Meteorologist Kate Bilo joined the Eyewitness News weather team on CBS 3 and The CW Philly in October, 2010. Bilo forecasts weather for Eyewitness News weekdays at 5 and 6 p.m.
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. She had also been the main morning weather anchor for the Bloomberg Television Network.
Bilo is a 2003 graduate of Penn State University where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Spanish and International Business. She also has a Bachelor of Science degree in Geosciences from Mississippi State University.
A certified bookworm, Bilo sets a goal to read 100 books each year. In her effort to help children develop a love of reading, she serves as Champion of Reading for the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Summer Reading program, visiting libraries to read to them. 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.
The summer warmth is living on borrowed time, as a cold front will move through Tuesday afternoon and evening.
The Memorial Day Weekend breakdown across the region.
An active pattern through the end of the week will eventually give way to a pleasant holiday weekend, with warming expected each day and increasing amounts of sunshine.
It will certainly feel warmer and steamier, but we also have the threat for showers and thunderstorms around through the afternoon. But these are just an appetizer, so to speak.
We’ll head back to the 80′s with sunshine on Thursday but once again, showers and storms are in the forecast – and then Friday ends up being a washout with heavy thunderstorms rolling through all day.
Clouds have been slow to break on this Friday, but you can feel the warmer air in place across the region – warmth that is poised to stick around into the weekend and next week!
It’s been a tale of two days as we started out with sunshine and pleasant conditions and will finish on a cloudy, damp note as showers move through the area.
Turbulence is fact of flying and sometimes a frightening one.
Flood waters continue to recede at this hour as today’s dry, sunny weather has helped the area begin to recover from yesterday’s devastating floods. Many of our area waterways charted Top 5 historic flood levels, and beat the numbers from our last major flooding disaster, Hurricane Irene in 2011.
The rain has been falling heavily all day, with many areas checking in with over two inches of rain.
Just one day after a deadly tornado tore through the towns of Mayflower and Vilonia in Arkansas, a dangerous severe weather outbreak is underway once again, this time slightly to the east.
This storm is also producing dangerous thunderstorms to our south, across portions of North Carolina and Virginia, where tornadoes have been spotted. Luckily for us, the threat for severe weather will stay south, but we will hear a few rumbles of thunder tonight as the rain moves through.
Winds will die down rapidly this evening into tonight, eventually becoming calm. And as a system approaches from the west, we can expect more moisture in the air leading to less risky conditions.
Fire danger will remain high right through the day on Thursday as winds will gust to 30mph once again.
Despite sunshine and highs in the 60′s on Wednesday, winds will be very strong all day and that will make it feel noticeably colder than the thermometer indicates.
