Weather Channel Meteorologist Diagnosed with Colon Cancer

GregForbesDr. Greg Forbes, the Weather Channel’s severe weather expert, will be off our air for a few weeks as he undergoes colon cancer surgery. The cancer was detected during a routine exam and, because it was spotted early, his prognosis for a full recovery is good.

“Dr. Forbes’ commitment to our audience in times of severe weather has always been remarkable,” writes Weather Channel president David Clark in a note to the staff. “Witnessing him go full bore during the storms these past few days, knowing what he has been dealing with, is something I, for one, will tell my grandkids about. We are grateful for him and look forward to his full recovery and welcoming him back very soon.”
