Michael Estime, WKYC Meteorologist

Michael Estime is an AMS Certified Broadcast Meteorologist at WKYC/NBC News in Cleveland, Ohio. I am proud to call the Buckeye State my home!

Before joining the Channel 3 family, I served for 4 years as the Morning, Midday & Noon Meteorologist at WTVQ in the “Horse Capital of the World” – Lexington, Kentucky.

While in Kentucky, my forecasts of crippling snowstorms, record-shattering cold, devastating flooding, and violent tornadoes helped earn our weather team the title of “Most Accurate Forecast in Central Kentucky” by WeatheRate. Your safety before, during and after a storm is my number one priority.

Rain or shine, day or night, my passion for the weather, commitment to our community, and an optimistic outlook are qualities that you can count on. I am a proud graduate of Central Michigan University (CMU) and earned degrees in both Meteorology and Mathematics.

During my time at CMU, I worked for MHTV News Central 34 and was awarded “Best Weathercaster” in 2006, 2007 & 2008. I started my career working behind the scenes at WWJ-TV CBS Detroit through the Emma L. Bowen Foundation (EBF) and was awarded a 5-year work/study scholarship with CBS News.

The EBF allowed me the opportunity to work with meteorologists all over the country from New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and Detroit to The Weather Channel. In 2009, the EFB honored me with its coveted “Outstanding Student of the Year” award. My next jump took me to the “Song & Soul of the South,” – Macon, Georgia.

I served as a Morning Meteorologist at WMGT for several years before being promoted to the Chief Meteorologist position. I experienced just about everything in Georgia, from blistering hot summers and hurricanes to snow and ice storms.

The historic April 27-28, 2011 tornado outbreak in the southeast, which decimated parts of Central Georgia, serves as my piece of humble pie as to the extreme power of Mother Nature.

I am an AMS Certified Broadcast Meteorologist through the American Meteorological Society, and also hold a membership with the National Weather Association.

In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering in the community, playing the clarinet, and spending time with friends and family (including my mirror-identical twin brother!)If you would like me to speak with your students or participate in your charity event, please send me an email to MichaelEstime@WKYC.com

Most Interesting People 2018: Michael Estime

From major snowstorms, hurricanes and tornadoes, the WKYC meteorologist loves extreme weather.
Why He’s Interesting: The self-described geek has made a name for himself with his sunny personality as WKYC’s weekend morning meteorologist since joining the station in May 2016. The Detroit native loves the extreme weather most viewers hate — major snowstorms, severe thunderstorms, and even tornadoes and hurricanes.Storm Trooper: As a child, Estime would lay in the front lawn, looking for familiar shapes in the clouds, while his two brothers shot hoops and threw footballs. The sound of thunder sent him running to a window in an attempt to take pictures of lightning with his disposable camera. “Every time a tornado warning was issued and the sirens went off that was like, Oh, my gosh! It felt like Christmas Day to me when that happened.”Weather Channel: Estime’s first taste of broadcast meteorology came in the fourth grade when he volunteered to do the weather on his elementary school’s closed-circuit television system. “I joined the student council because you had to be on the student council in order to do it.” By middle school, he was shadowing meteorologists at local stations.

Mirror Image: Estime has a twin brother, David, a Chicago businessman who looks so much like him that he called upon his sibling to serve as a living, breathing mannequin during his first working-wardrobe shopping trips. “I needed to see how they were going to look like on me. How are you supposed to see how they look in the back in a mirror? For me, it was just easier to drag my brother along.”

Music Man: Estime took up the clarinet in fifth grade, an instrument he continued mastering in high school and college marching bands. He occasionally plays classical and jazz selections at home for his own enjoyment. “If ever our family is having a Christmas party, I’ll bring over a clarinet. I have a couple of cousins who play instruments. We’ll have a little family Christmas singalong.”

Snow Daze: Estime’s favorite — and most talked about — suit is a turquoise-blue number covered in white snowflakes, complete with matching tie, that he purchased online to wear during holiday broadcasts while working in Lexington, Kentucky. “I was like, If I have to work on Christmas morning while everyone else is at home opening up presents, I want to make this fun!”
