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.
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.
February 5th is National Weatherperson’s Day which commemorates the birth of John Jeffries who is one of America’s first weather observers.
January ended and February begins with spring-like temperatures. Highs both days soared into the 60s ranging 20-25 degrees above the average.
As we head into the last few days of January, the monthly temperatures remain well above average. You can blame the lack of cold so far on the La Nina pattern, which is cooler than average equatorial Pacific Ocean water temperatures.
The first widespread winter storm finally impacted the Delaware Valley this weekend dropping an average of 2-4” of snow with some amounts up to 6” and areas of freezing rain.
Temperatures this weekend stayed below average as quick shot of arctic air blasted into the Delaware Valley. Highs on Saturday made it into the mid 30s with the average high being in the upper 30s.
Highs on Sunday reached the mid to upper 40s which is still well above the average high of 40 degrees. Temperatures will cool down a bit more into the low to mid 40s for Monday as an area of low pressure tracks by to our south.
A large area of high pressure is situated over the Delaware Valley keeping the forecast dry, but it has brought a brief surge of cold air.
After a cool start to the weekend with a high of 50 on Saturday, southerly winds with sunshine bumped temperatures in the upper 50s today.
