Eyewitness Weather Team
The Eyewitness News Weather Team is ‘On Your Side’.
CBS 3 and The CW Philly’s team of meteorologists cover the four seasons with an extensive knowledge of science and a deep commitment to our community. In addition to providing forecasts for the two CBS-owned stations, you will hear the Eyewitness News weather team on our five CBS Radio stations in the market – KYW Newsradio, Sportsradio 610 WIP, Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, 98.1 WOGL and 94 WYSP.
The weather team comes equipped with the most technologically-advanced equipment in the region, including Live Mega Doppler 3, a million-watt radar system that is capable of tracking storms hundreds of miles away, before they impact our region. This winter, the team added the award-winning Mobile Weather Lab, a virtual weather station on wheels, to its tool shed to better enable the team to bring viewers weather live from where they live.
Beyond their forecasting skills, the CBS 3/CW Philly weather team is dedicated to making a difference in their communities.
Kathy Orr, eight-time Emmy Award winner, as “best weathercaster,” has been educating local teachers in meteorology for 10 years so it can be added to the curriculum in local schools. Colleague Carol Erickson is a passionate advocate for family pets and other animals. She often includes “pet advisories” in her weather forecasts, hosts a “pet page” on CBS 3’s website and reports on animal-related stories. Justin Drabick has also taught meteorology at the college level. The newest member of the Eyewitness News weather team, Kate Bilo, comes to CBS from AccuWeather in State College, Pennsylvania which has helped launch a generation of TV forecasters. Kate has joined both Kathy and Carol on the “Women of Eyewitness News” breast cancer team that annually hosts the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure each Mother’s Day and participates in breast cancer awareness activities year-round.
It’s illegal to ride four-wheelers or dirt bikes on city streets, yet the law hasn’t stopped scores of young people from taking part in the dangerous activity.
Spring is officially here but Winter does not want to give up. Snow fell overnight in the Lehigh Valley & Poconos and accumulated up to 9 inches in Tobyhanna, 8 inches at Pocono Summit and 2.1 inches in Allentown. A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 6am Thursday for Carbon, Monroe and Northampton counties. Elsewhere, a chilly rain fell with temperatures that struggled to climb out of the 30s.
The luck of the Irish was with us today as temperatures climbed into the mid 60s with lots of sunshine. In fact, today was one of the mildest St. Patrick’s Days in recorded history.
