Jayme King is the morning Chief Meteorologist for FOX 35's high energy morning show "Good Day Orlando," airing Monday through Friday from 4 a.m. to 10 a.m.
It took 13 years and three television station stops in Rockford, Illinois; Savannah, Georgia; and WOFL's sister station KSAZ in Phoenix for the Florida native to finally return home.
Jayme was born and raised in South Florida, graduating from Plantation High School in Broward County and then graduated from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville with a Communications Degree in 1998.
Jayme also completed his certification with Mississippi State's Broadcast Meteorology Program and earned a seal of approval from the National Weather Association.
Jayme is a multi-generational Floridian and that means the ocean is a huge part of his life. He’s an avid fisherman and boater, often pushing far offshore with his special lady in search of the Atlantic’s biggest sport fish. If he’s not on the boat, you can find Jayme with his two kids surfing in Central Florida’s best waves. His surfing doesn’t stop in Florida! Jayme enjoys surfing internationally as well, especially chasing Southwest swell down in Central America.
Rest assured that Jayme and the FOX 35 Storm Team are always watching and tracking our Central Florida skies. The team is committed to keeping you and your family safe. Depend on us, when it matters the most!
Orlando and Central Florida will see dry weather over the next few days with near-record high temperatures. The presence of a Saharan dust cloud is ushering in dry air but the typical summer shower pattern will return early next week.
Expect another typical July day: Hot, humid with afternoon storms. When you'll need an umbrella:
Showers and storms will be on the rise Tuesday afternoon. The west coast sea breeze is dominant, so shower and storm activity will move northeast.
Keep the umbrella handy today! The onset of storms will be earlier today, starting this morning along the Gulf coast, before moving to the Orlando metro.
Today is the official start of summer!
Temperatures will not be as hot as we've seen over the last several days.
Hot and humid conditions will be the name o' the weather game on this Monday. Inland highs park in the low-mid 90s with a heat index near 100 degrees before storms develop.
The FOX 35 Storm Team is tracking the return of showers and storms on this Memorial Day, mainly during the PM hours.
The FOX 35 Storm Team has declared a FOX 35 Weather Impact Day for late tonight through late morning Saturday.
It's the heat that will make weather headlines today with record highs looking quite possible.
