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.

  • Muggy Air Takes Over Leading To Rainy Days Ahead

    We’ll start this week with an ‘unsettled’ weather pattern setting up, with high pressure to our south and low pressure to our north. That puts us under a steady southerly flow of warm and humid air, which in turns makes it feel less comfortable outside. There’s also a good chance you’ll need the umbrella nearby this week, as a few weak disturbances will take advantage of the extra moisture flowing into the Tennessee Valley to produce scattered showers. To put it […]

  • Satellite Imagery Shows Path of Power Outages After Hurricane Michael

    Hurricane Michael made landfall as a Category 4 storm over Mexico Beach on Wednesday, October 10th. By Thursday skies were clearing and damage was being assessed, in large part with satellites. Thursday morning around 2:45 a.m. (CST) the VIIRS instrument aboard the NOAA-20 satellites took photos of the city lights over the Florida Panhandle and into Southern Alabama and Georgia. Then, the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) compared it to an image from the same instrument about a […]

  • Live Alert 19 FAQs

    Our new Live Alert 19 app includes new features and improvement from our old app, but the new layout means learning how to navigate the new version. To help our viewers stay ahead of the weather and adjust to the new Live Alert 19 more easily we’ve compiled some of our most frequently asked questions about the app. How do I set locations/alerts? There are two places you can add locations within the app: the homepage and the interactive radar […]

  • Draconid Meteor Shower Starts This Weekend

    Another annual meteor shower is set to start up this weekend! The Draconid meteor shower will be active through October 10th, although the best night for viewing is expected to be Monday, October 8th. The Draconid meteor shower tends to be quieter compared to other annual showers, but this year could be different! That’s because the parent meteor that releases the meteors into our atmosphere, recently passed by its closest position to Earth in its path. That means we could […]

  • New Live Alert 19 Delivers Faster Alerts With Improved Technology

    The next time your Live Alert 19 App is updated, you’ll notice a whole new layout to explore, which includes improvements to original features and a few new features too!

You simply scroll up and down to see all of […]

  • A Warm Start To October Is In Store

    This weekend gave us a small taste of fall with cooler mornings, but the fall-like air didn’t stick around for long! As we head into the work week, and the first week of October, we’ll see a return to a more summer-like weather pattern. A large area of high pressure to the south will help pull in a southerly flow over the next few days, putting the Tennessee Valley right in the path of a moisture flow from the south. […]

  • Tropical Development in the Atlantic Possible This Week

    That Atlantic hurricane basin has been mostly quiet since Florence dissipated, but we’re still keeping an eye on potential activity. Tropical Storm Kirk developed off the coast of Africa over the weekend, but has since weakened into a remnant low, meaning the storm is no longer organized or strong enough to be considered a tropical storm. Meanwhile in the open Atlantic, Subtropical Storm Leslie has developed (Subtropical is simply a title to indicate that the storm is not fully tropical, […]

  • First Week Of Fall To Be Warm, Humid, And Stormy At Times

    The autumnal equinox occured Saturday evening just before 9pm, so regardless of how it might feel outside fall has arrived! Of course, just because the equinox has passed doesn’t mean a significant shift in our weather has to follow, and it won’t. A front has been draped to the northwest of Alabama all weekend, separating us from some drier and cooler air to the north. Unfortunately, a large area of high pressure to our east will block the front from […]

  • Happy Autumnal Equinox!

    The autumnal equinox happens over the weekend, at 8:54pm CDT Saturday evening, putting us officially into the fall season (regardless of how it feels outside)! An equinox occurs when the Earth is neither tilted toward or away from the sun. The Earth is tilted by 23.5 degrees on its axis, which why we have seasons in the first place. When the northern hemisphere is tilted toward the sun, we’re in summer; when the northern hemisphere is tilted away from the sun […]

  • Looking Forward To Relief From The Late Summer Heat

    Many of us have our own markers for when fall arrives, whether it’s the first day of meteorological fall (September 1st), right after Labor Day weekend, or when pumpkin spice products hit the shelves. Astronomical fall doesn’t actually begin until after all of these dates though, with the autumnal equinox on September 22nd. Of course, we know that the weather doesn’t always coincide nicely with these dates. The 90s will stick around all the way through the last official week of fall. […]

  • Florence Breaks North Carolina Records

    Florence made landfall Friday morning over Wrightsville Beach and has since slowed down to a crawl – literally – at 2 mph you can walk faster than Florence was moving Saturday morning. It’s that slow movement that is making Florence such an intense and prolonged threat to the Carolinas, despite having weakened slightly to a tropical storm by Friday afternoon. The storm stalling out over the Carolinas keeps it close enough to the coast to continue pulling in moisture from […]

  • Florence Becomes Major Hurricane Again While Heading For The Carolinas

    The Atlantic Hurricane Season is picking up with three different storms  in the Atlantic Basin. Both Isaac and Helene strengthened into Category 1 hurricanes Sunday evening. Since then Helene has strengthened into a Category 2 Hurricane, while Isaac has weakened into a Tropical Storm. The third storm is Hurricane Florence, which is becoming a serious concern to the US as it’s expected to approach the East Coast later this week as a major hurricane. The Threat Of Florence: Florence is currently […]
