Chris Johnson - Your Weather Source in Bowling Green KY

Chris Johnson

Chris is the Chief meteorologist at Bowling Green's NBC/CBS 40 Weather Center. Before arriving here in Bowling Green, he graduated from Morehead State University with a degree in Communications with an emphasis in Broadcasting. Chris continued his education in the Fall of 2011 at Western Kentucky University where he recently completed his B.S. in Meteorology. 
At Western, he was involved in various research studies in the Climate Research Lab, a student Mesonet operator for the Kentucky Mesonet and a Treasurer for the AMS/NWA student Meteorology chapter. Chris interned at WTVQ-ABC in Lexington and here at WNKY-TV where he gained valuable experience from working with professional meteorologist. 

Chris gained an interest in weather at a very early age. His fascination for weather peaked during the 1998 snowstorm that impacted his hometown in Lexington, KY. Chris vividly remembers this storm as he tuned into every local weather station to see each forecast. The strong snow storm dropped several inches of snow  across the state and created every child's dream for that "winter wonderland." Since then, he's always been curious about why the weather does what it does along with the challenges of forecasting around this region. 

Outside of weather, Chris enjoys other activities such as lifting, running, walking his two dogs, and visiting various attractions across the state with his wife.
