Jaclyn’s Zany Weather Forecast Conjurs Memories of Marcia Yockey [Video]

 Earlier this week, Jaclyn stepped out from behind the radio mic and in front of a television camera.  She was a guest host on the Eyewitness News Lifestyles show.  Meteorologist David Heckard, clearly not in his right mind at the given moment, let Jaclyn give the old "green screen" a whirl and things went about as well as expected.  Jaclyn looked like one of Barker's Beauties on crack.  She pointed the wrong direction, proved to the world she never had a geography lesson and blocked the path of storm fronts trying to enter the tri-state.  Jac's weather forecast was hilarious and, as our buddy Mitch Edwards pointed out, was a bit reminiscent of a local weather legend . . . Marcia Yockey.  Marcia, like Jaclyn, was animated, unpredictable and a blast to watch.  Check out this awesome highlight reel . . .

Lightning Safety Tips

I was sitting in my apartment Thursday night, and I was calm. I was watching a movie I had saved on my DVR, but I was checking Twitter on my phone to keep up with any severe weather information.

If you hear thunder, a thunderstorm is close enough to pose an immediate lightning threat to your location.

Here are some tips to keep you safe if you are outside an a storm strikes.
