Jeff joined CBS 11 and TXA 21 in December 2010. He came to North Texas from Nashville, where he spent the past 11 years, most recently as the morning meteorologist at WKRN-TV. His career has also taken him to Kansas City, Mo., where he was the senior meteorologist at KSHB-TV. Prior to that, he worked at television stations in Jefferson City, Mo.; Knoxville, Tenn.; and Fort Pierce, Fla.

Born in Lubbock, Jeff spent most of his childhood in Tennessee. He returned to Texas to attend the University of Texas at Austin, where he received his first undergraduate degree. Jeff went on to study news at the University of Florida and later completed his bachelor’s degree in broadcast meteorology at Mississippi State University. He also holds a master’s degree in science education from the University of Missouri at Kansas City.

Jeff and his wife are thrilled to be raising their two sons here in North Texas. In his spare time, Jeff enjoys gardening, cooking (which is more like scientific experimentation, if you ask his wife) and woodworking.

Cool Weather Around The Corner

It is possible that some places will reach 100 degrees on Labor Day. But, after that, there is a significant change in the summer weather pattern later this week.



Some Fall Weather Ahead. But First…

A week from now we’ll finally be cooling down from this stretch of heat. Nice to think of some 80 degree weather and a wet ground again but before we get there it’s going to […]



Evening Rain gone, A Little More Tomorrow

We  had a few storms fire up west of the Metroplex in Saturday afternoon, they died down an hour into sundown. Some good rains reported around Weatherford and Mansfield. Our Weather Watcher Nathan Obregon near […]

Rain Chances Return

We don’t get many days with measureable rain in August at DFW but at least those chances increase as the month wears on: A very strong low pressure system well to our north is producing severe […]
