Kevin Lemanowicz was the first chief meteorologist for Boston 25 News at Ten in 1996, and has guided viewers through all the twists and turns of New England weather for more than 25 years! Kevin is a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) and is a Silver Circle Honoree, a special recognition from the Boston/New England chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences honoring veteran television professionals who’ve made significant contributions to their community and in their field of expertise.
Kevin loves the challenge of forecasting the changeable New England weather. As a native New Englander, Kevin has had the opportunity to see what a powerful impact weather has on the lives of local residents. He remembers the blizzard of 1978 hitting in 3rd grade, but in his career, he’s seen everything winter has to offer from the President's Day Storm of 2004 to the Blizzard of 2005 and the record snowfall in the winter of 2015. Of course, it isn’t all about snow in New England. Kevin has been on the air for hours continuously when tornadoes have hit, like the one that hit Monson and other towns in 2011.
Kevin keeps New Englanders on track with changing weather beyond Boston 25 News’ on-air and digital platforms. He and the Boston 25 StormTracker Weather Team provide forecasts to the Boston Red Sox, Country 102.5 WKLB, Magic 106.7 WMJX, and WCRN AM 830. Additionally, Kevin has done in-depth stories related to weather and science, like a winter night atop Mount Washington and tagging sharks off of Cape Cod.
Kevin is active in the community and has visited hundreds of schools giving students and teachers a better understanding of how weather works both locally and globally. He shares his love of meteorology and science expertise with a variety of groups including the Massachusetts Middle School Scholars, Weston Observatory Lecture Series, and at the annual STEM Day at Fenway Park. He also serves as the emcee for the annual Cox Conserves Heroes Awards.
Prior to working at Boston 25, Kevin was chief meteorologist at WTIC in Hartford, CT. He has also worked at the New England Weather Service in Hartford, providing forecasts for private industry and radio stations. Prior to that, Kevin was a staff meteorologist at Fleetweather, Inc., where he tracked storms for radio, schools, private industry and the Weather Channel. Kevin began his career as a meteorologist at WVIT-TV in Hartford, CT.
Kevin is a strong supporter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, The Random Smile Project, and The Salvation Army of MA. Kevin graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology, and is married with two sons.
