Welcome to the site!

Hi everyone! Thanks for checking things out. As of October 2016, I am the morning meteorologist for Good Morning Cleveland in Ohio. Catch my forecasts weekday mornings from 4:30am to 7:00am.

I am a believer, a husband, and a tech geek. Oh yeah, and a bit of a weather geek. There's nothing wrong with being a weather geek!
In October of 2016 I was honored to receive an Emmy Award for my on air work. To be recognized by my peers means so much.

My approach to TV weather is pretty simple: I want to give you a weather forecast that informs you, educates you, and perhaps even makes you laugh once in a while. I am not going to talk over your head with extra weather jargon. Weather guys like that can cause you to miss the forecast entirely!
Weather these days is a two-way street. You need me and I need you. I look forward to your input and photos/videos during bad weather.

If you'd like, be sure to follow me on Twitter (@jdrudd) and find my Facebook page too! Links to my social media pages are just below or up at the very top-right of the site.

Here's hoping it's your kind of weather outside right now!
