Jessica Lebel joined the Pinpoint Weather team on FOX31 and Colorado’s Own Channel 2 as a meteorologist in March 2017. She is thrilled to be back in her hometown forecasting for the state of Colorado. You can watch Jessica on FOX31 News on Saturday and Sunday nights and during the week chasing storms in the Pinpoint Weather Beast.

Jessica grew up in Littleton, Colorado where she experienced a wide variety of weather that sparked her interest in becoming a meteorologist. Growing up on the Front Range, she learned to love the outdoors and appreciate everything that Colorado has to offer.

Before moving back to Denver, Jessica worked as a meteorologist at KKTV 11 News, CBS affiliate, in Colorado Springs. In Colorado Springs, Jessica covered wildfires, blizzards, tornadoes, and severe flooding events. Prior to moving there, Jessica worked as a meteorologist and multimedia journalist in Grand Junction, Colorado at KKCO and KJCT.

Jessica attended the University of Kansas and received a B.S. in Atmospheric Science with an emphasis in News Media Forecasting. While in school, she was the weekend meteorologist at WOW6 News, in Lawrence, Kansas. During her time in Tornado Alley, Jessica fell in love with forecasting severe weather and chased her first tornado on April 8, 2015 in Medicine Lodge, Kansas.

On her days off you can catch Jessica hiking, skiing, playing soccer, and cheering on the KU Jayhawks basketball team (Rockchalk!). Please send her any cool weather photos you take in Colorado. She’d love to see them!
