Meteorologist, WLKY In Louisville, KY.
Introduction

Jared Heil has always lived in the Louisville area. He joined WLKY as a meteorologist in 2010.

Jared holds the distinction of Certified Broadcast Meteorologist – given by the American Meteorological Society to on-camera meteorologists who meet established criteria for scientific competence and effective communication skills in their weather presentations. In addition, Jared graduated with honors from the University of Louisville Atmospheric Science program.

Jared is thrilled to be forecasting the weather in his hometown. He was born and raised in Henryville, Ind., about 20 minutes north of downtown Louisville.  Jared hopes that his knowledge of the Greater Louisville area, stemming from living here his entire life, will prove to be helpful during times of active weather.

In his free time, Jared enjoys traveling and spending time with his family and friends. He has a golden retriever, Gordon. Jared says that growing up on his family's farm led him to appreciate nature in all its forms, likely leading to his passion for weather at a very early age.

One particular weather event in our area hit very close to home for Jared on March 2, 2012, when an EF4 tornado struck his hometown of Henryville and other southern Indiana communities. While his family took cover, he was at WLKY helping keep viewers safe from the dangerous storms. Jared is proud of his community, noting that he feels blessed to live where there are so many caring people helping one another amid tragic circumstances.

While he appreciates the occasional thunderstorm, Jared's favorite weather is sunshine and 80 degrees. Add in the palm trees and it’s easy to see why his favorite vacation destination is south Florida!
