Jessica McLaughlin

Meteorologist

Jessica is a Meteorologist for 7 Eyewitness News.

As a native Buffalonian, Jessica has always been interested in different types of weather. In 2007, her love for weather became her career. She graduated with a B.S. in Meteorology and a minor in Mathematics from SUNY Brockport. A week after graduation, she was packing her bags and heading off to her first job as a weekend meteorologist for KIMT News 3 in Mason City, IA. Before long, Jessica was promoted to morning meteorologist on DayBreak. While living in Mason City, she was able to storm chase and see an EF3 tornado in southern Minnesota.

After over three years at KIMT, Jessica decided to return home to Buffalo to pursue a career in the technology field. In 2012, she graduated cum laude from Mercy College with a B.S. in Computer Science.

In 2013, Jessica began filling in for the WKBW Eyewitness News weather team. When she isn't forecasting at WKBW, she is working as a computer programmer.

In her free time you can find Jessica playing soccer, running, playing various other sports or hanging out with her dog Miles.
