Greetings and salutations! I happily joined the Fox 43 Weather Smart Team in November of 2018. I packed my bags and settled into South-Central PA after spending a year and a half forecasting the fickle and tricky weather patterns of West Virginia. While in Clarksburg, I worked for WDTV as the weekday morning and noon meteorologist. Prior to living in the wild and wonderful state, I spent some time in radio broadcasting as well, delivering forecasts to multiple stations in the Southeast.

Now, let’s rewind. I was born and raised in the city that never sleeps. From snowy winters to hot and humid summers, weather in New York City is rarely regular or boring. The desire to learn and master one of the most unpredictable phenomena in the world is what has driven me to become a meteorologist. I took my passion for weather to Rutgers University and graduated in 2017 with a major in Meteorology and minor in Business Administration. Throughout my 4 years in college, I created and delivered forecasts in our very own studio. I spent many long days interning in the newsrooms of News 12 New Jersey, ABC’s Good Morning America and World News Tonight. I have always been fascinated with all things weather but snow in particular is my favorite, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to forecast South Central PA’s winter weather! Keeping you safe when dangerous weather is imminent is my main priority.

On rare occasion when I’m not weather crazy, I have other interests as well! I learned how to play the piano at a very young age and I love sitting down and mastering a new piece. Cuddling up on my couch with my kitten Timmy and watching HGTV is another one of my guilty pleasures. If you have any questions about weather, I have the answer! Reach out to me on social media through Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Or we can chat about weather the old fashioned way – send me an email at jpash@fox43.com.
