Jon Loufman joined our team as the weekend meteorologist in August 2002.
Jon is no stranger to Cleveland weather or to forecasting it. He has been anchoring the weather here in his hometown for more than 15 years. A past president of the Northeast Ohio chapter of the American Meteorological Society, Jon holds a masters degree in his field and was inducted into the Ohio Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2002.
Jon also shares his weather knowledge with local teachers and students. He has taught meteorology at Case Western Reserve University and Lakeland Community College.
He currently travels to hundreds of schools throughout Northeast Ohio presenting his "Atmosphere Adventures" program, which has a proven record of significantly raising scores on Ohio's standardized tests.
In addition, Jon serves on the Advisory Committee for Community Continuing Education at Cuyahoga Community College.
Sunday starts with clouds but will afford us some glimpses of sunshine throughout the afternoon as the mercury recovers into the upper 50s on gusty southeast winds courtesy of the warm front lifting from south to north across Ohio throughout the day.
Meteorologist Jon Loufman says a plethora of warm, moist air will surge northward across us on a humid weekend that brings rain, some thunderstorms and highs rocketing into the 80s on both Saturday and Sunday.
