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.

Today’s ragweed count, taken daily by ENTDocs in Plano, is the highest in over ten years, according to a worker with ENTDocs.
A small, but potent upper level disturbance moved across North Texas early this morning, triggering strong thunderstorms for parts of the area. The strongest storms produce quarter size hail and flash flooding, mainly east and southeast of the DFW Metro.
It will be very comfortable this weekend, with cool nights and mild to warm afternoons.
We will get even hotter for Tuesday and Wednesday as high pressure in the upper levels continues its grip over North Texas.
There is more of the same for today’s weather feature: hot and humid. It will be breezy as well…with south winds up to 20-25 mph. Heat index numbers near 100° during the afternoon. These temperatures are running about 5 degrees above normal for early September.
There will be more pop up showers and thunderstorms back in the forecast for Saturday as tropical moisture lingers, especially over the eastern half of North Texas. These will be widely spaced storms mainly during the afternoon and evening. Not everyone will see rain.
It was a hot weekend and the start to the work week is no different. Highs expected to be near 100° this afternoon with light wind and higher humidity.
This weekend will be a hot reminder that it is still August. Temps will be running about 5 degrees above normal, hitting the triple digits both days.
It has been another hot and breezy day in North Texas. We did not see 100° at DFW, but will most likely start seeing triple digits again by Friday or Saturday.
We’ve had at least a slight chance of rain since the weekend, but all the rain is gone now through the early parts of next week. Thursday will be hot and breezy again.
It’s been another very hot day across North Texas, with temperatures above 100° for the fourth day in a row. A HEAT ADVISORY has been extended to include most of North Texas until 7pm Sunday evening
Not much change in the forecast over the next few days, which means it will be very hot and muggy. Actual highs will be near 102 degrees, but the heat index will be near 105 degrees.
There will be many locations to see triple digits on Thursday.
Temperatures for the first day of August have certainly been on the cool side, with readings in the upper 70s to lower 80s this afternoon. Saturday will feature a bit warmer weather, with a little more sunshine. But 89° for a high is still below normal for early August (normal high is 97°)
It was another stunningly cool day today, especially considering the calendar reads July 31. Our high temp was a cool 81°. Add that to the 3 days earlier this month we spent in the 70s and this is the second time on record we’ve had 4 July days below 81°. The only other time that has happened was 109 years ago in 1905!
We had some remarkable rainfall across the northern and northeastern parts of North Texas early this morning as an upper level system rolled through. The sharp demarcation of who got a lot of rain and who didn’t is incredible.
The shield of rain that moved across North Texas this morning yielded generally less than 1/2″ of rainfall. We’re forecasting quite a bit more than that in some areas late tonight into Thursday.
After getting through the hottest weekend so far this year, we are watching some rain chances and slightly lower temperatures to start the work week.
Even though the HEAT ADVISORY was dropped yesterday, it doesn’t mean it’s not going to be hot today or this weekend. Heat index readings will fall just shy of 105°, which is the HEAT ADVISORY criteria. But the feels like numbers today thru Sunday will approach 100-103°.
