Chief Meteorologist Steve Templeton forecasts the weather for News 4 weekday evenings at 5pm and 10pm. He joins KMOX’s Total Information PM weekdays for weather forecasts.
Steve is one of the first Meteorologists in the country to receive the Certified Broadcast Meteorology Seal from the American Meteorological Society. He also holds the Seal of Approval from the National Weather Association.
Steve earned his degree in Atmospheric Science from Purdue University in Indiana before starting his TV meteorology career as Chief Meteorologist at KFXB-TV in Dubuque, Iowa. Steve then went on to forecast in tornado alley as the morning and noon meteorologist for WHO-TV in Des Moines, Iowa.
The chance to be close to family and continue to forecast wild weather is why Steve moved to St. Louis and KMOV-TV. Steve’s wife, Rebecca, grew up in the St. Louis area, Nashville, IL. Steve’s two young sons were born here in St. Louis and have made life so much more fun and yet so much busier at the same time. But Steve’s in-laws make great babysitters when Steve and Rebecca want to take in a great restaurant, a ball game and all that St. Louis has to offer.
