Bob Jeswald returned to Columbus in 2006, a homecoming for his wife, Teresa, who was born and raised here.

Bob worked as a meteorologist in Las Vegas, Nevada and Phoenix, Arizona before deciding to head back to the fountain city to raise his family.

Bob's first stint in Columbus was in the early 90's. He worked for the local ABC affiliate where he covered the Storm of the Century, also known as the 1993 Superstorm.

Since joining WRBL Bob has helped launch the First Alert weather concept. He led WRBL's team coverage of the tornado that struck Columbus on March 1, 2007 and also anchored coverage of the deadly tornado outbreak that hit the Southeast from April 25th through the 28th, 2011.

Bob is an integral part of the community. He's been designated as a "hero" by the American Red Cross. He spearheaded the creation of the Air Quality Alliance of the Chattahoochee Valley. Bob makes regular appearances in classrooms throughout our viewing area to help children better understand the weather.

Bob holds the American Meteorological Society Seal of Approval and is a member of the National Weather Association.

    Keeping the clouds, wind, and drizzle around

    Friday, April 18 2014 11:26 PM EDT2014-04-19 03:26:22 GMT
    Today's forecast high all depends on if we see any sunshine. I doubt it right now, but you never know. The winds will also stick with us a while longer as the low pushes away from us. Right now with the circulation around the low, this will keep clouds, breezy conditions, and periods of light drizzle around for most of the day. Easter is looking pretty good. Breezy and seasonal!
