I’m the meteorologist for FOX 2 News on Friday and Saturday evenings. You’ll also see me on other KTVI newscasts as well as occasionally filling in on our sister station, KPLR. I also manage content for the stations’ websites, FOX2now.com and KPLR11.com.
Born and raised in north St. Louis County, I graduated from Incarnate Word Academy in 1999. In 2003, I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Geography/Meteorology from Western Illinois University. While in school, I spent the summer of 2002 interning with the FOX 2 weather team.
I headed north and started my career in beautiful Anchorage, AK where I worked for three years as the weekend meteorologist for the CBS affiliate, KTVA. I was thrilled to return home to St. Louis and join FOX 2 in October 2006.
My husband, Glen, and I are huge St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Blues fans. We also love theatre, food trucks, and spending time with our dog, a Samoyed named Mo!
ST. LOUIS – Borderline temps creating a mix of weather, with ongoing freezing rain Thursday morning. Main road temperatures are still holding above freezing, but still expect slick spots for the morning commute, especially on side streets, overpasses, and in parking lots. As we head closer to the morning commute snow may mix in. That should kickback to a mix of rain and snow or all rain this afternoon with temperatures climbing just a bit. Tonight, an area of snow […]
ST. LOUIS – A little bit of everything the next few days as several systems come together. On Wednesday, most of the daylight hours are dry for the St. Louis region. A rain/snow mix arrives late in the day, think middle to end of the evening commute. Some freezing rain and sleet will likely mix in during the evening before it kicks over to all snow in the early hours of Thursday. Temperatures are very marginal so it doesn’t look […]
ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Another cold start in the teens, but wind chills are less of a factor. Light winds turn southerly and that means a bit of a warm-up for us Tuesday. Sunny with highs in the 30°s. Increasing clouds tonight, lows in the 20°s. Those clouds are a sign that another end of the week storm is moving our way. Still, lots of questions because temperatures are borderline. Cloudy during the day Wednesday. Rain or a rain/snow mix […]
VALLEY PARK, Mo. – Our forecast for Friday calls for very heavy rain over a short amount of time making flash flooding is a major concern. And that means area roads may quickly go underwater. Unlike with snow, there’s no pre-treatment for too much rain in too little time. So, crews for the Missouri Department of Transportation are doing what they can to make sure drains and sewers do their jobs. “What we’ve been focusing on are our drains and […]
ST. LOUIS – Smoke could be seen rising over north St. Louis Wednesday, but there wasn’t cause for alarm. This fire was set to promote new life. In November, we introduced you to the only prairie remnant in the St. Louis area, protected from development within Calvary Cemetery. On Wednesday, that prairie went up in flames. It was a prescribed burn, carefully executed under the watch of the Missouri Department of Conservation. “Prescribed fire is a very valuable tool in […]
ST. LOUIS – After near-record temperatures on Christmas, the warm holiday continued on December 26. The St. Louis-area topped out at 69 degrees on Thursday, meaning the record of 70 degrees from 1942 will hold. A cold front will move through overnight. That will mean a cool down for Friday but no precipitation. Partly cloudy, highs in the low-to-mid 50s, a good drop but still above normal. That front lifts back north as a warm front into Saturday, opening the […]
ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – On Tuesday, the St. Louis County Council passed a bill that would open up the possibility of planned archery deer hunts in county parks. More people, more development, less green space, and city ordinances banning the discharge of firearms, all these factors can make it tough to keep expanding deer populations in check in populated areas. Historically, deer populations would have been managed by natural predators, like wolves and mountain lions. With those gone from many […]
ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Within a place known for remembering the dead, a tract of land is teeming with life. “It is a wild spot in the middle of the city.” Tucked away on the north edge of Calvary Cemetery is a little piece of history. It’s not a grave. It’s not even a building. It is the last remaining prairie remnant in the St. Louis area, and it’s been left untouched for thousands of years. “That’s thanks to the […]
EUREKA, Mo. – Wednesday’s strong winds had Santa’s elves working overtime to keep the holiday spirit going. Wind gusts of 40 to 60 mph early in the morning resulted in damage across Missouri and Illinois, including at Santa’s Magical Kingdom in Eureka, where a mess was made of trees and light displays. Employees worked throughout the day to get everything repaired so that St. Louis-area families could still be entertained by the time the sun went down. Santa’s Magical Kingdom […]
ST. CHARLES, Mo. – For much of the late spring and early summer, the Bi-state region’s rivers were in flood, leading to millions of dollars in damages. But forecasters are already worried for what spring 2020 may have in store. Both the Missouri and Mississippi rivers finally dropped below the flood action stage earlier this week, but there’s still a lot of water flowing through those river basins. If you look at USGS flow percentiles, both rivers are running way […]
ST. CHARLES, Mo. – The temperatures are up and so are the holiday decorations at the Streets of St. Charles. On Wednesday, they held the first Lighting On Beale, the street that runs through the heart of this busy residential and shopping development. St. Charles Mayor Dan Borgmeyer flipped the switch to light the 24-foot-tall holiday tree, located on the north end near the Drury Plaza Hotel. Wednesday’s fun also includes a holiday market featuring local vendors, smores and hot […]
CREVE COEUR, Mo. – Wednesday’s slight warm-up means good news for area high school soccer teams competing in the Missouri state high school playoffs. Tuesday’s school cancellations due to snow and cold also led to game cancellations. But it was game on Wednesday in Creve Coeur, where the De Smet Spartans are set to take on the Pattonville Pirates. Wednesday’s temperatures may still be running nearly 20 degrees below normal, but it is above freezing and that’s warm enough for […]
