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.
Drabick is a 2004 graduate of Millersville University where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology, with a minor in Environmental Geography. He has since brought that passion for meteorology back to the classroom by teaching a weather course at Salisbury University. Drabick is a member of the American Meteorological Society (AMS). 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.
The past few days have been colder than average with highs only in the 40s with some flurries around, but a better chance to see some widespread snow will arrive on Tuesday.
As expected, upper-level energy over the southern U.S. is developing a low pressure system off the southeast coast Tuesday morning. The low will continue to intensify and track up the east coast, but how far offshore is still the question.
While this storm will be nothing like Sandy, its main impacts will be felt along the shore with another round of rain, wind, and tidal flooding.
November is a common time for nor’easters to occur and we are currently in a classic weather pattern for them to develop.
The 2012 hurricane season has been active with now 18 named storms. With the peak of hurricane season long gone, climatology shows another little spike in activity in October.
Venus is in transit, which means it will pass between the Earth and the sun.
The 2011 hurricane season was impressive, with 19 named storms and 7 that became hurricanes. So what’s in store this year?
The unofficial start to summer will feel like mid summer this weekend with a hot and humid weather pattern in place.
A couple of systems will bring some much needed rain to the Delaware Valley this weekend.
A warm air mass continues to build into the Delaware Valley and peak on Monday with high temperatures about 25 degrees above average.
The past two weeks consisted of several days with temperatures 15 to around 30 degrees above average. It was a bit unusual for the month of March since we average in the low to mid 50s.
It’s colder than average temperatures, something we haven’t talked about much all winter long. An upper-level jet stream trough has positioned itself over the mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
Along with the wind, a jet stream disturbance triggered off a few bands of some heavier snow, which came through late this morning and early afternoon.
The mild winter continues as spring-like temperatures return to the forecast over the next few days.
It seems like Presidents Day weekend is a magnet for snowstorm potential. There have been some historical storms this time of year for the Delaware Valley.
