speedway. It’ll be great again tonight. Same could be said for the last races and outdoor concert (Gary Allen) at Lone Star Park’s [...]
HERE COME THE WINDS In the midst of drought I’m always weary of welcoming a dry out and warm up. Still, it was nice to see the sun and feel some warmth on Friday, especially well timed [...]
There is a SLIGHT RISK for severe weather later tonight, mainly over our northwestern counties. The strongest storms have the chance to produce large hail up to quarter size, strong [...]
Our unbelievably nice weather week will finish on a strong note Friday and Saturday, with high temperatures into the 80s both days. A strong south wind will accompany the warm temps. The weather pattern [...]
The National Weather Service on Monday said that this week’s conditions could be named “Goldilocks Weather” because it’s just right. Enjoy a comfortable night ahead. Be sure to check out the Comet Pan-STARRS over the [...]
It hasn’t been the prettiest Friday with the low clouds and intermittent light rain. That will continue for the rest of the afternoon and evening….nothing more than a few one-hundreths of an inch of rain [...]
It has been a beautiful Thursday in North Texas with breezy south winds and lots of sunshine. We made it back into the 70s but probably will fall just short of that for Friday with [...]
Our chilly breezes over the past couple of days finally died down a bit today. It’s been a quiet, mild afternoon. You’ve probably noticed the high clouds increasing from the west. It will be a [...]
