KHQ, SWX - Meet the KHQ Local News, SWX Local Sports Team - Spokane, North Idaho News & Weather KHQ.com

George Maupin joined the KHQ news and weather team in 1993.

Born in Southern California, George Maupin is a veteran of the Vietnam War. George says that he got into television because he was “bored with my regular job…I decided to try something that would be harder and stretch me and perhaps take me places I would otherwise never go.” George’s first television job was in Palm Springs, California. That led to a job as the main sports anchor at the ABC affiliate in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Between Las Vegas and his current position as a morning weatherman on KHQ, George has been a reporter, a “week-in-review” talk show host, editor of a monthly Quarter-Horse magazine, a news director for an all-news radio station and spent a number of years as a television newscast producer.

George says he loves his job and the people he works with, but is most proud of his son who is going to college in Portland. George is also very proud of having behaved “just well enough to keep my beautiful wife”. George and his wife came to Spokane because they were told it was a great place to raise a kid, and George says, “it’s true.”

T.G.I.F Weather Update: Looking Good Until A Disturbance Saturday night

Evening/Overnight: Easygoing winds, a vivid sunset & a moonlit, clear night (GREEN)

Saturday: Crisp morning temperatures, high clouds, pale blue skies & filtered sun…an eggs'cellent day for Easter egg hunters & most outdoor events until changes a cold front sweeps through with some brief showers & gusty winds for the late afternoon/evening…Low/High 33°/64° (GREEN Day, YELLOW Evening)

Easter Sunday: A little breezy, but not a "Wild Hare" Day, so Easter bonnets might just be optional as a mix of sun/clouds dominates the forecast most of the day…Low/High 36°/58° (GREEN)

FYI: Easter Sunday is the first major outdoor holiday of the year. Since the date varies anywhere from March 23rd to April 25th, weather conditions can be almost wintry to very springy. The snowiest Easter was April 4th,1975 where almost 2 ½" fell & the hottest was back on April 19th, 1908, when the temperatures rose to 81°. Hoppy Easter!
