Meteorologist Gabrielle Deabler joined the WHNT News 19 Weather Team in August 2016. Her move to Huntsville comes after spending the previous year as the morning meteorologist for WWAY in Wilmington, NC where she first fell in love with the South.

Before embracing southern living she was Midwestern, born and raised in Missouri. That’s where her passion for the weather was born as well. Constantly in awe of Missouri’s wide range of weather extremes, she grew up waiting for storms every spring and hoping for snow every winter.

Her love for science and mathematics in school eventually lead her to the University of Missouri where she graduated a proud Tiger in May of 2015 with her Bachelor of Science in Atmospheric Sciences.
While attending Mizzou she also had the chance to work as the weekend meteorologist for KMIZ in Columbia, Mo. This job gave her immeasurable experience in severe weather coverage. In the two years she worked there she covered tornado outbreaks, flash flooding, blizzards, ice storms, and more.

Gabrielle is always keeping up with the world of weather and is a member of the American Meteorological Society.

Gabrielle is also an avid reader of all genres and encourages everyone to support their local library! Her other interests include hiking, yoga, and her cat Parker.

  • Dry weather is moving in, but did we get enough rain?

Dewpoints measure how much moisture is in the air with a dewpoint over 60 usually considered uncomfortably humid. This isn’t abnormal for early June, but you might still be relieved to know it’s going to feel more like early May by midweek. A cold front will move south over Northern Alabama Tuesday morning to usher in cooler and […]

  • Unsettled weather will make for a wet week ahead

    Huntsville has picked up 4.32 inches of rain in the last 10 days alone and more rain is still to come. You might be ready for more sunshine, but we still need the rain. Despite the soggy conditions Huntsville is still facing a rainfall deficit of 1.57 inches since the beginning of the year.
