Meteorologist Katie Fehlinger joined CBS 3 and The CW Philly’s morning news team in September, 2011.
Previously, Fehlinger had been the weekend morning news forecaster for WCBS in New York. Before coming to CBS, Fehlinger was a forecaster for nearly five years at AccuWeather, Inc. in State College, Pennsylvania. While at AccuWeather, Fehlinger served as a regular football, baseball, and hockey game day weather reporter for several regional Fox Sports Networks, NESN, YES, and the Big Ten Network. She has appeared on a host of other major networks including FOX News, FOX Business, ESPN and ABC. Fehlinger’s reports brought a niche emphasis to climate change issues and the weather’s effects on sports.
A Lehigh Valley native, Fehlinger began her broadcasting career there at RCN 4 located in Bath, Pennsylvania and later did feature reporting for WLVT-TV’s Emmy award-winning news/magazine show Tempo! In 2006 she switched her focus to weather – and her passion for meteorology has grown ever since. Her first-ever live shot was an update for FOX News on the tornadoes ripping through the Midwest. “I never had a more exciting moment professionally,” says Fehlinger. “I knew I had chosen the right career.”
Fehlinger graduated summa cum laude from Cedar Crest College in Allentown with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications. She also holds a Bachelor of Sciences degree in geosciences from Mississippi State University.
Fehlinger now resides in Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
Philadelphia was just shy of tying a record low Friday morning with the thermometer bottoming out at 11 degrees.
Getting snowed in by Thursday’s nor’easter may have provided another excuse to snuggle with your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, but don’t get too comfortable!
But yes, a large storm looms on the horizon. Winter Storm Watches are already slated to take effect late Wednesday night, a sign there’s high confidence that this storm will significantly impact our region.
Despite a brief break, the active weather pattern will get underway again Tuesday night. Our second large storm of the week moves in overnight into Wednesday morning as a mixed bag of snow, ice and rain (which could freeze on contact).
Two areas of low pressure are converging on the greater Philadelphia region, set to leave behind significant snow and dangerously cold air. Snowfall begins around sunset and won’t let up until Friday late in the morning.
A relatively tranquil weather pattern will help kick off the New Year in Philadelphia. However, don’t expect it to last very long! The ingredients of our next snow storm are starting to organize in the central U.S.
Another system is set to streak across the Midwest and arrive in the Delaware Valley in time for the morning drive Tuesday.
The best shot for snow was through the north and west-most counties, and Winter Storm Warnings remain in effect until early Sunday morning for that region.
The next storm set to deliver fresh snow to the Delaware Valley continues to gather strength and moisture in the central U.S., eventually streaking through the Ohio Valley and arriving just in time for the weekend.
As a large storm encroaches on the Delaware Valley, the Eyewitness Weather Team continues to fine tune the details.
Sizzling sunshine will scorch us here in the Delaware Valley again Thursday, with a huge ridge of high pressure pumping in more heat and humidity from the southwest.
A beautiful end to the work week, and one of those days you’ll want to enjoy while you can … because it won’t last long!
Tuesday will be a nicer day compared to Monday with no umbrellas required with some sun and a high temperature of 46. However, it will be a breezy day with gusts peaking around 30 mph in between systems.
The coldest air thus far this season is taking over, and being reinforced by a quickly evolving and fast-moving system that will also usher in a little light snow mainly late this evening, just enough to drop a nuisance coating across the Delaware Valley.
Calling all night owls & early birds – this one’s for you! Grab a nice heavy coat, a warm fuzzy hat, a mug of coffee – and just look up.
