Title: Chief Meteorologist

Jason Stiff is the Chief Meteorologist for Action News Now. Jason's interest in weather began when he was young, and he loves forecasting the weather for northern California. He considers forecasting the weather an important, exciting, and fun responsibility.

Jason was born and raised in Montana and has always loved living and working in the western United States. Before moving to California, Jason worked in Utah, Idaho, Washington, and New Mexico. Jason earned the prestigious Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation from the American Meteorological Society (AMS) in 2005, and the original AMS Seal of Approval in 1998.

Jason earned both his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in meteorology from the University of Utah. As an undergraduate, he also worked for the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City for four years.

When he isn't busy forecasting the weather, Jason loves to watch and play sports (especially golf, basketball & football). He's also a big fan of movies, music, and staying in shape.

If it's a clear night, you might see him looking up at the sky...not in search of storms, but looking at the stars and planets. Astronomy ranks close behind meteorology in Jason`s book. He also loves to share his interest in weather and the importance of science education with students and other groups.

Feel free to follow Jason on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and be sure to watch Jason's Storm Tracker Weather forecasts each weekday and weeknight at 4, 5, 6, 10, and 11 p.m. on Action News Now!
