Indra Petersons joined the Eyewitness News Team in 2004. She first came to the station as the primetime weather producer and fill in meteorologist. After several years of assisting Dallas Raines with forecasting and graphics, she is now fulfilling her dream as an on air meteorologist at KABC. She can be seen weekend mornings forecasting the weather. Her other duties include a weekly ski and surf report as well as reporting on featured weather phenomena throughout the week.
Indra's television career began at KVIA in El Paso, Texas where she was both an on air meteorologist as well as a reporter. She continued her journey at KEYT in Santa Barbara, CA as an on air meteorologist. Being a Los Angeles native, Indra soon returned home to forecast the weather in the area she loves most.
Her passion for weather started at a very young age and she was determined to spend her life educating others about the amazing nature and dangers of the weather. Indra holds a Bachelor of Science in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Arizona. This rigorous meteorology curriculum included a minor in both math and physics. She also completed a minor in business. As a result, Indra is a professional member of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) as well as the National Weather Association (NWA).
Indra enjoys traveling the world. She feels as though there is so much to be learned from all the different cultures and people she comes in contact with. Indra's heritage is Latvian. She speaks fluent Latvian and spent her childhood learning about the country's unique history including their native folk songs and dances. Yes, she can polka dance. Although Indra is a common Latvian name, she later learned that her name coincidentally is also the name of the Hindu warrior Indra: god of weather, sky, rain and thunder. Be careful what you name your kids! Indra also loves to snowboard and retreats to the local mountains as much as possible.
When in town, Indra can be found pampering her rescued dog at any one of our local dog parks or dog trails and enjoying the outdoors.
