Meteorologist

Shreveport, Louisiana

Jessica Moore is the weekend meteorologist who joined the KSLA 12 News team in May of 2019. She is a recent graduate of Mississippi State University, where she achieved a Masters of Geoscience with a concentration in Broadcast. Before earning her masters degree, she earned a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Mississippi.

Jessica has been interested in the news business and weather since she was a young girl. Her love for weather began by wishing for snow while living in Irving, Texas. She would watch the weather channel in hopes they'd have the pink warning labels over her hometown. Although her love for weather began at an early age, it truly grew while learning more about the atmosphere during her time in graduate school.

The first major storm she remembers happened in the evening hours of her 10th grade year. Growing up and hearing countless flash flood and tornado warnings, but never seeing many of the threats in person caused Jessica's awareness and level of concern for these types of warnings to dwindle, until 2011.

During the severe weather outbreak of 2011, a tornado was just inches from her home. She remembers looking out the window, her ear stopping up, and her great aunt yelling for her to head into the hallway. After seeing the devastation and destruction after the tornado, this event brought on fear, which after education, turned into a passion for keeping people safe and alert for severe weather.

She's excited to be in Louisiana, as it serves as a sweet spot between her family in Texas and Mississippi.

When she's not on the green screen, Jessica likes to ride her bike, play the ukulele and paint.
