Luke Dorris WPLG Local 10 News
Luke currently serves as a meteorologist at WPLG Local 10 News in Miami, Florida. He joined the WPLG Local 10 News in August 2017. Prior to joining the WPLG-TV, he worked for more than seven years as a chief meteorologist at KLKN-TV in Lincoln. Nebraska. While there, he reported several tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and snowstorms. He also achieved the certified broadcast meteorologist designation from the American Meteorological Society, which is the highest certification available to broadcast meteorologists.
Luke before having a passion for weather, joined college to study automotive engineering which he had an interest in. While studying, he secured a part-time job in a beer distribution warehouse, where he operated a forklift to load beer trucks after ending his classes. While working during hot summer evenings in the warehouse when a storm blew in and began raining, then hailing so hard that drivers from the nearby state highway pulled into the parking lot to ride out the storm. The awning on the front of the building blew off and landed on one of the vehicles.
The aluminum-sided warehouse made an awful creak and then partially blew down. Luke thought he was getting hit by a tornado, but he later found out it was a “microburst,” or severe straight-line winds in excess of 90 mph.
After the incident that happened while working at the warehouse, his passion for weather grew and he changed his mind towards automotive engineering and joined the University of Oklahoma to study meteorology. While at the university he had the opportunity to intern at KWTV in Oklahoma City where he worked with Gary England, Michael Armstrong and the weather team.
