A San Fernando Valley native, Jacqueline Bennett is thrilled to be back home in Southern California after stints forecasting the weather in Boise, San Francisco, San Diego, and Boston.
Jacqueline is Los Angeles’ only female Certified Broadcast Meteorologist, a designation awarded by the American Meteorological Society to candidates with a degree in the Geosciences and demonstrative high-quality on-air work, as judged by their peers. She is a proud member of the American Meteorological Society.
Jacqueline is a triple-negative breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed in Boston while pregnant with her second child, who she aptly named Grace. She is an advocate of The Verma Foundation, which provides cap wigs free of cost to women and children battling cancer.
Jacqueline lives with her husband, two children, and three dogs―it’s a chaotic household! When she has time, she posts updates to her website, Yellow Dog Blog, with expert tips and advice for raising healthy, happy dogs. You might see her exploring restaurants, often with sweets in hand. She loves being outdoors and enjoying Southern California’s gorgeous weather.
She earned degrees in Journalism and Spanish from California State University Northridge, and her degree in Atmospheric Sciences with a concentration in Meteorology from San Francisco State University.
