Meteorologist Jennifer Collins joined the CBS 12 news team in June 2021. You can catch her weather updates Saturday and Sunday evenings, along with the noon show Mondays and Tuesdays.
Jennifer is no stranger to tropical forecasting. She graduated from Florida State University (Go Noles!) in 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in Meteorology and a minor in Mathematics. After graduation, she moved out to beautiful Charleston, South Carolina to work at WPEC’s sister station, WCIV, as their weekend Meteorologist and Multi-Media Journalist. During her time in South Carolina, Jennifer and her team covered hurricane Dorian and the record-breaking 2020 hurricane season.
Jennifer grew up in Apollo Beach, Florida, just outside of Tampa, and is happy to be back closer to family in her home state! She enjoys spending time outside exercising and when she isn’t tracking storms, you can catch her on a run, bike ride or taking care of her cat Hugh.
