Jeff Jamison

Jeff is a meteorologist for CBS 11 News. You can watch his forecast weekday 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.
