Feature Foercast: Corpus Christi, Texas, Feature Forecaster: Matt Terhune

This week, Matt Terhune of KRIS-TV in Corpus Christi, Texas, has graciously agreed to join us for a Feature Forecast this Friday morning. First, let’s see let Mr. Terhune introduce himself.

I’m a Texan. Raised in Klein, TX, northwest Houston suburb. After Klein HS I went to Texas A&M in College Station as a Chemical Engineer student, but I decided I liked weather better and changed to meteorology. I graduated May 1999. I interned at KBTX in Bryan to learn the tv weather world and took class from an Aggie meteorologist that was on a station in Dallas too.
My first tv meteorologist job was in February before in graduated at KXXV-25 in Waco. I then lived in Waco less than 2 years.
March 2001 I moved to KRIS-6 in Corpus Christi. In general, bigger city, better pay :-). They’ve moved me around from morning/noon shift to weekends, to morning/noon, back to weekends.
You can find me on the kristv.com website.

So that’s the scoop on KRIS-TV’s Matt Terhune. What’s the forecast for Corpus Christi this weekend?

I just see some isolated showers Saturday and scattered showers in Sunday. So little better chance on Sunday.
Saturday, low 74 with a high of 88
Sunday, low of 72 with a high of 87

A special thanks to Matt Terhune for joining us this morning. Check him out on KRIS-TV weekends in Corpus Christi!

Feature Forecast: Wheeling, West Virginia, Feature Forecaster: Brian Davis

We are happy to have WTRF meteorologist Brian Davis joining us here at Victoria-Weather today. Let’s find out more about Brian and see what the forecast is for Wheeling!

Greetings everyone, Let me introduce myself: I am Brian Davis, meteorologist at WTRF-TV in the Wheeling WV market. Before coming to a more quiet weather region, I worked in Joplin Missouri where and was there during the EF-5 monster tornado. It was a sad time there, but I learned more about these devastating tornadoes. After my years of radio broadcasting I worked hard to gain the NWA and AMS seals of approval in radio weather broadcasting. My school ventures include the University of Tennessee At Martin where I received a bachelors degree focused in geology, operational meteorology, and natural disaters. I also graduated with advanced standing from Mississippi State University’s broadcast meteorology program. I still continue this weather love affair by taking advanced graduate courses in operational meteorology at MSU. My family accuses me of being a life long addicted student in meteorology. Becoming a broadcast meteorologist was tough as nails, but it was a dream come true.

Enough about this guy! Let’s talk weekend weather!

The Dog Days of Summer have brought well below normal temperatures over the Ohio Valley over the last few days. This has been enough to change some of our trees into a fall looking scene. Meanwhile, big storms have rolled over the great plains while the southeast has seen it’s share of flooding rains. Other parts of the lower 48 seem to be fairly quiet in the world of weather.

High pressure and a series of Canadian cold fronts have controlled Ohio Valley weather for several days now, but a warmup is on the way for our weekend. Warmer weather will return as a large high allows for plenty of sunshine and moderating temperatures. A couple of pleasant and mostly sunny days can be expected as our regional temperatures will return to the normal 80s for highs and 60s for lows. Here is a look at what can be expected in the Pittsburgh PA and nearby Wheeling WV general areas. Have a great weekend everyone!

Feature Forecast: Eastern Iowa; Feature Forecaster: Jennifer Hildreth

We are fortunate enough to have a guest to take us into the weekend! Jennifer Hildreth from KGAN, the CBS outlet in Cedar Rapids. So I don’t steal any of her thunder, I will let her take things away!

Hi, I am Jennifer Hildreth. As a kid, I became hooked on weather after a tornado ripped through my hometown in the middle of the night, with no warning. Okay, not sure if I would call it hooked exactly….probably more like terrified. Either way, I eventually took an interest in learning as much as I could about tornadoes and the weather. However, it took a while for me to figure out that I wanted to make weather my career. I started college at the University of Northern Iowa majoring in Elementary Education. After a year, I decided that it was not the career path I wanted to follow. So I switched gears and changed schools. In 2003, I graduated from Iowa State University with a BS in Meteorology.

I am currently a weekend meteorologist and feature reporter at KGAN & KFXA, the CBS & FOX affiliate in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  I have only worked here for about 7 months. Before that, I spent 5 years as the weekend meteorologist at KWWL (NBC affiliate) in Waterloo, Iowa.  Both stations cover most of eastern Iowa.  Since I am originally from Waverly, Iowa, it is nice getting to work and forecast for the area where I was born and raised.

Okay enough about me, let’s get to the forecast.

An area of high pressure will move southeast into the Midwest for the weekend.  This means dry, but cooler weather in eastern Iowa this weekend.  Below is a picture of the surface map for Saturday morning.

Since the area of high pressure will be almost directly overhead on Saturday, we will see mostly sunny skies and light northerly winds. But even with the sunshine, temperatures will only warm into the upper 40s by Saturday afternoon.  A weak disturbance will move through Minnesota on Saturday night into Sunday. This will bring light rain chances to central Minnesota, but we will remain dry with only a few clouds here in eastern Iowa. The clouds will help to keep us slightly warmer Saturday night, but they will also keep us chilly on Sunday.  Below is a look at the weekend forecast for eastern Iowa.
