Meteorologist Drew Anderson has your updated forecast Friday and Saturday nights on Eyewitness News.

In the background of each forecast, you’ll see Drew showcase a local town.  He has photographed local landmarks—by the hundreds, beginning at WGAL.

For years, Drew served as WGAL’s noon and weekend morning meteorologist.  During inclement weather, he’d report live from across the Susquehanna Valley.

Across the Susquehanna River at FOX 43 WPMT, Drew brought an interactive twist to stories as a morning show reporter, and he helped the weather team as a fill-in meteorologist.

Up the River in Harrisburg, Drew spent some time at WHP CBS21 doing weather, traffic, and news reporting.

Farther up the Susquehanna at Eyewitness News, you’ll also catch Drew’s forecasts live from the rooftop, the street, or even the Pocono Raceway!  From time to time, he’ll produce and guest host our lifestyles talk show, PA Live!

No stranger to Pennsylvania, Drew “hails” from Chester County, and he graduated from Penn State with laureate distinction.

It took him only three and a half years to earn all the credits needed for his Bachelor of Science in Meteorology and minors in both communications and information science. 

At Penn State, he spent time as a mathematics teaching assistant, a weather camp counselor, and as the program director for the University's film channel.

In the past, Drew gained national attention from a live forecast on ESPN's College GameDay and from a live report on The Weather Channel.

Drew had an unforgettable experience in the Midwest as a storm chaser, and he provided forecasts and reports to an NBC station in Tornado Alley. 

Over the years, he has lead live, continuous tornado warning coverage for stations like WUTR in New York.

Farther north, Canadian viewers watched Drew on two Vermont stations.

Closer to home, Drew brought evening forecasts to all of Pennsylvania on PCN TV's "Weather World.” For C-NET TV's "Weather or Not," he anchored, reported, and traveled across the state, including a trip to Punxsutawney on Groundhog Day.

He spent a summer interning at CBS3 in Philadelphia and at WGAL in Lancaster, and he spent a year doing research for The Pennsylvania State Climate Office.

On the radio, Drew had a weekend music show at T102 in Pottsville, voiced an afternoon classic rock show on WKPS, did production work at WBUS, and gave live forecasts on WMGK.  Many central and eastern Pennsylvania radio stations have aired his forecasts, too.

Several newspapers in northeastern Pennsylvania have published his weekly weather articles and so has FOX Weather.

As a member of the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association, Drew attended conferences across the country to keep current on the latest meteorological findings.

The National Weather Service certified him in severe weather spotting, and he received several awards in meteorology, including one from AccuWeather.

Drew even earned the prestigious Certified Broadcast Meteorologist seal of approval from the American Meteorological Society. 

In the community, Drew has taught Boy and Girl Scouts about weather, visited schools for career days, brought experiments to science classes, and lectured students at Elizabethtown College, the Harrisburg Area Community College, and Penn State York, and Penn State University Park. 

Having judged food competitions, including one sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society, Drew still loves learning about food and believes he can identify the secret spice in any dish. 

After eating his way across all fifty states—twice, and across parts of every continent but Antarctica, he still travels often.

Drew also had a small role in a low-budget vampire movie and an extra role in a Bollywood movie.
