Nick Allard joined KIRO 7 in October of 2015 as the morning and noon meteorologist. Before coming to KIRO 7, Allard was most recently the weekday morning meteorologist at KGW in Portland from 2009-2015. Before that he was weekday/weekend morning meteorologist for KING 5 and NWCN in Seattle. He covered all the major storms of the past few years, including the Hanukah Eve storm, and the major flooding.
Before moving to Seattle he was a weather anchor at KVEW-42/KAPP-35 in the Tri-Cities and Yakima Washington from 2003-2006. At KVEW, he reported for about a year before becoming the main weather anchor. He produced and anchored the weather casts for the 5, 6, and 11 for both stations, but was based out of the Tri-Cities. He also hosted Ultimate Yard Makeovers, Muscular Dystrophy Association Telethons, and reported live from Detroit the week leading up to Super Bowl XL and during the game.
Allard received his B.A. in Broadcast News & Production from the Edward R. Murrow School of Communication at Washington State University. He also finished his Meteorology Certification Program at Mississippi State University. Allard has a seal from the American Meteorological Society.
He enjoys spending time with his wife, two sons and his dog. He also enjoys playing all sports and spending time outside.
A powerful storm system will move into northern Vancouver Island on Tuesday, and while we’ll just get “brushed” by the strong wind field Tuesday morning into early Tuesday afternoon, the wind gusts will probably produce some sporadic power outages, particularly north of Seattle and at the coast.
