Sharon Meyer

Sharon Meyer leads the team of Meteorologists at WCAX-TV and provides weather forecasts on the Channel 3 News at 6:00PM.

Sharon grew up outside of Boston MA, but when she came to Vermont to attend college, she knew she never wanted to leave. Where else can you find a job you love, and "live in a postcard"?

She became the lead forecaster, and director of the weather department, when Stuart Hall retired in 1990.

She has a BS from the University of Vermont, and has been a member of the American Meteorological Society since 1988.

Sharon is best known for her versatility. She frequently includes garden tips, foliage tours, nature notes, and finds time for her "pet" project... finding homes for animals from the local Humane Societies.

She is busy away from the station as well. She enjoys family time, travel, baseball, boating, hiking and skiing.

She is married, and is the glowing owner of two dogs.

Inside the Forecast

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 85°
  • 61°

Well, we ended up with a very successful holiday weekend after all.  Two of the three holiday weekend days turned out just fine.  Labor Day turned out to be a very warm & humid day.

It will be warm & muggy again today, but we are also expecting active weather today as a cold front comes at us from the west.  A few showers & t-storms will pop up during the afternoon.  But the most active bunch of storms will come through in the evening and into the first part of the overnight hours, when we could get some heavy downpours and small hail, along with strong wind gusts and lightning.

Once the cold front goes by, we can look forward to more comfortable weather for Wednesday, as humidity levels come down.

We'll slowly warm up again as we get into the latter part of the week.

Then another cold front will come through late Friday into early Saturday with more showers & t-storms.  That front will usher in even cooler air for the end of the weekend into the start of next week.

Keep an eye to the sky today for stormy weather. If you see lightning or hear thunder, head indoors!
