For longtime FOX 5 meteorologist Sue Palka, her forecast is that change is pending.
On air, Palka announced that she will soon be “stepping back from her weather duties” at the Bethesda- based station, which covers the D.C. metropolitan area.
“This is something I’ve been planning to do for a while, but it’s been harder to let go than I anticipated,” Palka said.
She also spoke about her desire to spend more time with her family.
According to WTOP, Palka began forecasting the weather for WTTG in late 1985, “at a time when one of the anchors of the station’s single 10 p.m. newscast was Maury Povich and the use of computer graphics had only just begun.
“She said her last day will be March 23. But, she’s not disappearing entirely. Palka said later this year, she’ll start doing feature reporting for the station and continue to make regular live appearances.”
Palka has won six Emmy Awards for weather forecasting during her time at FOX 5.
