Kevin Coskren Career
Coskren serves as a Senior On-Air Meteorologist at AccuWeather Network. In 1999, while forecasting weather for WKBT-TV in La Crosse, Wisconsin, he earned the AMS Seal of Approval. Kevin relocated to Lincoln, Nebraska in June 1999 to work as the first-morning meteorologist for KLKN-TV. He was elevated to Chief Meteorologist at KLKN a short time after.
Following his coverage of an EF-4 tornado that nearly destroyed the hamlet of Hallam, Nebraska in May 2004, Coskren received multiple honors and made appearances on The Discovery Channel’s “Storm Chasers.” The tornado had a width of 2.5 miles, making it the second-largest tornado on record. He became Chief Meteorologist at WLNE in Providence, Rhode Island, in the summer of 2012. He had to deal with everything from hurricanes to nor’easters while he was there. Due to strong snow and wind, Kevin was frequently stranded at the station.
Coskren and his family moved south to Augusta, Georgia, after surviving some of the coldest, snowiest winters in New England history, where he claims there are only two seasons: Summer and next Summer. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to cover severe weather during the Master’s golf tournament, especially when a tornado warning was issued 10 miles north of Augusta just as Tiger Woods was coming up to the 18th green on the edge of winning the 2019 Masters.
Coskren has always been fascinated by the weather. “When I was a kid, I recall the 1978 blizzard. Outside the kitchen sliding glass door, I watched the snow pile up next to a yardstick. There was thunder and lightning, and I couldn’t figure out how it all worked “Coskren reminisces.
