KHQ, SWX - Meet the KHQ Local News, SWX Local Sports Team - Spokane, North Idaho News & Weather KHQ.com

Amy's interest in weather came at a very young age. What started off as a fear of storms turned into a passion for weather and forecasting. Amy is a native of the Midwest, growing up in southern Minnesota and attending the University of Wisconsin- Madison, where she earned a degree in Atmospheric and Oceanic Science in May 2008. Amy is an avid Badger fan, and can be seen in red and white on game days.

Her Meteorology career began in Topeka, Kansas at WIBW-TV in 2008. She was with WIBW for three years, and while there she "saw it all." From the Christmas Eve Blizzard of 2009, to numerous severe weather events and tornado outbreaks- Amy has covered many weather phenomenons. Amy was even on an episode of Discovery Channel's "Storm Chasers" for coverage of the May 21, 2011 tornado in Topeka, KS.

When she's not forecasting the weather, Amy manages lululemon athletica in downtown Spokane. She is a passionate runner, and is impressed by the beautiful trails and landscapes of the Inland Northwest. She is a member of the Spokane Swifts running team and can be seen at most local races. Amy also delivers meals for Meals on Wheels and is a member of the Junior League of Spokane. In her down time, she enjoys watching sports, working out, doing yoga, reading and spending time with family and friends. She is excited to be a part of the KHQ Weather Authority team, and to call Spokane home.

Don't Give Up on Summer Yet!

    The first couple of days of Fall have actually felt like Fall... Saturday saw a few clouds in the morning and afternoon with even a few peeks at the sun and temperatures that were in the low to mid 60's. Not much change into Sunday or Monday either.... More of the same but maybe a degree or two warmer.

    However, from there things get interesting! And yes, in a good way! Summer realized it had given up to quickly on the Pacific Northwest, and personally I think summer is feeling bad because guess who's back! Now, because we are in the midst of fall, we are losing daylight at a pretty good clip, in fact at 3 minutes and 24 seconds a day! So because of our lack of daylight, even though our summer pattern is back, it cant get to the 80's and 90's like it can in July and August. There just isn't enough daylight and sun to heat us up. However, I think most will be just fine with mid to upper 70's!

    Tuesday is our transition day back to the 70's! A ridge of high pressure moves back in over the Pacific Northwest and starts to pull in some warmer air to the region. It will take a few days to reach the 70's but by Wednesday we will be well on our way! And Mother Nature looks to keep it that way to the end of the week with us staying in the mid to upper 70's into next weekend!
