James Wieland Career

Wieland serves as a Meteorologist at WPTV. After graduating from Florida State University, he faced the challenge of adapting to the frosty climate of Clarksburg, West Virginia. There, he assumed the role of Chief Meteorologist at WDTV, where he quickly learned the art of digging his car out from under layers of snow.

Moving on to Macon, Georgia, Wieland encountered numerous severe thunderstorms and even pursued Hurricane Floyd along the Georgia coastline. His efforts were recognized with the prestigious American Meteorological Society Seal of Approval during his time in Macon. Transitioning to the Carolinas, Wieland expanded his expertise in tropical weather, covering several storms over three years. His contributions were acknowledged when he was named runner-up for “Best of the Pee Dee” in a local newspaper poll, The Morning News.

Upon arriving in Baltimore, Wieland faced the demanding task of forecasting for three different stations each night, tackling snowstorms, tornadoes, and heatwaves all in one go. Despite being miles away in his Baltimore studio, James provided live coverage of Hurricanes Dennis and Charlie as they battered the Florida coastlines. Now, James is overjoyed to return to his roots in sunny south Florida, bidding farewell to the chilly weather and embracing the warmth of the beach. With his family residing in Palm Beach County, they eagerly tune in to watch his broadcasts live.

During his downtime, Wieland indulges in his love for the beach and surfing, proudly supporting the Surfrider Foundation as a member. His passion for surfing inspired him to pioneer the area’s first surf blog authored by a meteorologist, offering valuable insights into local wave conditions.
