Bilo, a native of Phoenixville, returned to the Delaware Valley from AccuWeather in State College, Pennsylvania where she had been a meteorologist since 2004. During her tenure with the weather service, she provided forecasts on TV and radio for numerous AccuWeather clients including FOX News, CNBC, ABC News Now and many local stations.

Bilo also enjoys traveling, bike riding and taking long walks. A thunderstorm junkie, her dream is to one day go on a tornado chase in the Plains.
Bilo is married and the mother of two young sons.
We’ve been enjoying a nice little blast of summer-like warmth here in the first week of October, but that’s all about to change this weekend!
Remember the first week of September last year? All the kids going back to school, Labor Day picnics and, oh yes, over 6″ of rain in four days thanks to the slow-moving moisture and circulation around what was once Tropical Storm Lee. This rain led to some of the worst flooding Central PA has ever seen.
It was a gorgeous weekend for most of us (especially those away from the coast), but we are now paying our dues as a week of unsettled weather sets up across the Delaware Valley.
Well, we made it through our first real snow of the season – the official total thus far at the airport was 2.3″, which means today’s snow was more than four times the previous total for the entire winter thus far.
By Kate Bilo PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Today was certainly the calm before the storm – lots of sunshine and blue skies, but it was COLD outside! If you look on Live Mega Doppler 3 this [...]
After a pretty snow-starved winter, we finally have a few chances for snow in the forecast. Nothing huge, and if this were last year or the year before, it would be merely a blip on our colelctive radar, but for those who have been patiently awaiting the arrival of ANY snow, it will be welcome.
We’ve been enjoying some pretty fantastic weather across the Delaware Valley lately, but that looks like it might change this week as a much more active pattern begins to develop over the Northeast.
On Monday, the city of Denver, CO hit a record high of 80 degrees with abundant sunshine. The forecast for Wednesday? 34 degrees with heavy snow. Imagine going from summer to winter within the span of a day!
Last year, as we know, was a record-setting year for days above the 90 degree mark and the 4th of July was no different – we hit 96 last year, went on to 98 the following day, and then “enjoyed” two straight days in the triple digits! That’s the kind of heat where you just want to relax in a nice pool filled with ice cubes!
In this edition of Backyard BBQ, Kate Bilo joins the family of Lauren Lucini in the Fox Chase section of Northeast Philadelphia.
By Kate Bilo: I can honestly say that in all my time studying weather, geeking out over weather, being a severe weather fanatic, I have never quite seen or heard of anything that compares to the utter destruction of yesterday’s tornado outbreak in Alabama.
This spring, it seems we’re having a hard time stringing together two or three nice days in a row!
Well, it may be spring, but yet another “winter” storm has us in its sights!
