Meteorologist Justin Drabick joined the CBS 3 and The CW Philly’s Eyewitness News weather team full time in July, 2010. Drabick has been working part-time at the station since April of this year.
Previously, Drabick worked as a meteorologist for WBOC, the CBS and Fox station on the Delmarva Peninsula. He was also chief meteorologist at WMDT, the ABC station in Salisbury, Maryland for five years.

He holds the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) Seal from the AMS, which is regarded as the top accreditation in his field.
A native of Allentown, Drabick is married. His wife, Veronica, works for the federal government.
Today is a good day to dig out as the storm has moved well offshore and the sun has returned. There will be melting taking place today with the sunshine, but untreated areas that are not exposed to the sun will remain icy.
Why the sustained warmth? The overall jet stream pattern has been stuck up to the north, keeping the cold air locked in Canada. And there’s no snow cover. Snow reflects the sun’s rays back into the atmosphere, keeping it cool.
Wednesday’s storm system will be long gone and dry and cooler weather will return for Halloween.
Once again, March ended up being a cold month with overall temperatures -4.4 degrees below average, but a pattern change should bring typical Spring temperatures to the region during the month of April.
Winter and Spring are battling it out today as a classic early Spring clipper system is bringing rain and even some snow in the mountains today.
The calendar say Spring but it does not feel like it, as a persistent winter-like pattern continues.
A storm system currently over the deep south bringing rain and snow will track northeast off the southeast coast Thursday morning. The storm will brush our southern viewing area with a quick round of snow early Thursday morning.
Partly sunny skies will return for Wednesday and it will be breezy with wind gusts up to 25 mph. However, high temperatures remain above average for one more day with highs in the lower 50s.
After a week of mostly cloudy skies, the stubborn clouds over the past few days finally gave way to some sunshine today.
Expect some lingering low clouds, mist and fog early this evening, then skies will begin to clear out tonight, as a cold front moves through. A colder air mass will filter into the Delaware Valley behind the front with lows in the lower 30s tonight.
Shower chances will increase tonight with low temperatures in the 50s.
Clouds will be on the increase tonight ahead of the next storm system. The clouds will keep temperatures milder tonight with a low around 50 degrees.
It was a cool start to the week as clouds and a few showers kept temperatures below average in the 60s today. A warm front will then push through the region tomorrow, brining in a warmer and more humid air mass.
A high pressure system will remain in control for Thursday, keeping skies mostly sunny with highs a bit cooler near 70 degrees.
The heaviest rain will be late Wednesday night into Thursday morning, with the highest amounts across southern NJ & Delaware.
