Kari Hall joined NBC Bay Area in May 2015 as meteorologist for NBC Bay Area’s morning newscast Today in The Bay.
Kari is a self-described weather fanatic. She grew up in Louisville, KY where she says her love of weather began at a very early age. From droughts to floods and snowstorms to tornadoes, Kari wanted to learn about it all.
Kari began her career at KATC in Lafayette, LA, where she covered severe weather events, including Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Gustav. After spending six years in Louisiana, she moved back to her home state of Kentucky where she was the weekend meteorologist at WKYT in Lexington, frequently covering tornadoes and snowstorms.
Most recently, Kari worked at News 12 in Connecticut, where she was the Chief Meteorologist for the past two years.
Kari holds a B.S. in Geoscience with an emphasis in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. She is a member of the American Meteorological Society and has a seal of approval from the National Weather Association.
In her free time, she enjoys being outdoors, traveling, Zumba dancing, and cooking. She is married and has a young son.
