No Glasses, No Problem – View the eclipse from Huntsville
  • Follow me on:

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.

  • Scientists Prepare for the Great American Eclipse

    The sun is the main driving force behind our weather, because it heats the Earth’s surface. That means a solar eclipse will affect the weather by blocking out the sun, even if it’s just for a few minutes. We know that as we lose the sun’s heating temperatures will begin to cool down. As temperatures cool down, winds tend to lighten near the surface and we see a decrease in weather that’s driven by heating (such as cumulus clouds, which […]

  • Waning gibbous moon limits our view of the Perseid meteor shower this year

    The Perseid Meteor Shower is usually one of the showiest of the year. It always comes around in late July through mid August, making for pleasant summertime viewing. This year it peaks August 12-13, but it will be tough to get a good view. We’re only 4 days past our full moon, which puts the moon in the waning gibbous phase this weekend. That’s still full enough that the light from the moon will block out a lot of meteors. […]

  • Heavy rain falls across the Valley Monday

    The Weather Prediction Center issued a Mesoscale Precipitation Discussion Monday afternoon, which means they expect significant rainfall over a region; in this case over Alabama and Mississippi. Since Sunday afternoon most of the Valley has picked up at least half an inch of rain.

  • Wet weather expected this week

    The dry and pleasant weather we experienced Saturday won’t be seen again for a while as an unsettled weather pattern sets up this week. Sunday afternoon a warm front will move over the Valley, leaving us in a strong southerly flow. That allows more warm and humid air to settle in, also sparking off a few afternoon storms. Storms Sunday afternoon will be widely scattered, meaning there’s a good chance that you’ll get rain today but it won’t rain all […]
