Nate Larsen is our newest meteorologist to join the ABC4 Pinpoint Weather Team. Nate is part of our weekend crew and can be him on our weekend newscasts at 5 and 10 pm. You’ll also see him filling in for other shows and reporting on Utah’s climate and weather-related stories.
Nate and his wife, Morgan, are Utah natives with roots in Layton, UT. Growing up in the Beehive State, Nate has always had a passion for all four seasons, especially Utah winters and big snow storms. In his youth, he grew up snowmobiling in Utah’s northern mountains and was glued to ABC4 weather forecasts hoping for a fresh snow storm. Later in life, while studying Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Utah, Nate had the chance to intern with the very meteorologist he grew up watching, Dan Pope.
His passion for weather, and a career in broadcast meteorology, took him to Idaho in 2015, where he began forecasting for southeast Idaho at the NBC station in Pocatello, KPVI. After a few years, he and his family moved to Boise, ID, where Nate worked as a morning meteorologist at the CBS affiliate, KBOI. While at KBOI, the morning newscast was voted best in the state by the Idaho State Broadcasters Association on numerous occasions. Boise was an incredible place to live and work; he thoroughly enjoyed his time in the Treasure Valley. However, when the opportunity came to move back to Utah, he felt it was time to come ‘home.’
Nate and Morgan are busy with three beautiful children, two boys, and one girl. As a family, they love spending time outdoors riding bikes, hiking, kayaking, or soaking up the sunshine along the shores of one of Utah’s lakes or reservoirs. When Nate isn’t working or hanging out with his kids, he enjoys mountain biking, golf, and tennis.
Nate is a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist awarded by the American Meteorological Society.
