Chief Meteorologist

Dave Roberts

Dave Roberts first came to Mississippi 25 years ago as one of the youngest Chief Meteorologists in Jackson TV history. With just a few more gray hairs these days, he's happy to call Mississippi home.

"I've always had a passion for Mississippi weather," said Dave. "This is a place of extremes and it's always interesting."

Dave not only loves the weather here, but he enjoys the friendly people and the fact that you can't find a bad meal in Mississippi. He always loves trying new places, so be sure to tell him about the ones you come across.

Dave has both AMS & NWA Seals of Approval.

His favorite season in Mississippi is winter, but nowhere else would he say that.

"Sometimes you need a jacket, sometimes you need shorts," Dave added.

He's an outdoors type person, loves animals and used to be a farmer.

Dave is the Chief Meteorologist for WLBT and Fox40 and you can see his forecasts weeknights on both stations.
