Brian Wilkes Career

Brian’s fascination with weather started early in fourth grade. Growing up on the far south side of Chicago, the blizzard of 1979 kept him out of school for two weeks! This sparked his excitement for the weather, which continues to this day. Brian is a member of both the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association. In August of 1996, he received his Seal of Approval from the National Weather Association.

Brian began his career as the chief meteorologist at his first station WSJV-TV, now the Fox Affiliate in Elkhart, Ind. for their 6 and 10 p.m. shows. During his time at WSJV, Brian produced, wrote, and hosted a documentary on the Palm Sunday tornadoes that ripped through South Bend in April of 1965.

The survey stated that multiple tornado tracks were uncovered southeast of Huntington with the second tornado crossing the first tornado path near CR 200 and CR 100 East.
