Tim Lavigne

Weekend Meteorologist / Reporter

Tim Lavigne

Tim Lavigne joined "13 On Your Side" as a Weekend Meteorologist and Reporter in April 2013.

Despite being a snowbird from New England, Tim became fascinated with hurricanes in high school and decided he wanted to become a broadcast meteorologist. Tim attended Lyndon State College in Vermont, where he earned his bachelor's degree in Meteorology.

Raised in a working class family, with two parents who kept full time jobs, Tim learned at an early age that when there is a job to be done, you get out there and you put in your hours. Tim is one of the first members of his family to graduate from college and feels a sense of the pride that he's bringing to his family. In turn, Tim pours that same enthusiasm into his on-air performance.

Tim looks forward to becoming a great reporter in the region.

"I really like the people here. The people are helpful and have made a great impression on me. You can really build a sense of camaraderie in Yuma / El Centro."

In his spare time, Tim is an avid pool player. You'll likely find him wherever there is a pool table, or outside enjoying the desert weather. Tim looks forward to meeting new faces and getting to know the community. He's very approachable and is dedicated to providing top notch forecasting and focused reporting that grabs our viewers because as Tim says, "I'm living my dream."
