Chief Meteorologist Morgan Palmer serves as meteorologist for weeknight editions of KIRO 7 News. He joined KIRO 7 in 2011 after stints as meteorologist and news anchor in Texas and Florida. Morgan was “bitten” by the forecasting bug at an early age and started chasing storms in Tornado Alley as soon as he got his teenage driver’s license. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and completed advanced meteorology studies at Mississippi State University before embarking on his broadcasting career. Morgan holds the prestigious Seals of Approval from the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and the National Weather Association (NWA), and presently serves as Broadcast Meteorology Committee chair for the NWA. In his spare time, he loves travel, photography, golf, and researching his family history. Morgan has family who have called Western Washington home for many years and is thrilled to have been able to forecast weather for this beautiful region for more than a decade now. He resides on the Eastside.
