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'm also on during Good Morning America with various mini weather updates.

I am a believer, a husband, and a tech geek. Oh yeah, and a bit of a weather geek too. There's nothing wrong with being a geek! Embrace who you are and what you love to do.

My approach to TV weather is pretty simple: I want to give a weather forecast that informs you, educates you, and even makes you laugh once in a while. I am not going to talk over your head with extra weather jargon and fluff. 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, 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!
