Bridge to Bridge - Mike Buresh, Chief Meteorologist, Action News JAX CBS 47/FOX 30

Wednesday, May 8, 2024 (11:30 AM - 1:00 PM) (EDT)


Mike Buresh is chief meteorologist at Action News Jax.

He anchors newscasts on WJAX and WFOX and can be heard daily on 104.5 WOKV in addition to a number of other local radio stations.

Buresh is a self-professed "weather holic" and his fascination with weather developed at a very young age while growing up in rural Iowa. As early as the second grade, Mike's mom says he was drawing weather maps and "always looking at the sky."

He graduated from Iowa State University,  but began his college studies at Oklahoma University where he became an experienced "storm chaser" in addition to working at the National Weather Service.

Shortly after graduating, Buresh earned the American Meteorological Society's "Seal of Approval" and has also achieved his Certification for Broadcast Meteorologist which certifies that Mike meets specific educational and experience criteria and has passed rigorous testing in his knowledge and communication of meteorology and related sciences needed to be an effective broadcast meteorologist.

Buresh began his television meteorology career at WHO-TV in Des Moines, Iowa, then at WKRC-TV in Cincinnati, Ohio before coming to Northeast Florida more than 20 years ago. Mike has calmly, effectively and accurately warned, tracked and informed viewers about tornadoes, waterspouts, floods and many local tropical cyclones including hurricanes Ian, Nicole, Michael, Irma and Matthew, Bonnie, Charley, Frances, Jeanne, Fay, Beryl, Debby and Andrea to name just a few.

 Mike is an avid writer and has a large following in the blog-o-sphere -- "Buresh Blog" and "Talking the Tropics With Mike" (hurricane season June 1st-Nov. 30th).
