Just in time for the return of warm weather, NBC10 is welcoming in new meteorologist Tammie Souza, who was hired in early January after Sheena Parveen left the station to join NBC4 in the nation's capital.
Souza enters the Delaware Valley after previous roles in Chicago, Tampa/St. Petersburg, Milwaukee and Chico, California. Her most recent position was at FOX32 in Chicago, where she served as both the weekday morning and weekend meteorologist.
At NBC10, Souza will be seen at 5 p.m. and 11 p.m.
"Tammie’s engaging personality and passion for weather will be a great addition to the NBC10 First Alert Weather team,” said Anzio Williams, vice president of news for NBC10 and Telemundo62. “Having covered many severe weather events, including blizzards, tornados, wildfires and hurricanes, her expertise will complement our weather team’s coverage in the Greater Philadelphia region.”
“Weather has been my passion since childhood,” Souza, a Pennsylvania native, said in a statement. “I was hooked when my grandfather took me flying in a small plane and there was no turning back when I saw my first tornado. From storm chasing to blizzards to hurricanes, I’ve seen it all and have forecasted it all. Now, I’m excited for the next chapter in my life to unfold in Philadelphia, which is known for its various weather patterns. You get a little bit of everything – from record heat, to nor’easters, below-freezing temperatures and even tornadoes.”
Souza officially begins the first week of March.
