KING 5 Meteorologist Jordan Wilkerson

I joined the KING 5 weather team in November 2017. Weather is my passion, but I wear multiple hats as a meteorologist, feature reporter and traffic anchor. You can now find me covering your commute on KING 5 mornings Monday through Friday.

I’m a Florida native, but I moved here from Charleston, South Carolina, where I was a weather and traffic anchor. I got my start at KEPR-TV in Tri-Cities, Washington, as a feature reporter and weekend weather anchor.

I lived here from 2010 to 2015, and absolutely fell in love. I graduated from The University of Washington – Tacoma with a bachelor’s degree in communications. I also received a bachelor of science degree in meteorology from Mississippi State University. 

My love for weather started at an early age. I was mostly fascinated with tornadoes and water spouts after witnessing a few as a child. In middle school, I became the weather anchor for my school’s morning announcements show, and continued that through high school.

I’m a huge animal lover! My husband and I are parents to two rescue terriers, which inspired my segment “Fido’s Forecast,” a personalized dog walking forecast complete with your pooch’s picture. If you’d like to submit your dog, post your dog’s picture online using the hashtag #k5pets or just share on my Facebook wall.
