Meteorologist Chris Kuball comes to ABC 6 News from the southern Iowa town of Chariton. He joined the Storm Tracker 6 Weather Team in December 2007 as weekend meteorologist. Chris moved to the morning team in October 2011 before becoming Chief Meteorologist in September 2012. Chris graduated with a bachelor's degree in meteorology from Iowa State University in May of 2007. During his last year of college, Chris interned at KCCI-TV in Des Moines, Iowa.
While growing up in Iowa, Chris experienced the extreme weather the Midwest has to offer. He became interested in weather as a young kid staying up late watching thunderstorms roll through.
But the most interesting weather event Chris experienced took place on November 12th, 2005, when he saw his first tornado. It happened while he was walking to a ISU football game. The tornado narrowly missed a packed stadium and tailgating lots by only 2 miles!
When Chris isn't forecasting, he enjoys spending time with his wife Tiffany, son Alex, friends and family. You can also frequently find him staying active, playing sports such as racquetball and softball. Chris actively cheers on the Iowa State Cyclones, Atlanta Braves and Minnesota Vikings.
Chris is excited to continue forecasting close to home in Southeastern Minnesota and North Central Iowa. You can catch Chris on air every evening at 5, 6 & 10.
