Garry joined the station in April of 2019 as the weekend meteorologist. As a Kansas City native, he’s excited to be back home. He’s a graduate of the University of Missouri and before he made the full circle back home, he had a couple of stops in Arizona and Michigan. He’s very much looking forward to getting back to the exciting weather of the Central Plains. That’s where his fascination of weather began at a young age. He’s looking forward to working with the other members of the FOX4 weather team that he’s either grown up watching, or gone to school with!
When you don’t see him on air, Garry is likely at the golf course or traveling. He also loves the Royals and came back for the 2014 and 2015 World Series games.
He’s very excited to be back home with friends and family and he’s looking forward to seeing you around town at many of the fun events and everything else going on around town!
We’ll have cold sunshine across the area for Chiefs Sunday! Bundle up if you’re heading to Arrowhead this morning as temps are in the teens with a wind chill close to zero. Highs top out in the low 20s by the end of the day. A quick-hitting burst of snow still looks possible on the MO side Monday, especially in the afternoon. Totals could add up to 1″ at the most for some parts of the eastern viewing area. The […]
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Last week’s game had some freezing drizzle, and we’ve had a good snow game this year at Arrowhead, but we don’t have to deal with any of that this Sunday. Tailgaters will, however, have to deal with significantly colder wind chills than we’ve had over the last few days. When the gates to the parking lot open, expect the wind chill to be anywhere from -3 to 5 degrees. By kickoff, things won’t improve too much, […]
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — We’re Weather Aware starting early Friday morning and continuing through the evening. Freezing rain, sleet, and snow are all expected at some point during the day. We’ll fight some dry air early Friday morning, but once this system gets closer to us, most of the precipitation initially falls as snow. This should begin between 4-6 a.m., and will continue to pick up during rush hour. This will stick immediately and should create a very messy rush […]
It’s not going to be anything like what we’ve been dealing with the last 48 hours, but we may have to deal with a wintry mix on Sunday afternoon. If you’re tailgating early, it’s going to be on the cold side….but the sun should be out and the wind out of the SE. That’s going to help warm us up a little bit before we cloud back up. Pack your sunglasses! The sunshine reflecting off that fresh snowpack is going […]
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Winter Storm Watch has been issued ahead of our first winter storm of 2020. Freezing rain, sleet, and snow are all expected at some point this weekend, so make sure you stay weather aware. Heavy rain and even a few thunderstorms are possible on Friday before we make the transition to wintry precipitation. That should happen closer to sunset with the transition beginning somewhere between 4-6 p.m. While this initially will make things very slick, […]
A pretty active radar for the end of December as temperatures are fairly mild outside. As this warm front continues to slide northward, we’re monitoring the possibility of severe weather later on this evening. The Storm Prediction Center has areas south of the immediate metro under a Slight risk for severe weather. This would be pretty common for us in April or May, but not so much December. So it’s already raining, when can we expect the intensity to increase? […]
Normally we’re talking about snow arriving this time of year, but that’s not going to be the case this weekend. Heavy rain and thunderstorms will be moving in courtesy of this disturbance to our southwest. We’re going to be on the warm side of this front initially, and that’s when most of the precip occurs before things get cold again. Let’s start with temperatures on Saturday: we’re heading close to 60 again for the 3rd time within a week! Unlike […]
It’s not something we hear about too often, but freezing fog is a good possibility early Tuesday morning. That’s already been the case late Monday night in southern Nebraska, and ridge of high pressure partially responsible for this is getting closer to us overnight. We’re Weather Aware until 10 a.m. Tuesday. Normally we can handle fog pretty well. Sure, there are some visibility issues, but when you add a freezing component, that changes things a bit. Temperatures are already dropping […]
After many locations received between 4-8″ during the day on Sunday, we’ve got a break. That doesn’t mean the roads are fully clear, but conditions are improving out there. The quiet won’t last long, however, as our next round of snow arrives Monday. We’ll remain Weather Aware for Monday with light snow beginning during the morning rush hour. Unlike Sunday, though, this will be more limited to areas south of the metro. Snow will spread further north later in the […]
We’ve been talking about it for several days, and it’s getting much more clear: it’s going to snow Sunday. This is going to be a snow that needs to be shoveled for most of us, but when does the heaviest snow fall? There are two specific systems that are going to bring us snowfall the next 48 hours. Our first system arrives early Sunday and snow slowly picks up. By late morning into the early afternoon hours, that’s when I’d […]
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — We’re following four models, but only one solution is correct… choose wisely! No, this is not a line from the upcoming Star Wars film, but a sample of what we’re looking at when it comes to forecasting solutions for this weekend’s snow. One thing you’ll notice in the video above: Snow is a common solution this weekend. How much of that “wintry mix” pushes in will affect our totals. At this point, I’m expecting snowfall intensity to […]
It’s the first part of December and the wintry season is upon us. We’ve gotten close to 2″ of snowfall officially and the month of December averages about 5″ of snow. There’s no sign that we’re going to add to that snowfall tally anytime soon. The long range forecast from the Climate Prediction Center has most of the metro right under the bullseye of the “highest chance for above average temperatures” for the first two weeks in December. For perspective, […]
