Meteorologist Jim Guy joined King 5 in September 2009. He brings more than 27 years of forecasting experience to the Northwest. From the extreme heat of Fresno, California, to the bitter cold of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Jim has experienced nearly every type of weather there is. He has also spent time forecasting the weather in Iowa, West Virginia, Indiana, and Arizona.
He notes, “I’ve stood outside when the thermometer hit 105—as well as 30 below zero.”
Jim completed the Broadcast Meteorology Program at Mississippi State University in 1989 as a member of the program’s first graduating class.
He is a member of the American Meteorological Society (AMS), and has earned the AMS Television Seal of Approval, which recognizes “television and radio weather forecasters who display informative, well-communicated, and scientifically-sound weather broadcast presentations.”
Jim won an Emmy for his work in 2001. He was nominated for another Emmy in 2007 for his work on a school program called “Weather Interactive,” a 15-part educational series teaching elementary and middle school children the why’s and how’s of weather. The internet program has been used in hundreds of classrooms and viewed by thousands of students across central California.
When he’s not busy forecasting the weather, you may just find Jim on the yoga mat. A certified Iyengar yoga instructor, Jim has taught classes in Minneapolis/St. Paul and Fresno, and has studied yoga in India. Jim is also an avid NASCAR fan, and he enjoys scuba-diving, biking, boating, and anything that gets him outside.
Jim lives in Seattle with his wife, Susan. They have three grown children.
