Jeff Berardelli joined CBS12 in September 2013 as Weather Expert for the StormTrac Weather Team. He can been seen weekdays during the 5, 6 and 11 p.m. news. In addition, for the past 10 years Jeff has contributed to CBS News as a weather expert for The CBS Evening News and CBS This Morning.
Prior to joining CBS12, Jeff worked as a meteorologist for CBS in Miami from 2007-2013. He was also adjunct professor of meteorology at the University of Miami. Before Miami, Jeff spent 4 years working for WCBS-TV in New York City. Prior to NYC, Jeff spent 6 years in Tampa as a meteorologist for CBS WTSP-TV and Bay News 9.
Jeff obtained his meteorology degree from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY in 1997. But his love for weather can be traced all the way back to the age of three. Jeff is active in several South Florida charities including the Board of Director's of the Children's Cancer Caring Center (CCCC). The CCCC provides free cancer care for children from families of limited means. The CCCC is a local South Florida charity and was founded nearly 50 years ago.
When Jeff is not weathering the storms, you'll likely find him on the water. He enjoys fishing, diving and kayaking. He lives with his better half, wife Christy, and his "thunder buddy" dog General. Feel free to email Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org or find him on Facebook.
